About Glass Tiger
The Ontario-based band Tokyo toured the province for several years before changing their name to Glass Tiger and signing with Capitol.
Their debut album, The Thin Red Line, became a hit when "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" reached the top of the national charts in the summer of 1986. After 1988's Diamond Sun, drummer Michael Hanson quit, leaving guitarist Al Connelly, vocalist Alan Frew, bassist Wayne Parker, and keyboard player Sam Reid. Released in 1991, Simple Mission was Glass Tiger's last album during their original run. They re-formed in 2003, this time with drummer Chris McNeill, and continued touring throughout the following decades. Studio album 31 appeared in 2018, and 33 followed a year later. ~ John Bush
