Jeordie White

An American musician, and is currently a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist for Goon Moon. He was previously the bassist for A Perfect Circle and Nine Inch Nails.

He is also the long-time bassist/guitarist for Marilyn Manson. He has also contributed to some of the Desert Sessions recordings.

Though born in New Jersey, he moved to Florida sometime during his childhood where by his own admission he grew up on "Star Wars and heavy metal".

Influenced by the likes of Motley Crue, Van Halen and Iron Maiden, he first picked up a guitar at the age of 13.

Although a New Jersey native, he spent the better portion of his youth in the Ft. Lauderdale area, where he quickly embraced South Florida's growing music scene and, by age 15, had joined his first band, The Ethiopians.

Early in his career, White was in a speed metal cover band called The Ethiopians covering songs such as Metallica's "Trapped Under Ice". Between 1989 and 1993 White played rhythm guitar, bass and provided backing vocals for Amboog-a-Lard.

White met Marilyn Manson in the late 80's while working in a used records store in Broward Mall, Ft. Lauderdale.

In March 1993, White took part in Manson's side project Mrs. Scabtree and shared vocal duties with then girlfriend Jessicka.

Jeordie did not join Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids until Gidget Gein was ejected from the band by the manager in December 1993.

After departing the band, he played two live shows with California punk metal band Mondo Generator, and auditioned for the role of second guitar in Queens of the Stone Age, which he lost to Troy Van Leeuwen of A Perfect Circle.

White has composed for an range of artists from fictional band Steel Dragon to Bif Naked to his namesake, model Twiggy Lawson with whom he recorded and produced a duet.

On January 9, 2008 Marilyn Manson posted a bulletin on MySpace confirming that Tim Skold was leaving Marilyn Manson and that Twiggy Ramirez had rejoined the band in his place. This has also been confirmed on official Marilyn Manson website.

He is currently touring with Manson as the band's new guitarist in support of their seventh studio album. However, Twiggy is still a member of Goon Moon.
