Great White

While one infamous nightclub show eclipsed their previous achievements, the hard rock/heavy metal band Great White would much rather you remember their Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance, the over six million records they sold, and their double platinum album ...Twice Shy.

Formed in the early '80s by vocalist Jack Russell and guitarist Mark Kendall, Great White were regulars of the L.A. club scene, playing their Led Zeppelin- and AC/DC-influenced metal to a quickly growing fan base. Local radio play and more gigging helped sell 20,000 copies of their independent releases, the Out of the Night EP and the full-length Shot in the Dark, both released in 1983.

The EMI label took notice, signed the band, and released its self-titled, major-label debut a year later. Shot in the Dark would be reissued by the label in 1987, the same year as the new album Once Bitten... appeared with the hit single "Rock Me." The album went platinum, but 1989's ...Twice Shy took things even further thanks in no small part to the massive success of the single "Once Bitten Twice Shy," a cover of a Mott the Hoople song written by Mott member Ian Hunter.

Long tours with Ratt and a co-headlined tour with Tesla kept the band out of the studio until 1991 when the polished Hooked appeared with two different album covers, one a provocative side shot of a mermaid hanging off an anchor in mid-air and one less scandalous with the mermaid still submerged. Hooked went gold while their 1992 follow-up, Psycho City, sold less, leading to EMI saying goodbye to the band with the 1993 compilation The Best of Great White.

Sail Away from 1994 found the band on Zoo, while 1996's Let It Rock was released by Imago. A live set of cover tunes featuring the work of their favorite band appeared as Great Zeppelin: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin, released by Cleopatra in 1999. That same year, Can't Get There from Here on the Portrait label gave fans their first taste of Russell's new writing partnership with longtime friend and former Night Ranger member Jack Blades. Another set of covers formed the 2002 Cleopatra album Recover, but this time the choices were surprising, with the Cult's "Love Removal Machine" and X's "Burning House of Love" getting the Great White treatment.

Forgotten by the mainstream, they were brought back into the limelight when pyrotechnics used by the band sparked a fire in a Rhode Island nightclub on February 20, 2003, killing 100 people, including the band's guitarist, Ty Longley. The 2004 reissue of Recover drew some media attention, since the Horizon label had given it a new and now morbid title, Burning House of Love. Trials concerning the fire continued on into 2006 as questions concerning who authorized the pyrotechnics were being investigated. The band spent the rest of the year touring and playing some benefit concerts for victims of the fire. In early 2007 they began celebrating their 25th anniversary with some West Coast shows that were tied to the release of VH1 Classic Presents: Metal Mania - Stripped, Vol. 3 and in the summer they released a new studio album, Back to the Rhythm. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

Hey pandora why dont you play shot in the dark great white classic.rock s !
Hey hey baby no more lies hey hey baby this is a big goodbye!
Can't wait to see these guys at the fair tomorrow night!
What f**king idiot wrote this brilliant line. While one infamous nightclub show eclipsed their previous achievements Buddy it was far from just infamous, it was a downright horrific tragedy not just for the band but for the 100's that died. I love Pandora's stations but cannot stand their bios as most are wrong and or idiotic.

Very few bands can pull off sounding amazing live. Great White does <3<3<3
Awsome band!!
When sttikes deserts you never chang heart.
I wake in the night to find yoi on my mind.
Where the heck is "Sail Away"
Back to the Rhythm is a great rock and roll record if none of you have heard it you should give it a listen.
Your here in my heart where nobody else will ever be.good song!

When this came out it was constantly blaring out of the windows of cars in LA...It seemed to be some sort of an anthem song or something?
Love this song
Auto correct sux!...nuff said...The Station
The Station...bu f f said...
Too bad a pyrotechnic display malfunction killed over 100 in Providence RI...Great Band!..neith e r the band or fans deserved that!
My wedding song in 91. Still listen to this album love it

Today’s music is so sad, all about how no one love me, why life is so bad, mommy please give me attention. The 80th/90th was fun, music was fun, boy trying to get in girls panties and having fun. A concert at a football stadium was under 40 dollars, today you need to get a bank laon to see someone.
It's a sad tragedy that happened-who e v e r was at fault, but I find it amazing that this is what everyone associates them with. I actually would've never even thought about it except for all the posts... I think the politically correct term is "Arena Rock" as opposed to hair band, but I know what you mean and I was there when they blew up the ozone layer with all of that hairspray!
Why does'nt pandora have they're Zeppelin covers?
My sincere condolences to Mr. Black and his family.

Awsome blues guitarest Mark Kendell
Nit only does this band kick mager a**!, they were awesome to meet as well! Nice guys :-)
Awesome live show. Love the music. Always welcome in Oklahoma.

Great White has two versions of their band touring right now. If you want to hear the songs the way you remember them, you'll want to listen Jack Russell's Great White!
Lost my virginity to my sexy husband 24 years ago.
These guys are amazing live....seen them many times and they never disappoint.. . . a n d if ya get a chance, listen to some of their Led Zep covers....it almost sounds better than Zep themselves.. .
thebartman.. . h a v e to disagree...d o not at all find them musically superior to their fellow glam/pop metal bands...in fact i find them very middle of the road. also, hair band is a misnomer. long hair has long been a part of rock and roll for decades.

Oh, and one more thing, it wasn't Great White that was playing there that night. It was Jack Russell and some musicians playing some Great White music. They were technically called Jack Russell's Great White.

Streeter, it was 100 people, and you're ignorant putz. I'm from RI, and I remember distinctly that the club owners and band were given permits by the city/state to have pyrotechnics . Even though the owners and band manager were found guilty, it was not their fault. But the stupid public wanted to make someone be the scapegoat. It was negligence on the part of the inspectors part. But for someone to have gone to jail for that was absurd and offensive. It was a tragic accident.

Outstanding band.
great white --a very undewrated band---a cut above the other hair bands
yeah baby!
This has become my favorite Great White song - thanks to a man that I love and have loved for the past 27 years.
This is my favorite Great White song .
us to listen to them at Artisea Music Works in Redondo Beach, along with Ratt and Motley Crue.
always will enjoy great white music
I agree with Sherjas that was a terrible, terrible accident...o n e accident however shouldn't erase the previous 20 yrs of music they put out.
Still waiting for the Hooked CD to enter the play list. Original Queen of Sheeba is one of their best songs followed by Heartbreaker . The whole disk rocks.
Just saw them live this week, what a terrific show....awes o m e live preformance. . . . g o see them!!!
sherjas
Streeter, that was a terrible, terrible accident and i am sure no one felt worse than the guys in the band...one accident shouldn't erase the previous 20 yrs of music they put out..get a brain!
Awesome;) I love em,i broadcast live on www.vaughnli v e . t v playing air guitar to Great White among others:)
Can't belive this band is still allowed to broadcast their music after they were responsible for killing 101 people in the Station Fire in Rhode Island,

Great band, one of the best of the the time. Live shows are amazing as Jack Russel sounds as good in concert as he does on the albums. Have had the priviledge of seeing them live 8 times (most recent was 2008) and have never been dissappointe d . The typical radio songs do not do the band justice as they are a true heavy blues rock band!! I hope to see Jack back performing with the band soon!!!

The greatest "hair band" of all time musically speaking. The are (were) greatly underrated and still today are sadly only known for their radio hits which don't necessarily show their true talents. Great White's live performances will make a fan out of almost anyone and is a mind blowing experience for those of us who love the music. There is no band other than Led-Zeppelin that can bust out bluesy-rock like Great White or could pull off a Led-Zeppelin cover tune. Fan friendly also!
Need songs from Hooked played. That was the best Great White CD followed by Psycho City. Just didn't get as much airplay.
My favorite band, hands down.
makes you wanna put a riped up shirt on and some short shorts and jump a round singin ur head off!!!
Still my favorite 80s band and in my top 5 of all time
