Great White Says "You Can't Blame A Song For The Fire"

(BW&BK) It's been over four years since rock band GREAT WHITE performed the song 'Desert Moon' for an audience, but that could soon change. The 1980s hard rock band known for songs like 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy', 'Rock Me' and 'Save Your Love' is also known for a song interrupted February 20th, 2003, by a fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, R.I. The fire killed 100 people and injured about 200.

Great White lead singer Jack Russell, 46, said the song hasn't been played since, but admits he has been toying with the idea of performing it again. He's just not ready yet.

"I love the song and people love to hear it," said Russell, who escaped The Station unharmed but whose band has struggled with legal issues since the fire that also killed Ty Longley, the band's guitarist at the time. "You can't blame a song for the fire. If (the fire happened during) 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' . . . then what? It wasn't the song's fault." [obviously Jack Russell didn't read the Russian study from the previous story] - more on this story
