Jack Russell’s Great White Announce ‘High Seas World Tour’
January 18, 2012
Starting on March 1, 2012 in St. Petersburg Florida, Captain Jack Russell and his crew, Matthew Johnson (guitar), Robby Lochner (guitar), Dario Seixas (bass) and Derrick Pontier (drums) will set sail on worldwide tour. So raise the colors, sharpen your swords, load your muskets, run out the guns, and prepare to board.
Jack Russell debuted his new band on January 14th in Redondo Beach, California. In Decemeber, 2011, Russell heralded his return by saying, “I am feeling better than ever, despite any rumors you may hear to the contrary. Unfortunately, and as confusing as it will be, my former bandmates and their manager have decided to continue to tour next year under the name I created, Great White. I will be touring under the name Great White featuring Jack Russell, to try avoid any confusion. So now the true fans will know the difference.”
His former bandmates quickly shot back with, “Since Jack’s departure in August 2010, Great White has performed almost 100 concerts. We’ve had no shortened sets, cancellations or song choice limitations due to vocal issues. In this struggling economy, fans need and deserve more — not less. We owe it to our fans and the promoters to not to allow Jack Russell and some garage band to hurt Great White’s classic rock legacy and bright future. Jack Russell does not have the right to start his own Great White or use the name without our names in the lineup. We will litigate any promoter that books ‘Jack Russell’s Great White’ or uses any logo featuring the name Great White.”
Jack Russell countered by retaining the services of The Law Offices of Michael Kelly to protect his rights to make his living and play under the band’s name that he founded in 1978. Mr. Kelly has represented high profile rock stars in disputes for more than 35 years.
