Station Fire Survivor To Join GREAT WHITE On Tonight's 'Larry King Live'

Ryan McBride of Westerly, Rhode Island's The Westerly Sun is reporting that a local man will bring his survival story from The Station nightclub fire to "Larry King Live" tonight at 9 p.m. on CNN.

Donovan P. Williams, 34, lost his eyesight and suffered burns over 65 percent of his body in the tragic blaze that killed 100 people. Hard rock band GREAT WHITE's pyrotechnics display touched off the fire in the West Warwick nightclub on Feb. 20, 2003.

Tonight, Williams joins the band's lead singer Jack Russell and guitarist Mark Kendall on national television.

"I'm excited about (being a guest on the show)," said Williams, who was asked to appear on the show on Monday night and was scheduled to fly to the Larry King studio in Los Angeles this morning. "I don't get nervous about stuff like that."

Williams, an ardent promoter of the Station Family Fund, said he appeared on CNN a year ago to speak on the same topic. That time he went to a television studio in Hartford.

"It might be a little different with Larry King sitting there," he admitted.
