GREAT WHITE took a different approach for their video “Shotgun Willie’s.” More specifically, they let their audience helm the director’s chair. Filmed over the course of March’s Monsters of Rock Cruise, where GREAT WHITE headlined the floating rock festival, the video encapsulates the vessel’s high energy and the five-piece band’s bond.
“Shotgun Willie’s,” the fourth single off of Elation (Frontiers Records), is currently climbing the classic rock radio chart. GREAT WHITE announced via its website and social networking pages they would be utilizing fan driven video to create the video.
“We discovered after looking at the footage that not only do we look like we are having a blast,” guitarist Michael Lardie said. “But that our fans connected to our music in ways that we can’t always see from the stage under the lights. Some of the video is very much a party atmosphere, but this is also a video scrapbook of people that have never stopped loving our music and continue to be a part of the GREAT WHITE family.”
GREAT WHITE gives special thanks to all the fans that participated and contributed. They would like to give additional recognition to Harlan Hendrickson, Brigette Olender, Juan Martin Aboud, Karl Wickman, Angie Perkins, Chris Parker, Dave Stabley, Lee Russell, Raoul Pacino, Larry Morand, Olga and Phillip The Shark and Lucky Keller. The video was edited by Keith “Mud Shark” Roberts.
