Crowbar's Rhéal Lanthier Passes

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Rhéal Lanthier, a founding member of the legendary band, Crowbar from Hamilton. He passed away after a brave battle with dementia on March 1, 2020. Our condolences to his family, friends and fans. 

Here is a mini-bio from the official Crowbar website:
Born in the foothills of the Laurentians in scenic Buckingham, Quebec, Rhéal came into this world with music flowing through his veins. This passion took him on the road with his guitar at a young age, working with bands like the Ascots, Ronnie Hawkins and so many more. He is known as a master of his craft, and for the joie de vie that makes him a favourite both on and off the stage.
This is a comment from the Unofficial: Crowbar Facebook page
It is with deep sadness we say goodbye to our dearest Rhéal Lanthier as he left us peacefully yesterday afternoon. A man of unwavering kindness, soul & rhythm - Rhéal was truly one-of-a-kind & will be sorely missed by so many. Rest In Peace sweet Frenchman. We love you brother.
We will add more comments as we find them.
