Biography

Doogie White (born March 7, 1960[1], Motherwell), is a Scottish rock vocalist, who has sung for Sack Trick, Midnight Blue, Praying Mantis, Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen and Cornerstone.

Dougie formed La Paz in 1984, playing around Scotland for four years, before in 1988 joining melodic rock combo Midnight Blue, cutting one eponymous LP of AOR (released on Zero records exclusively in Japan.)

A trip to Japan in 1991 singing with Praying Mantis in a NWOBHM revival tour followed.

After a demo tape was forwarded to Ritchie’s management a few years earlier White was asked to audition for Rainbow, subsequently joining the band in 1994. He had also auditioned for metal band Pink Cream 69 and Iron Maiden, only losing out to Wolfsbane’s Blaze Bayley.

Just before the Rainbow job Dougie had been busy laying down tracks with Cozy Powell and Neil Murray for a solo Powell project.

After Rainbow folded Dougie worked with former Midnight Blue guitarist Alex Dickson with a view to securing a solo deal. Dougie was also heard singing on recent ‘Action Man’ toy adverts!

Sessions on several tribute releases were next, the Whitesnake tribute ‘Snakebites’, and several tracks included on ‘666-Number of the Beast’ a two-volume tribute to Iron Maiden out on Deadline. Dougie also guested on Nikolo Kotzev’s conceptual ‘Nostradamus’ 2001 release.
