Show Preview/Interview Great White/Michael Lardie interview

Celebrating over 30 years of rock and roll success, Great White returns to the Motor City as part of the 2013 Chevrolet Rockin’ on the Riverfront summer concert series. Riding high on the success of their 12th studio album "Elation" which performed well on music charts around the world, they bring their timeless rock and roll sound back to the Detroit for a FREE concert.

Featuring founder Mark Kendall (guitar), and 28-year-veterans Michael Lardie (guitar, keyboards) and Audie Desbrow (drums), they are joined by lead singer Terry Ilous and bassist Scott Snyder. Great White emerged unscathed from late 2011 band member changes. Best known for the 1989 smash “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Great White’s worldwide sales are approaching 10 million. Their song arsenal also includes “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love,” “The Angel Song,” “Mistabone” and more!

Elation is just the recording of what live audiences will see and hear as a band with a new mission. “This is a new birth of the band,” Desbrow says. “I wanted to call the album ‘Tabula Rasa’ which means rebirth, but we went for ‘Elation’ because of the euphoria in the atmosphere. It’s a fresh and healthier start than ever before. I’m like a kid in a candy store.”

Guitarist, keyboardist and producer Michael  Lardie spent 15 minutes on the phone with me before their gig in New Jersey to discuss all things Great White.
