Statement Regarding Outcome of GW Lawsuit
Since we agreed to settle our differences with Jack Russell, we are hearing some confusion about what each band is doing. We are now posting here three documents that should help clear that up. The first document assigns Jack Russell's trademark rights in "Great White" to Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Audie Desbrow. The second is a license from the band back to Jack Russell so that he can use the name “Jack Russell’s Great White.” The third is an agreed-upon injunction against uses of "Great White" that aren’t allowed in the settlement agreement (which we are not posting).
These are the plain documents - no spin. Anyone interested can read them. We believe our arrangement lets both bands perform without confusing our fans, who spend their time and money coming to see Great White songs played live. Thanks for your continued support. We hope to see you all soon.
Lorne Black, Rest In Peace Brother
Lorne Black was a big part of Great White in our early years. He had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a true bass player to the core!! He was a fan of great bass players and acted as a student of bass playing, always paying close attention to the best in the business. He had a Paul McCartney sensibility and approach in that, instead of just following a guitar line, he played a song within the song. Listen to the bass in "Rock Me", that is a great example of Lorne's God given talent, and contribution to a song. He was always fun to be around and we are really going to miss him:-(. He had many fans around the world, that will also miss him!!
Lorne is gone, but his memory will live on!!
Rest In Peace Brother...Great White
THANK YOU FROM GREAT WHITE
It's been an amazing summer for Grammy nomiated classic rockers, GREAT WHITE. The band recently wrapped up a string of dates in Michigan, Arkansas, Georgia, Nevada, Idaho, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana.
Up next for the band will be concerts in Indiana, Arizona and Colorado. More dates will be announced soon, but the band would like to thank all of its media friends for the support! And, a special thanks to sharing the stage with Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Night Ranger, SLAUGHTER, Vince Neil, Queensryche and all of the local bands we've met along the way!
And, certainly not least, thank you for our fans. We do this for you!
Featuring founder Mark Kendall (guitar), and 28-year-veterans Michael Lardie (guitar, keyboards) and Audie Desbrow (drums), they are joined by lead singer Terry Ilous and bassist Scott Snyder. GREAT WHITE emerged unscathed from late 2011 band member changes. Best known for the 1989 smash “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Great White’s worldwide sales are approaching 10 million. Their song arsenal also includes “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love,” “The Angel Song,” “Mistabone,” “I’ve Got Something For You” and “Feeling So Much Better," and "Hard To Say Goodbye."
