Original GREAT WHITE bassist Lorne Black has died. He appeared on the band’s 1984 self-titled debut, 1986’s “Shot In The Dark” and 1987’s “Once Bitten…”.

Original GREAT WHITE singer Jack Russell, who is currently touring with a version of the band calling itself JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE, has posted the following statement: “It is with great sadness that we have been informed of the passing of Lorne Black yesterday [Friday, September 27]! Our hearts go out to his family, friends and fans.

Lorne was a huge part of the first incarnation of GREAT WHITE! May he rest in peace.”

Added GREAT WHITE guitarist Mark Kendall: “I saw [Lorne‘s] cousin Robert a few months ago and we were in touch. Robert told me Lorne wasn’t too good then.

“I lost Robert‘s number when I changed phones, which bums me out. He used to work for us.

“I loved Lorne and I am truly sad to get this news. I know he has battle demons for along time and I am so sad to hear of his passing.

“RIP, my friend…”

PUSCIFER answers the enduring question of what exactly Puscifer is with a new DVD release titled “What Is…”, which is due on November 26 via Puscifer Entertainment.

The two-hour sketch comedy show-meets-concert film builds upon and punctuates the multimedia format of the band’s live performances with skits from the stable of PUSCIFER characters such as Billy D, Hildy and Major Douche woven into the performance footage of the Maynard James Keenan-led (TOOL, A PERFECT CIRCLE) quintet.

“Being surrounded by so many talented and creative people is an endless source of inspiration,” explains Keenan. “This film only scratches the surface of how deep our proverbial rabbit hole goes. ‘What Is… Puscifer’ is meant to conjure as many questions as it answers.” An accompanying soundtrack will be released simultaneously.

PUSCIFER‘s concerts have been praised for their out-of-the-box take on what a live performance can be, with the Orange County Register saying “the production… matters as much as the music” and describing the event as “a thought-provoking, senses-jabbing statement on a variety of topics.” The Dallas Morning News called the evening “an idiosyncratic experience” while the Austin Chronicle referred to the concert as a “multimedia prop dramedy.”

In stores August 27 is “All Re-Mixed Up”, a track-for-track remix album of the band’s sophomore release “Conditions Of My Parole”. The twelve-song Remixers include Sir Mix-A-Lot, PALMS, Five Knives and Alain Johannes.

Also coming from PUSCIFER this fall is a limited-edition Black Friday (November 29) release titled “Puscifer’s 8-Ball Bail Bonds – The Berger Barns Live In Phoenix”. The nine-song live album will be available on red vinyl at independent record stores nationwide.
