Drew Glackin (1963-2008)

01.15.08 - News about a dear friend...
We are very saddened with the passing of our close and dear friend, Drew Glackin. He was a multi-instrumentalist of rare talent with a powerfully generous personal presence. Drew played a big part in supporting Vitamin-D when we started here in Brooklyn. Dennis met Drew many years ago when both played with the group Willard Grant Conspiracy. He was a vital part of our music family. We are still in shock and miss him terribly. For more about Drew visit drewglackin.com.
