A foundation working to build a memorial at the site of a 2003 Rhode Island nightclub fire that killed 100 people has asked the lead singer of the band that played that night to take the foundation's name off a benefit concert he's planning.
The fire at The Station nightclub was started by pyrotechnics for the band, Great White. The 10th anniversary is Feb. 20.
Jack Russell announced Tuesday that he would play a Feb. 7 benefit for the Station Fire Memorial Foundation near Los Angeles.
The foundation learned of the show Wednesday. It says it doesn't want to be associated with it because of the animosity many survivors and families of those killed feel toward Russell.
Russell says he will give the money to a different charity.
