 Twiggy Ramirez, circa 'Mechanical Animals'

Jeordie Osborne White (born June 20, 1971), better known by his former pseudonym Twiggy Ramirez, is a musician and currently the bassist for Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle. White is perhaps most popular for his previous role as the bassist for Marilyn Manson (after which point he abandoned the pseudonym). A New Jersey native, he moved to Florida, where he grew up on Star Wars and heavy metal. White ended his long time musical partnership with Manson on May 29, 2002. It has been said that White quit the band in order to preserve his friendship with Manson rather than quarrel over the band's creative direction. 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. He also auditioned for a spot in Metallica, where he is briefly seen in their documentary, Some Kind of Monster. Several months later, White joined A Perfect Circle, the project of Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and former Nine Inch Nails guitar tech Billy Howerdel as a full member of the band on bass guitar. White later joined Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme on the ninth and tenth volumes of Homme's annual drug-induced communal project The Desert Sessions.

White assisted in the production of Nine Inch Nails' album, With Teeth, and he currently is touring with them to support the album. Jeordie also has his own project with desert-mainstay Chris Goss called Goon Moon. Guitarist Dave Catching is also involved along with Hella drummer Zach Hill.

 Jeordie White, in A Perfect Circle


Jeordie White wrote the song "Little Sister" for Queens of the Stone Age.

White was previously a guitarist of Fort Lauderdale, FL thrash metal band Amboog-a-lard. He is featured on their debut album and played a number of live shows, leaving the band in 1993. Amboog-a-lard's music and White's appearance while in the band are quite unlike that of his time in Marilyn Manson.

While in Marilyn Manson, White played a four string Gibson Thunderbird IV Reverse bass. He often played the vintage basses of other famous rock bassists that had been given to him by them. An example of this can be see in the videos for "The Dope Show" and "Coma White"; the bass White is playing is actually one that belonged to Kiss bassist Gene Simmons This was the Gibson RD Artist, in black, which was made throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

When White performed as Twiggy in Marilyn Manson his hair was usually mistaken to be dreadlocks. In reality, Twiggy's hairstyle was created by tiny braids, which he would often remove after concert tours. Using nothing but braids and hairspray to obtain his now famous gothic do, White would sometimes spend a couple of hours before a show or photo shoot messing his braids up and spraying them into place, sometimes including hair elastics. During Mechanical Animals, famed Hollywood hairstylist Alex Dizon gave White the uniquely feminine style pictured in the photo above.

White has been romantically linked to several famous women in music such as, Courtney Love from Hole, Sean Yseult from White Zombie, Donita Sparks from L7, and long time girlfriend Jessicka of Jack Off Jill / Scarling. fame.

White has stated in interviews, that, since his departure from Marilyn Manson, he prefers not to be called Twiggy.
