One of my heroes is Glen Phillips, who wrote and sang the songs for Toad the Wet Sprocket (with whom he still tours on occasion) and continues to make amazing solo music brimming with his trademark wisdom and warmth.
(This is particularly bad because Glen’s a left-handed guitarist.)
Glen filed this new report yesterday saying that he’s out of surgery; his doctor is confident, and Glen’s in good spirits and ready to get back in the studio and on the road.
I’ll be seeing Glen and my good friend Jonatha Brooke performing together in Pittsburgh on December 6; it’s going to be an epic meeting of two voices I’ve been loving since 1994 and 1995, respectively.
And you should check out their duet, “Sweetest Angel,” on Jonatha’s latest album, The Works.
Get well, Mr. Phillips! Your music has been a source of goodness and light in my life for a long time.
