Saw him several times with the 5 Rogues/Mandela, Bush and Alice Cooper. One fine drummer.

Alice Cooper posted this on his Facebook:

Rest In Peace Whitey! 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 rocks premier drummers, but in my opinion he was very under rated and under publicized - he was certainly a drummer's drummer! Canada is less one world class musician...
