Drummer Mike Portnoy (THE WINERY DOGS, DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ADRENALINE MOB) was interviewed on the latest edition of “The Classic Metal Show”, which is heard live on Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. EST at TheClassicMetalShow.com.
Singer Jack Russell of GREAT WHITE FEATURING JACK RUSSELL(formerly JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE) was interviewed on the latest edition of “Rockin Metal Revival” with hosts Red and Jerry.
Asked if he could ever envision himself reconciling with his former GREAT WHITE bandmates, Jack said: “No way! Absolutely not. Not over my dead body. Too many things have been said, and too many lies, and just too much hurt, man. I’ve had the knife stuck in way too deep. I can forgive them, but I can’t forget. It’s like we were brothers, man, and we were there through thick and thin, and when it came down to it, no, we weren’t. It was all a big façade for the public. It’s sad; it really is. It was a just a really lousy finale for a once-great rock band.”
The entire interview is available for streaming using the audio player below (Note: The Russell chat begins around the 24-minute mark).
