Biography

Described as a “bassist with a guitarist’s attitude”, musician/song-writer Jeordie White has developed a style and stage presence all his own. One of the more colorful and versatile players on the scene today, he first picked up a guitar at the age of 13, influenced by 80’s icons Mötley Crüe, Twisted Sister, Van Halen, and Iron Maiden. Growing up in South Florida, he quickly immersed himself in the local music scene and by age 15, had joined his first band, The Ethiopians.

By the time he was a high school senior, The Ethiopians had gone their separate ways. Soon after, he landed a gig with local thrash/hard alternative favorites, Amboog-a-Lard, first playing guitar and later switching to bass. The band’s huge popularity on the South Florida club circuit allowed them opportunities to share the stage with the likes of Anthrax, Exodus, The Ramones, Savatage, and Saigon Kick. In June of 1992, Amboog-A-Lard captured awards in five categories at the 1st Annual South Florida Slammie Awards, with White himself taking home the award for Best Rhythm Guitarist. It was with the band’s 1993 release, A New Hope, that Jeordie’s talents as a songwriter first became evident, as he single-handedly wrote the music for the album’s title track, as well as “Medicine Man”, “A Matter Of Honor”, and “Do Or Do Not.”

It was during this time that he met Brian Warner, frontman of local rivals Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids.
