On May 13, former GREAT WHITE and current JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE singer Jack Russell was interviewed on the “Music Mania” podcast.
Russell talked about a variety of topics including the death of original WARRANT singer Jani Lane in 2011 and if it motivated him to get clean:

Jack: “Yeah, but, unfortunately, at the time, it wasn’t enough. I mean, it was for a while, but then my disease started going, ‘Well, you’re not Jani Lane. No doctor’s ever told you that, so you keep on drinking.’ And I’d binge for a while, and I’d sober up. The last time I did that was, like, eight months ago; I went on a binge and I drank, like, Mai Tais in, like, twenty minutes. And I kept falling off the bar stool. [And they told me], ‘Hey, dude, we love you here, but you’ve gotta go. Or else we’ll call the cops.’ So Don Dokken, who was with me, took me to my boat and dropped me off. And my wife was just furious. And she put me in bed, and the next morning I wouldn’t wake up… I was in a coma eight months ago from drinking too much. The doctor told me when I woke up, ‘If you drink again, your liver’s gonna shut down and you’re gonna die.’ And I went, ‘Okay.’ So I’m not gonna take the chance. I’m doing good right now. My body’s in great shape. I’ve been working out. I’ve been running. I’ve been… stuff I thought I could never do again after all my accidents. I just took care of myself, got some muscle on me, and I’m back on stage doing what I used to do. It’s great.
