That was sad. Great White has always been a favorite of mine. I guess Jack Russsell wanted to see them too. I feel for the DJ also. JR seemed to be one of his favorite interviews and to hear him like that must have been really upsetting.

Haven't listened to the interview yet but watched the video...yeesh!

 

I saw Great White play in Arizona in '03 (I think that was the year). Jack was feeling pretty good, they had been out on the river drinking all day. Halfway through the set he pulls up his shirt to reveal his big belly and says to the crowd something like "any of you ladies want this?" You could hear this big groan go up from the crowd. I don't think any of the ladies took him up on his offer. :yikes:

 

Ok, just listened to the interview. It gets good just after 10 minutes so it takes a bit to get to the meat and potatoes. What is he smoking? I hope they use the shout out he gave the station! LOL

You gotta wonder though how much the Rhode Island fire still affects these guys, that would easily be enough to drive me to drink every day to just forget about it! The end of that interview was very strange? Almost like he has a split personality and a different one popped out at the end.

 

But watching that live video is just freaking sad! This is one of my favorite bands from back in the day, I saw them open for Whitesnake in 1987 and they blew them off the stage! Hard to imagine that from seeing them now! Who needs a chair onstage to perform hard rock (unless you are Jackyl and the chair is being used to sink a chainsaw into!)

Hmmm, Jack sounded pretty coherent up to the end, almost like he decided just to mess around a bit to me?

 

The video, was in-audible, could not hear a note, but the chair and cane aren't surprising, hell we are all getting OLD!

 

Would agree with Steve, I am sure that that fire is still a focal point in the bands memories and we all knkow the best way to cover up bad memories.

 

I think GW are a great band, many great albums and I saw them open for Judas Preist on the Defenders Of The Faith tour, Great White was supporting the S/T album and they killed it!

I'm going to be seeing Great White and Dokken at Sturgis in Aug. Hopefully Jack has it together a bit better by then.

Wow, I'm not even sure what to say or think after hearing that. I do hope he gets better too.

 

I think Great White used to come to Dibbo's in Hudson, WI on Valentine's Day for a few years in a row, sort of like an annual thing and I never got down there to see them. My bad and I wish I would've.

This will be my second time seeing them. The first time they played all the big hits but Mark had major sound problems with his guitar for the first few songs, and played some 10 min guitar track off an album he recorded. Plus Jack was pretty looped so it was an odd show.

 

Maybe Jack will decide he wants to see Great White play and end up drinking a beer beside me instead of singing. :lol:

I'm really surprised some are joking about his condition...really surprised. Im just amazed...looking at him in 1992 as opposed to today. Looks like two different people...

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me.
