Jeordie White was born June 20th, 1971 in New Jersey and at some point in his childhood he moved to Florida. At 15 he became a member of Ft. Lauderdale's The Ethiopians, a speed metal cover band which broke up by his senior year of high school. He then played in Amboog-A-Lard from 1989-1994, starting out on guitar and later moving on to bass. He met Brian Warner (later known as Marilyn Manson) while working at a used record store. The two became friends and Jeordie eventually left Amboog-A-Lard to become the bassist for Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids, as they were then known. He adopted the stage name "Twiggy Ramirez" and became a key member of the band, shaping both the band's music and their image. In 2002, he amicably split from the band, eager to explore new creative avenues. Around this time he performed two live shows with Mondo Generator, performed on The Desert Sessions 9 & 10, and auditioned for both Queens of the Stone Age and Metallica. In 2003, he joined A Perfect Circle just in time to wrap up recording and play bass on "Thirteenth Step." After their world tour ended in 2004, the band went on hiatus and Jeordie contributed to Melissa Auf Der Maur's self-title solo debut. In 2005 he joined Nine Inch Nails for their "With Teeth" tour and again in 2007 for "Year Zero." 2005 saw the debut of Goon Moon with the release of "I Got a Brand New Egg-Layin' Machine" and in May 2007 the full-length "Licker's Last Leg" was released. In January of 2008, it was announced that Jeordie would be joining Manson for his "Rape the World" tour and that the two have plans of recording together in the near future. Fans of Goon Moon have been assured that the project is still alive and well and look forward to more Goon Moon in 2008.
