Useless Great White trivia
Yep, it's pretty useless. xD


The only Great White music video that does not feature a bass player is "Big Goodbye". Dave "The Beast" Spitz played bass on the track but wasn't in the video and neither was their touring bassist at the time, Teddy Cook.

The first half of the Shot in the Dark album has no keyboards (as far as I can tell), whereas the second half has keyboards on every song.

The longest song Great White has recorded and officially released (that the band wrote) is "Love Is a Lie".

The longest song Great White has recorded and officially released (that the band covered) is "Red House" by Jimi Hendrix.

The longest song Great White has recorded and unofficially released is a demo version of their song "Sister Mary", that murders the final version of the song.

The only album cover of theirs that does not have the album title on the cover is Can't Get There From Here.

Every song on Psycho City, besides "I Want You" is at least five minutes long.

Michael Lardie is the only member of the band with no facial hair.

Some Great White songs that don't have any drumming involved are "In the Tradition", "Mother's Eyes", and "She Only".

The only Great White albums with no cover songs associated are Once Bitten and Elation.

Michael Lardie's first writing is on "What Do You Do".

Audie Desbrow's first writing credit is on "Fast Road".

None of the band's bass players have played bass on more than three studio albums. Technically, you if you were to include the EP Out of the Night, you could say that Lorne Black played on four albums, but otherwise it's three.

Bass players:
Lorne Black - Great White, Shot In the Dark, Once Bitten
Tony Montana - ...Twice Shy, Recover, Hooked
Dave "The Beast" Spitz - Psycho City, Let It Rock
Teddy Cook - Sail Away
Sean McNabb - Can't Get There From Here, Back to the Rhythm
Scott Snyder - Rising, Elation

Songs that have sitar in them: "Sail Away" and "Danger Zone"

The only Great White song to have the flute in it: "Where Is the Love"

Songs that have banjo in them: "Livin' In the USA" and "Man in the Sky"

"Maybe Someday" and "Was It The Night" sound similar.

All the band members at the time (Jack Russell, Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie, Audie Desbrow, and Teddy Cook) are credited with writing "A Short Overture" but it's just a thirty second piano solo by Michael.
