Westin Glass: Home With The Thermals

Westin Glass' Three Easy PIeces

By Leslie Hampton Published May 4th, 2010

Drummer: Westin Glass

Band:The Thermals

Venue: The Blank Club, San Jose on February 13th

Westin Glass plays drums in the indie band The Thermals. Westin plays a 3-piece kit, but still is able to pull a wide range of sounds from his drums. Check out his killer Jody Gere stave snare constructed with black heart maple.

In addition to playing bass, Kathy Foster has handled drums on the band's last few records. The Thermals have been through quite a few drummers and thankfully it seems that Westin has found a home with the Thermals.


When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.
