In December 2011, Jack Russell’s Great White first bared its teeth. Since its inception, the front man welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana-this time as a guitar player and keyboardist-lead guitarist Robby Lochner, bassist Chris Tristam and drummer Dicki Fliszar. Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum hard rock entity’s storied origins, Jack Russell set his sights on the future.
The release of “Hart Habit” was in the style of the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell a rock icon in the first place. The song is taken from the band’s studio album The Gauntlet.
