Whitey Glan, who served as a session drummer for Lou Reed and Alice Cooper, has passed away at the age of 71, after being diagnosed with lung cancer in September. Cooper penned the following tribute for him:
“I picked Whitey Glan as the drummer for my ‘Welcome To My Nightmare’ tour because he was simply the best drummer around, not knowing he could drink me under a table. He was just a great guy, everybody who’s worked with him considered him one of their best friends. He was one of rock’s premier drummers, but in my opinion, he was very underrated and underpublicized — he was certainly a drummer’s drummer! Canada is less one world class musician… rest in peace, Whitey.”
