Great White release live video for “Twice Shy” with new singer Mitch Malloy
Great White featuring new singer Mitch Malloy have released a live video of them performing “Twice Shy” at the 2018 Kentucky State Fair in Kentucky, USA.
Lead guitarist Mark Kendall had previously stated in an interview with Ron Keel for KBACK Radio that the group was planning on releasing a “proper” video to “introduce” Malloy.
Great White‘s “Bio” on their Facebook page states in part (with slight edits):
“Changes? Yeah, they’ve had ‘em. Fallen off the path? Guilty. Slowed down? No way. Never. Don’t ever count these guys out of the game. For the first time in its 36-year history, Grammy nominated hard rock band legends, Great White takes on its third frontman. The band is ready for what lies ahead in 2018, with a respectful nod to the past forging its tried-and-true mantra: these songs are bigger than any one member.
“Mitch Malloy is the lead singer of Great White. He’s an incredible singer, artist, songwriter and engineer,” lead guitarist, Mark Kendall said. “We’re beyond excited to stretch our musical muscles with a fresh, new take on Great White’s catalog of hits.”….
In 1996, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Van Halen, asked Malloy to take the reigns as its singer. Although Malloy didn’t take the gig, he further established his reputation as a universally- respected frontman. He’s thrilled to be a part of Great White. He’s not trying to be a “clone” of previous singers Jack Rusell and Terry Ilous.
“I have to represent this music honorably,” Malloy said. “I respect what has come before me, and have to remind fans of where they were when they first heard these songs. I also have to be myself at the same time. When I first heard my own voice with Great White’s music, I knew something special was going on.”
Lardie, praised Malloy for his musical chops and reputation.
“We had an immediate rapport with Mitch,” Lardie said. “I’m positive the fans will embrace Mitch and continue to support Great White. This music is bigger than any one person.”
“We’re ready to rock with Mitch,” Desbrow added. “2018 and beyond still has a lot in store for Great White. Don’t ever count us down and out. It feels like we’re just getting started.”
Great White is focused on its newest journey with Malloy. They plan on returning to the studio and will update fans as soon as they can.”
