Tonight’s mystery artist says that late in life after meeting his new wife he finally had the romantic fantasy he’d always written about but had never known. Think you know who our hope filled romantic might be??

I found this lovely sentiment in a 2013 article in the Boston Globe with Great White’s Jack Russell. Jack’s life like so many others was changed on the date The Station burned. After that he suffered from persecution from the victims’ families and his own demons that kept him addicted to drugs and alcohol. In 2011 a friend died from alcohol poisoning and he turned his life around.

These days Russell claims he hasn’t had alcohol for years and that Marlboro cigarettes are his only addiction. In the interview he also talked about new wife, Heather, a 39-year-old nurse, who had stayed his side when he was so sick. He gushed that she had given new meaning to the love ballads he had written back in the 1980s.

“The songs I wrote were really about this fantasy world that I never knew existed,’’ Russell said. “I have that now.’’

Jack is still out performing in the US as Jack Russell's Great White
