JACK RUSSELL To Release Sequel To GREAT WHITE's LED ZEPPELIN Tribute Album 'Great Zeppelin'

Jack Russell says that he is planning on releasing the follow-up to the GREAT WHITE album "Great Zeppelin: A Tribute To Led Zeppelin".

Released in 1998, "Great Zeppelin: A Tribute To Led Zeppelin" was a covers album dedicated to songs of LED ZEPPELIN. It was recorded live in December 1996 at the Galaxy theatre of Santa Ana, California and was made available through the French label Axe Killer.

Speaking to Rock Rage Radio about his plans for the remainder of 2019, Jack said (hear audio below): "Well, right now we have a record coming out… actually, two records coming out. We have one called 'Once Bitten - Acoustical Bites'. And what that is, basically, is the 'Once Bitten' [1987] re-recorded unplugged. And JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE is doing that… And we're also doing live 'Great Zeppelin II'. I don't know if had a chance to hear the first one. If you haven't heard 'Great Zeppelin', it's a tribute to LED ZEPPELIN performed live by GREAT WHITE. This was when I was still back with the band. They're all different songs. So I'm looking forward to doing that. And then I have a new album we're working on for the band, JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE. And I also have a project called JACK RUSSELL AND THE SHELTER DOGS, which is my blues band, which is all great, great blues players that played with Lionel Richie, Marvin Gaye… I mean, these guys played with everybody."

Russell was fired from GREAT WHITE in December 2011 (after being on hiatus from the group since 2009). He sued his onetime bandmates the following year over their continued use of the GREAT WHITE name after Jack had taken a leave of absence from the band for medical reasons. A short time later, Russell was countersued by Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Audie Desbrow, claiming the vocalist's self-destructive behavior was damaging the GREAT WHITE name (they also alleged he was charging promoters less for his own touring version of GREAT WHITE). The parties settled in July 2013 without going to trial, with Russell now performing as JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE while the others are continuing as GREAT WHITE.

In addition to Jack, JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE features former GREAT WHITE bassist-turned-guitarist Tony Montana (as a guitar player and keyboardist), Dan McNay (MONTROSE) on bass, Robby Lochner (FIGHT) on guitar and Dicki Fliszar (BRUCE DICKINSON) on drums.

JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE's debut album, "He Saw it Comin'", was released in January 2017 and featured the singles "Blame It On The Night", "Sign Of The Times" and "Love Don't Live Here".
