      Jack Russell's Great White

      with He Kill 3, Distant Warning, Elevated Sickness, FN Wylde
      Original lead singer of Great White, now with his own band of pirates touring as Jack Russells Great White! New album out now!Jack Russell (born December 5, 1960, Montebello, California), is an American rock vocalist. He is a founding member of the American hard rock band Great White.BiographyRussell grew up with influences such as Robert Plant and Steven Tyler, and became a vocalist for many bands in high school and later on. He met Mark Kendall in a concert and began plans to form a band called Dante Fox. Russell and Kendall decided to change their name of the band to Great White because their favorite pastime is shark fishing. Russell has been in the band from 1981 to the present day, except for taking three years off from 1996 to 1999 to record and release a solo album, entitled Shelter Me. He also released a second solo album album entitled For You in 2002. According to Great White's website, Russell's ancestry is English, Irish and Native American.As of 2010, Jack has been on hiatus from Great White, due to a perforated bowel. Now fully recovered, he formed his own version of Great White with a brand-new lineup in December 2011. To avoid confusion, he named the band "Jack Russell's Great White."SideffectFacebookWe have all played in different bands over the years, and we have all been friends over the years, and we hope to bring back old fans, and we hope to gain new fans...... Each of us has our own influences, and we bring it to the table by mixing up our sound.. Too many great bands to mention here influenced us over the years...Jack Russells Great White represents the next phase of his legacy. On January 27, 2017 Frontiers Music Srl will lay the framework for this new phase with the release of He Saw it Comin.For me this is so much more than a collection of songs, it is the culmination of a lifetime of living. It is about addictions , love, pain and many facets of the human condition. I tend to write autobiographically and on this album I dealt with topics I've never explored, explains Russell of the new record.Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum Hard Rock entitys storied origins, Jack Russell set his sights on the future. In December 2011, Jack Russells Great White first bared its teeth. Robby Lochner has been with Jack since its inception, they soon welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montanathis time as a guitar player and keyboardist they then added drummer Dicki Fliszar , then bassist Dan McNay. This group has a sharp, soaring, eclectic, hook laden new album ready, boasting the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell and Montana icons in the first place.Its a powerful band, Russell proclaims. The music is dynamic and Ive gone where Ive never gone before. Lochner was a catalyst for moving forward. I wasnt sure how the writing would go at first but soon realized the chemistry is beyond words. Hes my copilot and one of my best friends.This past year the musicians hit the studio to cut their official full-length debut. It taps into the bluesy bombast and heavy energy of Russells celebrated material, but its a distinctly modern metallic monster.We want the new material to blow peoples ears back, Russell goes on. It has the elements of the best of Great White, but theres diversity, vibe and an edge to it. It draws from our 60s and 70s roots in a more modern way.Montana agrees, Its got the classic sound. The first element is Jacks voice. No other band sounds like this one, ever did or does now. When I was 17-years-old, I remember walking around the UCLA campus listening to the bands first EP. I was a fan before I ever joined the band. Were going to maintain that integrity moving forward.That integrity became forged over nearly thirty years. In 1984, the band broke out of the Los Angeles scene with its self-titled debut followed by seismic platinum-selling outings such as 1987s Once Bitten... and 1989s Twice Shy. Moving over 10 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock stalwarts into the 21st century until 2011, when Russell went on to form Jack Russells Great White.Ultimately, the new music is for the millions of fans who stuck by Russell all these years. Its everything theyve been waiting for and more.
