    WEST WARWICK, RI - MAY 10: Crosses are stand at the site of the Station nightclub fire May 10, 2006 in West Warwick, Rhode Island.

    The lead singer for the band playing the night 100 people died in a 2003 nightclub fire in Rhode Island says he's making a documentary that will give him a chance to apologize and tell his side of the story.

    Jack Russell of Great White told an Oregon radio station last week that the fire was a horrible accident, and said he feels survivors' guilt.

    The blaze started when Great White's pyrotechnics set fire to flammable foam inside The Station nightclub in West Warwick.

    Russell's comments angered Jody King, whose brother was killed. King says Russell is ruining the positive strides made in Rhode Island to heal since the fire.

    Russell was not charged in the blaze. His tour manager and the brothers who owned the club struck plea deals.
