JEORDIE WHITE
EVERYONE WILL SUFFER NOW...

FOUR - JEORDIE WHITE

Following his leave of Marilyn Manson, Twiggy would revert to his birth name of Jeordie White as listed musician, a choice he has described as being out of respect for what the character meant to him as part of Marilyn Manson, and also to establish himself as a separate entity without the associated context of his former work. Similarly, his visual representation would undergo a more modest transformation as the trademark dresses, lipstick and dreadlocks that had developed throughout each era he was present for were lost in favour of a simpler, less extravangant look that was simply, Jeordie. As Jeordie, the works he would accomplish, and the variety of acts he would write and perform with were impressive, and perhaps wisely, very different from what he had done in Marilyn Manson. He, alongside John 5, is perhaps the only member to have left the band (besides Tim Skold, who was an accomplished musician before joining) and found extreme success of his own accord. His first music appearance outside Manson was to play two shows with Mondo Generator, Nick Olivieri's (formerly Queens Of The Stone Age) band, and then later auditioned to take the role of second guitarist in the latter named QOTSA. Queens would instead hire Troy Van Leeuwen, formerly of A Perfect Circle (curiously, a band Jeordie later joined...).

Before that however, he worked with Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme despite not entering the band, on his project Desert Sessions. He then auditioned as bass player for Metallica, and can be seen, despite once again not getting the gig, in their film Some Kind Of Monster. It was after this that he met with A Perfect Circle drummer Josh Freese, and worked on some of the final mixes of their second album Thirteenth Step. Although the band itself was something of an ensemble piece, Jeordie was announced as their bassist, and featured in the album's liner notes. He later contributed to their covers album eMOTIVE for the track People Are People (originally a hit for Depeche Mode). He was also part of their tour, even gaining the support of Manson and Dita Von Teese at one show.

After this point as A Perfect Circle changed ranks and then went on indefinite hiatus, Jeordie began working with famed producer Chris Goss on his project Goon Moon, which despite having clearly recognisable influences, is rather difficult to categorise. They have one album to date, called Licker's Last Leg, and have played numerous shows, also releasing videos and songs through MySpace and YouTube.

Perhaps the most high profile move he would make following this, was to officially join Nine Nich Nails (in 2004), the band that had originally fostered Marilyn Manson almost ten years prior. He would aid Trent Reznor with production on their "comeback" album, With Teeth, and toured for its release, and later in 2007 following the next NIN album, Year Zero.

FIVE - EVERYONE WILL SUFFER NOW...

In January 2008, soon after Marilyn Manson's 39th birthday, a statement was released announcing that Tim Skold would be ending his tenure, and that returning as chief writing partner, and as was stressed, Manson's true "Brother In Arms", would be none other than Twiggy Ramirez. Awe-inspiring photos of the pair together once again, side by side, started to leak with ravenous response at Manson resource site MansonUSA, and soon after, before the month was out, an exclusive interview (the fourth successive one in fact) conducted with Manson by the site's staff revealed details of the reunion. Amidst talk of Twiggy's dick, Evan Rachel Wood's vagina, and "crotchless wheel chairs?", Manson described the emotional process of speaking to his best friend after a rollercoaster few years for the both of them, and details of Twiggy coming back to the fold, and them collaborating once more on the remainder of The Rape Of The World tour, and then for the seventh Marilyn Manson studio album...

That interview, and their reunion, and the period leading up to, and following the release of The High End Of Low marks the point Twiggy is presently at. During press appearances for THEOL, Manson and Twiggy would each comment that due to working on the album with Chris Vrenna, the atmosphere generated in the studio reminded them of recording Antichrist Superstar, and that whilst this was not an indicator of what the record would be like, it was still going to be a "godless, unruly" record, that Twiggy likened to "shitting into someone's ribcage".

Now credited as simply "Twiggy", it is understood that whilst not a step away from his prior history with Manson, his current position is without question a different, more evolved one, as he was not only responsible for all of the guitar and bass parts on The High End Of Low, but is now the live lead guitarist for the band as well. He had played some of the lead during the end of The Rape Of The World, but his new role ushers in a concrete, transformative stage to Twiggy's undeniable position as the most significant part of Marilyn Manson besides the man himself.

It is understood that not only will he not be leaving Marilyn Manson again, but will also continue as chief musician for the band's next studio album, and any they may produce following this. Twiggy also DJs as part of Goon Moon (whch has not been placed on hiatus), and besides his work with Manson, has also recently remixed a track for his favourite band, Oasis.
