jackRussell Great White and co-founding member/original lead singer Jack Russell have announced that they have entered into an agreement settling their pending litigation over the “Great White” name.

In March, 2012, Russell sued his former band-mates Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Audie Desbrow over their continuing use of “Great White” after Russell had taken a leave of absence from the band for medical reasons. The band countersued, and the parties have been involved in contentious litigation for the last year. After three days of closed-door mediation before U.S. Magistrate Judge Carla Woehrle, the parties reached a comprehensive agreement. While many of the terms of the agreement will remain confidential, it can be revealed that, going forward, the current Great White band will continue to use the name “Great White”‘ and Russell will perform under the name “Jack Russell’s Great White.”

Jack Russell’s Great White has hit the high seas to embark in a two month two moth voyage across the Nation until early Fall.

Multi-Platinum original singer of Great White still brings it to the stage belting out all the original beloved songs that made the band take a place in rock history. Russell will be performing all their greatest hits from Save All Your Love, One Bitten Twice Shy, Rock Me and more.

    So nothing changed.
    Same 2 bands, same names they’ve each been using.

    Can’t wait for Queensryche, and Geoff Tate’s Queensryche.

    Why would anyone care about any GREAT WHITE? They have 1 cover song and hearing their name just drums up tragedy. It s over and it never was there to begin with. Here s an original idea write a sex, drugs and rock n roll memoir. We didn’t t need 2 L A Guns, 2 ASIA s, certainly not 2 Queensryches and God help us 2 Great Whites. Be grateful ONCE BITTEN pops up on compilation albums from time to time. How ’bout 2 Green Jellys, 2 Slades, 2 Adler s Appetites, 2 Lizzy Bordens, 2 Peter Chriss es, 2 Iron Butterflies, 2 Paul Di Annos, 2 Loudnesses, 2 KATT s, 4 Mercyful Fates, 15 King Diamonds, 30 Neil Diamonds, and 3,566,789,324 Lemmy s? ANYONE NAMED GREAT WHITE PLEASE JUST STAY THE F@#K HOME.

    Imagine breakfast at some town diner. HEY WHICH GREAT WHITE IS PLAYING THE BOWLING ALLEY 2NITE? I M ONLY GOING IF IT S JACK RUSSELLS? I M ONLY GOING IF IT S GREAT DANE S? I M ONLY GOING IF IT S BULL TERRIER S? Who cares? We need 2 Great White s like we need more conflict in the middle east. Like Kenny Rogers needs more plastic surgery. I d rather watch a BEER MONEY marathon than see GREAT F@#KING WHITE.

    GREAT WHITE s music was the original score for SCHINDLER S LIST, but the actual survivors found it overly depressing. HOSTEL 4 will be using G W music in a torture chamber. How ’bout 2. KINGDOM COME s, 2 THOMPSON TWINS, 4 LITA FORD s, 9 Kevin Dubrow tribute bands ( 4 of which refuse to play songs off METAL HEALTH cause it s too commercial), 2 EUROPE s, 2 BLACKMORE S NIGHT s, and 2 TOAD THE WET SPROCKETT s.
