      White met Marilyn Manson in the early 1990's while working in a used records store in Broward Mall, Ft. Lauderdale.

Jeordie did not join Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids until Gidget Gein was ejected from the band due to substance abuse in 1994. ..
      White was given the Manson band member name Twiggy Ramirez, which was derived by taking the first name from English supermodel Twiggy and the surname from American serial killer Richard Ramirez. ..
      In 1998, White made a cameo in Monster Magnet's music video for "Space Lord". ..
      In 2001, White appeared on an MTV Cribs episode: the "Ozzfest Edition". White was an integral part of Marilyn Manson (both in the writing process and image) until he ended his long time musical partnership with Manson on May 29, 2002. It has been said that White quit the band in order to preserve his friendship with Manson rather than quarrel over the band's creative direction, and thought that it was becoming too much of a routine.
