Russell Sorry About Accusing Former Great White/Guns N' Roses Manager

(Classic Rock) Jack Russell has apologised to former Great White manager Alan Niven after he accused the businessman of sharp practise in a recent interview.

The singer said Niven also known for setting Guns n'Roses and Motley Crue on the road to stardom took a songwriter's cut for material he helped write, but then subjected band members's cuts to his management commission fee.

The move wouldn't have been illegal but it's not even true, Russell has since discovered. The singer tells BraveWords: "I recently did an interview and I made a comment about our first manager Alan Niven. In the interview I said something to the effect of: 'When Alan and myself of Mark or Michael wrote songs together he would hake half of the publishing as an outside writer, then he would commission our percentage.'

"This information came to the band and myself after we parted ways with Alan, from a person we felt was reliable. I have since found that this is not correct."
