RIP, Tim McGlashen

Local musician Tim McGlashen, lead singer of eclectic rock band The Buddhacrush, died unexpectedly yesterday after a brief illness. HandStamp has some information. I heard about this from Cidnie MacNamee of Paisley Close, whose bandmate (and our mutual friend) Amy Price had played in The Buddhacrush when it debuted. She had some nice things to say about McGlashen:

Tim was a huge factor in keeping Houston a musical city, not just by performing but by being an incredible support to other musicians and actively promoting the Houston music scene at every opportunity. Tim kept things going for all of us.

My condolences to McGlashen's friends and family. Rest in peace.

Michael got the news from the Buddhacrush mailing list yesterday.

We see Anders and Amy next week and will be hoisting one in his memory. It seems right to remember a guy as joyful as Tim that way. We'll miss him.

I would like to thank everyone for their encouraging words and prayers during this difficult period.

My brother was a great person who lived life to its fullest. Our family is mourning the loss of "our leader" but we know he is and will always be with us.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and memories with us.

I'm sorry about Tim's death. I only met him once at the Pig Live outside years ago. He was curt and brusque with me when I tried to speak with him. Perhaps he mellowed over the years. It doesn't matter, I never had another chance to get to know him. Moral--be kind to all folks. You usually don't get a chance to do it again.
Peace and out.
