Jack Russell (born December 5, 1960, Montebello, California), is an American rock vocalist. He is best known for being a founding member of the American hard rock band Great White. [http://www.mistabone.com]


Russell grew up with influences such as Robert Plant and Steven Tyler, and became a vocalist for many bands in high school and later on. He met Mark Kendall in a concert and began plans to form a band called Dante Fox. Russell and Kendall decided to change their name of the band to Great White because their favorite pastime is shark fishing. Russell has been in the band from 1981 to the present day, except for taking three years off from 1996 to 1999 to record and release a solo album, entitled "Shelter Me".
