Is that true? That's a disgrace.

I just checked amazon.com to see if an album of this name is real and for sale. It is. According to amazon this album is being released against the bands wishes by their former label. Whatever the case may be, with Great White's approval or without it, to whoever came up with that title.

I hope people don't just jump to conclusions and assume the band had anything to do with the album. I saw this in the paper about 2 weeks ago, Great White had no idea this had been released.

How utterly tasteless. What a bad pun.


Just asking, they aren't by any chance covering the old "X" tune from the 80's called "Burning House of Love" are they? That was an actual song, kind of a cool video too. But of course no one knows what I'm talking about

No kidding. I don't blame the band for not wanting that released.

I do. . Never seen the video, but I've heard the song.

And according to the article, the band did do the song.

Since the article I read said it was an album of live cover songs, my guess (strictly) is that the X cover may be one of them, but I don't know for sure.
And count me in as another person who knows the song Kitten.

Angela and Hewson! I feel like an idiot but I admit I never clicked on the article since my computer was so slow. I thought that might have been it. It means something that they were doing it before the fire, but it's wrong of the record company to draw attention to the album using that name considering the tragedy. Stuff like that is usually changed, like when Skynyrd members died in a plane crash, their then current album was called "Street Survivors" and showed the band members engulfed in flames It was taken off the market and repackaged with the same pic, no fire.
