Dave Castagno of RadioScreamer and Screamer Magazine conducted an interview with singer Jack Russell of GREAT WHITE FEATURING JACK RUSSELL (formerly JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE) at this year's NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.
February 20 marks the tenth anniversary of the tragic fire at The Station in West Warwick, Rhode Island. Jack Russell of the band GREAT WHITE, whose pyrotechnics ignited the deadly blaze, will take part in an acoustic performance on February 7 at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, California, with proceeds set to be donated to Acey Longley (pictured below), the son of GREAT WHITE guitarist Ty Longley, who perished in the fire.

The Rhode Island incident became the fourth deadliest fire in U.S. history, killing 100 and injuring hundreds more.
In 2008, GREAT WHITE agreed to pay $1 million to survivors and families of the victims of the fire. They then launched a multi-year benefit tour for the Station Family Fund.
GREAT WHITE FEATURING JACK RUSSELL is not to be confused with the other touring and recording version of GREAT WHITE, which features Mark Kendall, Scott Snyder (bass), Audie Desbrow (drums), Michael Lardie (guitar, keyboards) and Terry Ilous (lead vocals).
