Glass Tiger singer Alan Frew suffers stroke

Pop Goes The News — Alan Frew, lead singer of Canadian pop rock band Glass Tiger, is recovering from a stroke he suffered Thursday.

The 58-year-old Ontario-based musician revealed Saturday the stroke caused trauma to his right side.

“This will now be the fight of my life,” he shared on social media, including Instagram.

Frew, who has been working on an album of cover songs from the ‘80s, vowed to recover.

“Those of you who pray by all means do so,” he wrote, “and those of you like me who don’t send me your energy and I will use it all to return to you as soon as I can.”

Born in Scotland, Frew rose to fame in Canada in the mid-80s as frontman for Glass Tiger, whose hits include “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone),” “Someday,” “I Will Be There” and “Thin Red Line.”

The group won five Juno Awards and earned a Grammy nomination.

Frew released two solo albums: 1994’s Hold On and 2000’s Wonderland.

He also co-wrote “I Believe” for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
