Event description

Description

California native Jack Russell is a rock vocalist and songwriter, and a founding member of early-'80s hard rock radio staples Great White. Citing influences like Robert Plantand Steven Tyler, Russell spent his formative years fronting high-school bands. In 1977 he co-founded the band Danté Fox alongside guitarist Mark Kendall. In 1981 the band changed its name to Great White, and in 1984 the group issued its eponymous debut album via EMI. Great White hit it big in 1987 with their third LP, Once Bitten..., which featured the hit single "Rock Me," and again in 1989 with ...Twice Shy, which included their chart-topping cover of Ian Hunter's "Once Bitten Twice Shy." Russell left the group in 1996 to pursue a solo career, and released Shelter Me in 1999 via MVP Records. That same year saw Russell rejoin the band, but by 2001 Great Whitehad called it quits, holding a farewell show on New Year's Eve at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, California.
