Terry Glaze

Terrence Lee Glaze (born November 29, 1964) is an American singer and guitarist who is best known for his early work with heavy metal band Pantera.[1]

PanteraEdit

Born in Columbus, Ohio and raised in Texas,[citation needed] Glaze was the lead singer of Pantera from 1982 to 1986, although he originally joined the band as a second guitarist in 1981, when the band was still rehearsing with original lead singer Donnie Hart. Glaze took over vocal duties in 1982 after Hart left the band, while still contributing some additional guitar parts on some of the band's songs.[1] His vocal range caught the attention of many record label A & R's and he was credited for bringing Pantera to the forefront of heavy metal music, but a dispute in the band's direction led to Glaze's departure.[citation needed]

Post-PanteraEdit

In 1986, Glaze joined three rock musicians from Tennessee to form the band Lord Tracy,[1] releasing one LP (Deaf Gods of Babylon) in 1989 through Uni Records. The band broke up in 1991[1] and Glaze formed another band, Blowphish, which included Mike Malinin (Goo Goo Dolls). When Blowphish failed to land a major record deal, Glaze moved to Prince George's County, Maryland, where he plays locally with his party band The Crayfish,[1] and occasionally gets together with other local musicians.

In May 2006, Glaze appeared throughout VH1's Behind the Music: Pantera. Notable moments include him talking about Dimebag Darrell being buried with the famous guitar of Eddie Van Halen, used around the Van Halen II era.

In April 2010, Rex Brown invited Glaze onstage during an Arms of the Sun gig in Dallas to perform a couple of old Pantera tracks, "All Over Tonight"[2] and "Come-On Eyes".[3] It was the first time since 1986 that Glaze had played with a former Pantera bandmate.

Glaze currently lives in Bowie, Maryland[4] with his wife, Lori, and their two children.[1]
