Jack Russell’s Great White
Jack Russell is an American rock vocalist. He is a founding member of the American hard rock band Great White.
Russell was with Great White from 1981 until 1996, then took three years off to record and release his first solo album, entitled Shelter Me, but rejoined in 1999 until the band broke up in 2001. He then tried touring solo under his own name briefly, then changed the band name to “Jack Russell’s Great White” and toured from 2002 to 2005, while also releasing his second solo album For You in 2002.
Jack Russell’s Great White was the official name of the band that performed at The Station nightclub fire in 2003.
In 2006, he began touring with the official Great White band when they reformed with their classic lineup, but left the band in 2009 due to a fall in his bathroom where he cracked two vertebrae and herniated a disc. He had multiple back surgeries and was using a plethora of pain medication. Having fallen into alcoholism, the sudden death of his good friend Jani Lane of Warrant, propelled him to get help and become sober.
Fully recovered, he started touring again as Jack Russell’s Great White in December 2011 to avoid confusion with the still-touring official Great White band which had continued onward in 2009 with a different singer following Russell’s departure.
In 2012, Russell guest-starred on VH1 Classics “That Metal Show”, where he revealed his side of the Great White story, and how he was feeling well and ready for more.
In 2017, Jack Russell’s Great White released their first album titled He Saw It Comin’
In August 2021, Jack Russell’s Great White is releasing a sequel to Great White’s 1998 tribute album to Led Zeppelin titled Great Zeppelin II: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin. On 13 July 2021, a cover of “Whole Lotta Love” was released.
