Terrence Lee Glaze (born November 29, 1964, Columbus), known as Terry Lee, is a Texas-raised singer and guitarist who is most known for his work in American heavy metal bands Lord Tracy and early-stage Pantera.[1]

Glaze was the lead singer of Pantera from 1982 to 1987, although he originally joined the band as a second guitarist in 1981 when the band was still rehearsing with the original yet session lead singer Donnie Hart. Glaze took over vocal duties in 1982 after Hart left the band, while still contributing some additional guitar parts on some of the band's songs.[1] His vocal range caught the attention of many record label A & R's and therefore he was credited for bringing Pantera to the forefront of heavy metal music, but a dispute in the band's direction led to Glaze's departure.


In 1986, Glaze joined three Tennessee rockers to form the band Lord Tracy,[1] releasing one LP (Deaf Gods of Babylon) in 1989 on MCA records backed UNI records. The band broke up in 1991,[1] and he formed another band, Blowphish, which included Mike Malinin (Goo Goo Dolls). When Blowphish failed to land a major record deal, he moved to Prince George's County, Maryland, where he currently plays locally with his party band, The Crayfish,[1] and occasionally gets together with other local musicians.

In May 2006, Glaze appeared throughout VH1's Behind the Music: Pantera, notable moments include him talking about Darrell being buried with the famous guitar of Eddie Van Halen, used around the "Van Halen II" era.

In April 2010, Rex Brown invited Glaze onstage during an Arms Of The Sun gig in Dallas to perform a couple of old Pantera tracks - "All Over Tonight"[2] and "Come-On Eyes".[3] It was the first time since 1986 that Glaze had played with a former Pantera band-mate.

He currently lives in Bowie, Maryland[4] with his wife, Lori Glaze, and two children.[1]
