In a recent interview with Waste Some Time With Jason Green, drummer Audie Desbrow talked about why he didn’t think a Great White reunion was possible. As transcribed by Blabbermouth, he said:
“It just couldn’t physically be possible, I think… And there’s just so much damage, verbal damage, e-mails to us from him that nobody will ever know what they were. And they’re pretty bad. It’s kind of beyond the ruin. I don’t know how to describe it.”
His next words did not make the fans happy. He goes:
“But, yeah, I can’t see that happening, unfortunately, I guess, for a lot of diehard fans. I’m sure there might be some fans who’d love to see us with Jack one time or whatever. But I just couldn’t [see it happening].”
Although he left the band in 2011 due to medical reasons, in 2012 he sued the band for using the name Great White. The remaining band members also sued Russell, stating that he had damaged the band’s reputation. After the lawsuit was over, in 2013, Russell continued the band under the name Jack Russell’s Great White, while the remaining members continued as Great White.
A few months earlier, Great White officially named Brett Carlisle as the new lead singer. Carlisle joins the band as the replacement for Freeman, who sang for the band for only five months.
