Whatever happened the the great Tompall Glaser? Waylon’s onetime best friend during the outlaw heyday, he made some amazing albums, both alone and with his brothers Jim and Chuck. But since the ’80s he seems to have disappeared. Would love to know if he still performs–or writes/records.

You can also watch a performance of the great song “Rings” and a medley of the Glasers performing three country classics.

Note that Jim Glaser keeps a website and still performs; and four of the Glaser Brothers’ nephews (calling themselves The Brothers Glaser) have recorded a tribute album due to be released in the fall of 2009 (three songs are online for streaming).

  1. Thanks for the update Dennis. Sorry to hear Tompall's not doing so well. And yes, interesting about Jim and Chuck! And kinda sweet.
