7 full length "studio" lps between 84-94

4 full length "studio lps (now 5) from 94 to present

and you got The Zeppelin tribute and Recover cd in that same timeframe.

My point being they have still been releasing "quality" music not too far off from what put them on the map in the first place. IMHO, without the tragedy... we'd have even more music from them.

I understand if you don't care for their music, but to me a has been is a group that relies on the merits of what was done in their past and not doing anything else.

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.

Are we talking "selling 50 albums opposed to selling 15"? Or playing to a live crowd of 50 vs. 30, including bartenders and waitresses? Razz

I was just joking around really.

I liked them, used to own a few of their albums, the last one I heard was ...Twice Shy. I just basically stopped listening to that style of music once the 80s ended. So I really had no idea how long their career lasted.

Hey S.D


check out the live Zeppelin tribute cd.

quality stuff w/out any 80's attachment whatsoever.

and what you originally posted about "has beens" was funny. I just gotta stick up for a band that is enjoyable.

My favorite Great White album back in the day was "Recovery Live" (I think that was the title). There were a couple great Zeppelin covers on there...and a smokin' version of "Money (That's What i Want)". I always thought that was a killer disc.

I tried revisiting the two GW albums I own yesterday: Once Bitten... and ...Twice Shy. I only managed to get through album and half before giving up. "Save Your Love" is a great ballad, the rest though very tamed and repetitive, haven't aged well at all... I think I'll stick to early Bon Jovi and Kip Winger Wink

Speaking of Great White, got this email about the M3 Festival yesterday:

A message from Merriweather Post Pavilion

There have been some changes to this year's M3 line-up and we want to fill you in. Unfortunately, we just learned that Cinderella is unable to perform as their lead guitarist, Jeff LaBar, is currently receiving attention for an unspecified medical condition, and the band will be off the road through mid June. We wish Jeff well.

We are glad to report, however, that we've added LA Guns and Great White to the bill - and there's another exciting addition. There will be an unforgettable M3 All-Star Jam with many artists from this year's festival joining onstage, showcasing their talents in this one-time only epic event.

We look forward to seeing you May 11 and 12th!

If you have any questions regarding this change, you can reach us via email at customersupport@ticketfly.com. Please include the name of the event and your confirmation number in all correspondences.

Thank you!

- Ticketfly Customer Support

Cinderella cancelling a tour? No surprise there. The fact that it's not because of Tom Kiefer's voice however is shocking.

Which LA Guns? Tracii's or Phil's? And which GW? Jack or Mark's? Oy vey!!

A dude at another forum I hang out on apparently has something to do with the promotional team for the M3 festival, and he sez it's the Phil Lewis-fronted L.A. Guns and the Terry Ilous-fronted Great White.

Just in case anybody cares. I've done my good deed for the day. Very Happy

You mean, you actually go to other concerts that don't involve Iron Maiden? Color me surprised. Very Happy

But seriously, you're welcome.
