Warrant And Great White Stars Form Beatles Tribute Group


July 10, 2008

Great White stars Jack Russell and Michael Lardie have teamed up with Warrant star Jani Lane to form a new all-star Beatles tribute group.

The rockers – all huge fans of the Fab Four – are planning to record an album of Beatles covers and then tour.

Russell says, “I think it’ll be a lot of fun. The Beatles are definitely the reason I got into music. This is just another way for us to express our gratitude and to show where we come from. I was gonna be an archaeologist and then I heard the Beatles’ Help! album and I was like, ‘That’s it. I wanna be a rock star now.'”

And the Great White frontman believes the combination of the Beatles and 1980s rockers will prove to be a winning ticket: “We’re a bunch of 80s rockers and I think that’s gonna make a difference. I think that’ll make us stand out a little bit from all the other Beatles tribute acts. People aren’t gonna expect a lot from us, but there’s a lot of great music in us. I think we’re gonna call ourselves The Revolution. We’re just kicking about names right now, and that’s something we thought of off the top of our heads.”
