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…”

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of Great White’s live album “30 Years – Live From the Sunset Strip” on February 22nd in Europe and February 26th in North America. The label issued the following statement:

“To mark its 30th Anniversary live on March 22nd, 2012, Greaet White celebrated the only logical way – on stage. In a nod to its early days, Great White returned to the infamous Sunset Strip, where a storied past of music’s biggest fans are fused into the walls of the Key Club. Great White delivered its entire repertoire to a packed house, pining for the band’s raw energy and cheering its illustrious history track after track.

“The Southern California blues hard rock band debuted with a Don Dokken / Michael Wagener produced EP in 1983 and later on were signed by EMI for 1984’s self-titled debut album. Since then Great White has achieved worldwide success, encompassing sales of over six million records. They received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy’ and earned a double platinum certification for the album ‘…Twice Shy.’

“It’s the soulful, blues-based signature sound that turned songs like ‘Face The Day,’ ‘Rock Me,’ and ‘Save Your Love’ into international hits. The late 80′s were boom years for the band, marked by non-stop touring with some of the biggest bands of the era including stints in Europe and Japan. Great White recorded two more albums for Capitol — ‘Hooked,’ which was certified gold and ‘Psycho City.’

“With a line up featuring Co-Founder Mark Kendall, Audie Desbrow, Michael Lardie Scott Snyder and new singer Terry Ilous (former XYZ), a natural frontman blessed with bluesy-heritage rock tone, Ilous fits the band like a glove. Great White’s biting guitar riffs, contagious rhythm section and newfound energy is ready to honor its past and create the next chapter. 30th Anniversary Live is just one night – but the music is timeless.”
