    Since Twiggy joined A Perfect Circle I was wondering if he is going by Twiggy or his real name, Jeordie White?
     
  2. i don't know, but i don't really favor twiggy, his tone in bland like a piece of rock agaisnt 30 year old flatwounds. his image is way too much for APC, his playing isn't all that powerful or supporting to me. in fact i think i would have made the perfect replacement for paz. :)

    Well he might not be full on Twiggy in APC. He might change his "name", image, and/or tone. Who knows. His playing was always solid.

    I've been listening to Thirteenth Step(the new APC) and its great, really nice playing by Jeordie. He has said that he doesnt care if people still call him Twiggy Ramirez, but at the first APC show with him Maynard introduced him as "Courtney Love". However, alot of the bass parts were recorded before he came aboard. He plays a P-bass now, and finger-picks.
     
  5. He's dropped the "Twiggy" image, and the is now play a Deluxe P-bass, which was the same one that Paz played on tour with them...

    I think Twiggy is a much better bass player than he seemed to be while in Manson... I'm definitely liking the new APC album, though it takes awhile for it to get going.

    I'm pretty sure Manyard's mom died right before that album. What were you expecting after something like that happens to a band member, a ska album?
     
  8. Ditto.. I think there's more twiggy than we've listened to in MM.. In many MM albums he recorded guitars and did lots of arrangements to the songs. Besides.. so far, APC doestn't ask much more than what he did with MM IMO..

    Let me guess, you miss her because of the basslines she didn't write. Or...
