It'll be good if Jack comes out at that first show and just slays it.

Why? I'd rather see him fall flat on his tits. Same with the 'other' Great White. Only then will they realize they need each other.

So many surgeries, two back surgeries because the first one didn’t take, a perforated bowel, a broken pelvis, a shattered femur (leg) and a few other things. I’m like the Evel Knievel of Rock.

How does one break a pelvis and shatter a femur? Was he motorcycling over 15 buses while singing 'Mista Bone'?

Wasn't there 2 Saxon's making the rounds not that long ago?

Yep - Oliver/Dawson Saxon. Supposedly they are still active, but with Saxon putting out great material on the excellent Call To Arms, I imagine Oliver/Dawson Saxon is somewhat marginalized now

Indeed. The only real Saxon is Biff's one.

Addicts can manage a whole lot.

I question whether he can even sing anymore. The perforated bowel (Geez it hurts just writing that) was caused by abuse of a drug he used to be able to sing at higher registers (I think it was a steroid of some type?). So the real question is can he still sing?

If he owns the name, though, why is he going out as Great White featuring Jack Russell or whatever? And didn't he once tour as Jack Russell's Great White? Maybe he's being respectful to the name, I don't know. Seems like he may not own it like he thinks, though.

Whoever is more on the side of right, this is all about money. It'll be good if Jack comes out at that first show and just slays it.

I think you nailed it with the money. Its not about the fans - its about the fans money.

Right. But maybe he's just lost an octave or two. That's fairly normal. Guess we'll see, though.

Doesn't sound to me like he owns the name. If he did, why would he say that didn't care if they continued as their own version of Great White?

Obi's always been a jerk from what I've read over the years. Sounds like he's at the center of this whole issue.

To be honest, after the whole Station Nightclub fiasco I'm surprised the name "Great White" has any value left whatsoever.

Fiasco, indeed. What came after, anyway. Great White didn't deserve the beating they received from the public and family members of the victims. Again, that was all about money. Humans are despicable people at times.

I like the latter output from the band. I think its a shame all this bickering is taking place though. Fans just want the band to come back together and rock.

I don't know about you, but I think Jack sounds pretty damn good. Wish there were more videos, though.

He sounds good but I figured he would. Going by his recent interviews, he's sounded like he has things together and was confident in his ability to perform live. I hope he stays well.

So it looks like the "other" Great White is moving on without Jack...

Quote :
Great White will be releasing 'Elation' on May 18th through Frontiers Records, the band's first recording with former XYZ vocalist Terry Ilous at the helm.

Great White guitarist Mark Kendall states, "First of all this will be our very first studio album with our new singer Terry Ilous, The new release will include 12 new original songs. Secondly it will be released in all of Europe, Japan and USA the same day, May 18th 2012. All the promotion for the album begins on April 18th. This is just a brief pre-announcement. Also we will be recording a live album at the Key Club on March 22nd for a future release. I would imagine the release date for the live album will announced later in the year. We will also be filming the show for a DVD that will also become available at a future date, to be announced. We are extremely excited about our new studio album and are looking forward to sharing our new music with you all."

Great White -- consisting of Mark Kendall (guitar), Michael Lardie (keyboards/guitar), Scott Snyder (bass), Audie Desbrow (drums) and Terry Illous (vocals) -- will be performing their 30th Anniversary show on March 22nd at the Key Club in Hollywood, California. Tickets for the event can be pruchased at www.keyclub.com.

Interesting title. Maybe they're "Elated" that Jack Russell isn't around anymore??

That's what I was thinking. A giant albatross has been lifted from their neck and they couldn't be happier. For now anyway.

They could pull off Great White w/out Jack Russell but not w/out Mark Kendall. Although, the Zeppelin covers are gonna be lacking now (IMHO)

Could be a tough sell for longtime fans. Jack is "The Voice" of Great White. Like Sebastain in Skid Row, for some, there is just no substitute.

I'm not really fussed either way. I haven't purchased a new release from Great White since that Zeppelin tribute album. I do enjoy reading about the drama though.

Oh, it's a total dig at Jack. Just like Dream Theater's A Dramatic Turn Of Events is a dig at—or at least reference to—Portnoy. And in both instances it's lame.

I'll buy this album because it'll probably be good, but it sucks that Jack isn't involved. Jack seems to be taking the AA approach to things now by not being confrontational, being forgiving, and so forth, which is good for him, but at the last time he's being screwed.

As much as we know Great White isn't Great White without Jack, most people aren't going to care. Great White will do better than Jack Russell's Great White.
