JACK RUSSELL Says GREAT WHITE Has Little In Common With 'Hair Metal' Bands

Amanda Chamberlain of IN Utah This Week recently conducted an interview with GREAT WHITE vocalist Jack Russell. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.

On looking to pour a good load of cash into real estate:

"When they knocked 'em down from a million-five to a million, my wife and I thought real estate would make a good investment."

On whether he would ever partake in a reality-TV show:

"Those shows always use sub-prime people who were kinda famous for five minutes and I don't want to get lumped in with that. Is the money really worth your dignity?"

On GREAT WHITE's hair metal stigma:

"We might be labeled as hair metal, but GREAT WHITE has always been just a blues, rock 'n' roll band. We were never the magazine cover darlings. It wasn't like, 'I'm Bret Michaels, I'm so good-looking.' It was like, 'You know what? I'm tired of this weave stuff.'"
