Halfway Jam is just hours away and in preparation, we're talking with all the headliners of the weekend, to get a feel for what's in store. Taking the stage on Friday night is Jack Russell's Great White, featuring founding member Jack Russell.

A killer blues rock band that hit it big with Once Bitten, Twice Shy and Rock Me at the end of the 80's, Jack has been working and touring off and on since then as a solo act and collaborating with other great artists from the same era.

Now, as he fights a legal battle with another band, trying to purloin the Great White name, he has put together a stellar group of musicians that have played in Great White. The return of Tony Montana, the original bass player, heralds a new era and the possibility of new music from the band. I had the chance to chat with Jack about the new /old band, the chance for new music and what's in store for us during this tour.
