Jack Russell

Ex-Great White lead singer Jack Russell checked in with Hardrock Haven to talk about his new band, Jack Russell’s Great White; their current tour High Seas and upcoming America Rocks 2012; his current status on being removed from the band and their announcement of a 30-year anniversary release Elation (with Terry Ilous on lead vocals); a “digging in the vault” query about pre-Shot in the Dark tracks like “Black Lace and Leather” and “Survival;” if a new album is on the way; and a whole lot more.

::: Listen to the interview :::

When you look at all of the vocalists to come out of the ’80s, there were few — if any — who could compete with Russell. From his “Jack evil” vocal days on songs like “Down on Your Knees” to his flawless crooning on “Save Your Love” to his sheer Rock greatness on “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” it’s no contest. Now that Jack is back, make sure you catch the band on the High Seas current tour or this summer on America Rocks 2012.

    Jack is the voice we love to hear on those songs. The tacky way in which his bandmates dealt with the subject is deplorable…they definately lost the respect of a lot of the fans with that infamous first statement…they could have just moved on silently without the mudslinging. Bad judgement call…

  2. I agree Jack Russell is one of the great Iconic voices of our generation If you look at Great Whites web site they clearly state the unreasonable demands thaty they placed on MR Russell I mean come on He started thaty band in 1978 and is the only member that has stayed in the band . They can battle in couirt ovrer the name but in my and I thinjk most of americas eyes Jack Russell is Great White! If It were me and they weanted me to pee for employmenyt not5 enjoyment Id tell them to kiss my Great White ass!
