Great White Redux


"Look, there's no burning buildings or naked women, or guns going off or anything like that….It's just a lot of energy."

Would that that were still true. That's Jack Russell, the lead singer of Great White, circa 1988, in a heavy metal magazine that I used to work for.

Great White was onstage at The Station in West Warwick, Rhode Island, and the band's pyrotechnics touched off last night's disastrous fire that killed at least 39 people.
