On Feb. 20, 2003, during a Great White show at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, 100 people lost their lives and over 200 were injured in a fire caused by the band's pyrotechnic display.
Great White's most recent reunion ended with original singer Jack Russell out of the lineup and fighting for the right to use the band's name -- a fight that's now ended in what looks like a rock 'n' roll draw.
Great White's ever-shifting lineup is too complicated for all but the most ardent fans of the band -- which now includes two separate touring incarnations and the ever-present threat of a lawsuit. But no matter who's in the group, one thing remains the same: The shadow cast by the fire that claimed the lives of 100 people at a Great White show on Feb. 20, 2003.
Next February will make 10 years since a fire at a Great White show at the Station Nightclub in Rhode Island claimed 100 lives. Co-founder and guitarist Mark Kendall says his relationship with the victims families is what's helped him through the tragedy.
Great White has seen more pain than most Rock Bands. The unfortunate Rhode Island Nightclub Fire in 2003 that killed 100 people including guitarist Ty Longley and injured another 200, has left an indelible scar on the band and lead singer Jack Russell. Great White paid out $1 Million to victim's families, and their former manager and the club's owner are still serving jail time for the incident. But the band has truly risen from the ashes of that tragic night and play a show at Club Infinity on June 4.
