Best-known as the singer for Great White
since its inception in 1978, Jack Russell
helped start the group in Southern California. The band had several hits and went through years of success before the '90s began to take their toll on the group. Declining sales and an apathetic attitude convinced the band to call it quits, but the death of Russell
