The tension continued to rise in the legal dispute over the name Great White this week when frontman Jack Russell fired back at guitarist Mark Kendall for comments suggesting Russell was still using drugs regularly. Kendall made the disparraging comments in a recent interview, and Russell responded on his Facebook page when a friend showed him the interview. Below is Russell's message:
"A friend of mine just showed me an interview with my former guitarist Mark Kendall [of Great White]. In this interview, he insinuates and/or alleges that I am not sober. Ordinarily I do not let such idiotic and slanderous comments bother me, as I must consider the source, but at this point I have had enough! "My A.A. sponsor, who has been sober for twenty six years, will verify along with anyone else in my life that I AM SOBER. I will take my one-year cake and coin on August 10th. "[Addressing Kendall directly] Do me a favor, worry about your own sobriety and quit taking cheap pot shots at me in the press while acting like a 'concerned old friend.' "Remember, Mark, you were one of my dear old friends who never even called me once while I was in a coma for five days in the hospital. So for you to come off now like you are seriously concerned about my welfare is insulting. You are not fooling anyone, certainly not me. "I wish you would stop 'wishing me nothing but the best' after doing your best to throw me under the bus. "I propose from now on, if we don't have anything good to say about each other, let's just not say anything at all."
