Jack Russell has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in hard rock history, heard on such classics as “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” “Rock Me” and “Save Your Love.” The inimitable vocalist and founding member of ‘80s metal legends Great White, Jack joins Big Blend Radio to discuss his newly reissued 1996 debut solo album, Shelter Me.

The album, released after a decade’s worth of blockbuster albums for Capital Records, finds the hard-living singer in fine form, belting out both ballads and rockers with gusto to spare. Musically, the album is right in line with GW’s brand of Zeppelin-inspired blues rock with stellar guitar work from Matthew Johnson and Michael Lardie, as well as a rhythm section that includes iconic bassist Tim Bogert (Jeff Beck / Vanilla Fudge) and drummer Myron Grombacher.
