Twiggy Ramirez

Jeordie White (born June 20, 1971), better known by his former pseudonym Twiggy Ramirez, was the bassist for Marilyn Manson from 1990 until 2002 (at which point he abandoned the pseudonym). A Florida native, White grew up on Star Wars and heavy metal. His long time musical partnership and friendship with Manson was severed on May 29, 2002, when he was fired, or quit the band, depending on your source. 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. Ironically, several months later, White would join 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.
