    yeah, heard about this on the radio this morning. didn`t know it was great white that were involved. in fact i didn`t know they were still on the go.
    they were an`80s american metal band. they weren`t really very good back then, so presume they haven`t improved.
    what a tragedy though. there was one person reported dead this morning, and reading the link it has risen to ten.

    The best thing about Great White was their singer's name: Jack Russell. He looked as rough as a dog too.

    I think they had a big US hit with a track called 'Face The Day'.

    I also saw two of the band in Camden Market once. They both had Great White jackets on, hmm.

    I saw Great White once, they were supporting Alice Cooper on the "Trash" tour, they weren't that bad really. Didnt know that they were still going either, or that they were the band involved in this incident.

    i saw great white on the trash tour too, and i've always liked the band. in fact i have all but one of their albums, for which i currently have a bid on ebay. someone said one of the band was missing, does anyone know who? i know it wasn't jack russell as he was on the news talking. there have been so many tragedies at rock shows over the years, makes me worry any time i'm near the front, not the way to be feeling during a show

    The death toll is up to 96. Don't be suprised if it goes over 100. Smoke inhalation patients often expire from pnummonia days later and they are many hospitalized for that, not to mention the victims with massive burns who will be prone to massive infections.

    One of Great White's guitar players is missing. Their sound board operator's life is in peril with masive burns. This is proably the end of GW. Looks like they're gonna bear some of the blame.

    saying it was stupid to use fireworks in a venue that small would be a massive understatment. I just can't believe how quickly the place went up though... it was like it was soaked in petrol or something.

    I think it was just the lead singer for Great White, and his new band. (no idea what they are called though)

    Well, it would be fairly disgraceful for them to continue after this...
