GREAT WHITE Singer Breaks Silence: 'Words Cannot Express Sorrow We Feel'

GREAT WHITE frontman Jack Russell has issued a statement thanking the group's fans for their support since the tragic Rhode Island club fire on Feb. 20 that claimed the lives of nearly 100 people.

The statement reads as follows:

"Dear Friends,

"I could not keep silent for one more night. I have been quietly reading your posts for the last 6 weeks. The love, support, and encouragement that most of you have expressed to us, both on this site, and personally, has been overwhelming. Some of your posts have literally taken me through the darkest days and nights I have ever known, and I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of all of us for taking the time to let us know you are out there, encouraging us to keep doing what we do.

"Words will not now, nor will they ever, begin to express the sorrow we are all feeling not only for the loss of our Ty, but for everyone that was affected by this terrible tragedy. I just couldn't let one more day go by without saying thank you to those of you that have always been more than fans, even more than friends, more like family to all of us.

"God bless all of you, Jack Russell"
