What did you guys think about Great White?

Postby JR97 » Wed May 28, 2008 2:45 pm

I've been going back through all my 80's stuff now that I'm joining an 80's type band.

One band that I totally forgot about but totally loved at the time was Great White. I had their first albums/cassettes but wasn't too enamored with Twice Shy and pretty much ditched them. But everthing up to that point I thought was "most excellent". I think Mark Kendell was so under rated. A very bluesy player that got overlooked because he wasn't flashy.

For those not familiar, youtube Lady Red Light, Rock Me, and House of Broken Love.

Absolutely agree with that statement.

I liked a few of their songs, and I saw them live a couple of times before the fire (with Kendall and without) when they were opening up for Dokken.

Not bad, not great, just sort of there...

Good band that had some OK tunes and fine ass chicks in their videos. I felt really bad for them when that hole Stationhouse fire went down. Because Jack Russel always seemed like a dude who just liked to rock and have a good time. I imagine they wake up everyday and have to live with what happened that night.

One of my bands is opening for Great White this August in Phoenix. I always liked the group, very cool bluesy rock/metal. I always thought if you liked Great White you would love Badlands!

And in conlusion, I'd like to herald the coming together of our most distinguished and agreeable patrons and in the honor of all that is good and decent, shall we not raise our cups in the dancing twilight of the dusky predawn to the Great White Nor. . . potato chip fart. A-hem! Uhh, what? O, I'm just-uhh-going-Oh, man! :lol:
I got off at "totally forgot" where Great White once was, JR. No hard feelings. But, who could forget that fat girls at the warehouse video? :roll:
Everyone will love you, just as long as you are a shooting star.

Yep - me, too.

I always liked Mark Kendall's playing, but he annoyed me by never taking those shades off E V E R. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of him without them on.

My favorite cd of theirs (only have two) is Great Zeppelin, their tribute. They do a mean Zep imitation :P
