Great White - Discography (1984-2012)

Great White

Great White is an American hard rock band, formed in Los Angeles in 1977. The band gained popularity during the
1980s and early 1990s. Thy released several albums in the late 1980s and
gained airplay on MTV with music videos for songs like "Once Bitten,
Twice Shy". The band reached their peak popularity with the double
platinum album ...Twice Shy in 1989.

While one infamous nightclub fire incident in 2003 eclipses their
previous achievements, the hard rock/heavy metal band Great White would
much rather you remember their Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock
Performance and the over six million records they sold.

Unlike many of the other acts of its genre to emerge from the Southern
California scene, Great White never had to rely on a glam image or
outlandish gimmicks to get noticed. Soulful, bluesy songs with tenacious
grooves - brought to life by the inimitable vocals of Jack Russell and
signature fretwork of Mark Kendall - were all that was needed to make a
lasting impression.

The band's distinctive bluesy rock got the attention of fans looking for
something different thae typical 80's hard rock of Aerosmith or Van

Band History

The 1980's

Vocalist Jack Russell met guitarist Mark Kendall in 1977, and Kendall
asked Russell to join his band. The next year in 1978, the two formed
Dante Fox, with bassist Don Costa (later a one-time member of Ozzy
Osbourne) and drummer Tony Richards (later a member of W.A.S.P.). They
played their first gig in 1981 at The Troubadour in Hollywood,
California. After recording several demos, the band chose as manager
Alan Niven, who had worked for the independent distributor Greenworld in
Torrance, California and had dealt with Mötley Crüe's debut
self-release. Niven suggested the name change from Dante Fox after
seeing singer Jack Russell introduce Mark Kendall during his solo as
"Mark Kendall, the Great White", due to his naturally white-blonde hair,
white Fender Telecaster guitar, white jumpsuit, and white Capezio
shoes. In 1982, founding members Mark Kendall, Jack Russell, drummer
Gary Holland, and bassist Lorne Black recorded and released a 5-song EP,
Out of the Night, on the independent label Aegean formed by Niven.
Niven then convinced the Los Angeles radio station KMET to begin adding
songs from the EP to its playlist in heavy rotation. KLOS-FM soon did
the same.

The band suddenly went from drawing 100 people to a local club to
drawing thousands in L.A. concert halls such as Perkins Palace in
Pasadena, The Palace in Hollywood and the Country Club in Reseda. As an
unsigned act, Great White headlined at Six Flags Magic Mountain in
Valencia playing to 6,250 people. Near the end of 1983, EMI America
signed the band and subsequently released Great White's eponymous debut
album in early 1984. The band immediately toured the UK supporting
Whitesnake's Slide It In tour and the entire US and Canada opening for
Judas Priest's Defenders of the Faith tour. Shot in the Dark, their
follow-up independent release, marked the arrival of drummer Audie

By the time Capitol Records signed the band and reissued Shot in the
Dark, keyboardist-guitarist Michael Lardie had come aboard. After the
release of Shot in the Dark, Great White hit the road with Dokken and
was on the verge of even bigger success.

The band hit the mainstream in 1987 when they released Once Bitten...,
which featured the hits "Rock Me" and "Save Your Love". Once Bitten...
was certified platinum in April 1988.

The band followed up with ...Twice Shy in 1989. The album included their
biggest hit, "Once Bitten, Twice Shy", a cover of a UK hit single by
Ian Hunter. They received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Hard Rock
Performance. The album was certified platinum in July 1989 and then
double platinum in September of that same year. The model Bobbie Brown
(also known for being in Warrant's "Cherry Pie" video) appeared in the
video for "Once Bitten, Twice Shy". They finished off the 80s touring in
support of ...Twice Shy as headliners and with some best known bands,
such as Bon Jovi.

The 1990's

The band continued into the next decade performing the song "House of
Broken Love" at the American Music Awards in January 1990. In March,
Great White embarked on their first tour of Japan. They returned to the
United States for the Memorial Day weekend festival dubbed The World
Series of Rock, which featured Whitesnake, Skid Row, Bad English, and
Hericane Alice.

Great White recorded two more albums for Capitol Records, Hooked, which
was certified gold, and Psycho City. In support of Hooked, Great White
did a tour as headliner tour, had a guest slot with German metal band
Scorpions and travelled to Europe and Japan. During this tour Mark
Kendall was hospitalized for an esophageal hemorrhage due to alcoholism,
and was sent to a rehab facility in Tucson Arizona. Guitarist Al
Petrelli replaced Mark during his absence. Psycho City was followed by a
US tour with Kiss.

Great White kept up the pace once Sail Away was released on Zoo Records
in 1994, touring the US several times over the following year and a
half. Their next release, Let It Rock, was released in 1996 through yet
another label, Imago Records.

In 1999, the band released Can't Get There from Here and embarked on a
tour with Ratt, Poison, and L.A. Guns. Before recording this album, Jack
Russell had Desbrow replaced by Myron Grombacher who was unable to
perform because of his chronic Methamphetamine addiction. The album
featured the single "Rollin' Stoned", which managed to chart at No. 8 on
the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Station nightclub fire

The band returned to the national spotlight on 20 February 2003. At the
beginning of a Jack Russell's Great White performance at The Station
night club in Rhode Island, pyrotechnics used by the band's crew created
a spray of sparks that ignited the foam soundproofing material in the
ceiling around the stage. One hundred people, including guitarist Ty
Longley, died in the fire that followed. In 2008, the band agreed to pay
$1 million to survivors and victims' relatives of the fire while
admitting to no wrongdoing. This amount also covers former tour manager
Daniel Biechele along with the band members, record label, and
management as it existed at the time of the fire. The settlement was the
maximum allowed under the band's insurance plan. Victims had previously
received $3.8 million raised by United Way of America.

They've been continously releasing albuns in the 00's, with good quality
consistency, even though the band's rock style is not as popular as in
the 80's.
