Biography

Terence Charles White (born March 3, 1948 in Devon, England) (known as Snowy White), is an English guitarist. Self-taught from the age of ten, he moved to Stockholm, Sweden, in 1965 to play in trio The Train, journeying to London to join Heavy Heart, before invited to join Pink Floyd in 1977 on their Animals tour, performing several solos including “Sheep” and “Shine on You Crazy Diamond Part VIII”. Attracting the attention of Thin Lizzy in 1979, White was invited to join as a full time guitarist, where he stayed for three years, writing two albums Chinatown (1980) and Renegade (1981) and performing on Life (1983) before leaving the band to release White Flames (1983) which included the hit “Bird of Paradise” peaking at number 6 on the UK Singles Chart in January 1984. This was followed by Snowy White (1984) and That Certain Thing (1987) as well as two albums as Snowy White’s Blues Agency: Change My Life and Open for Business in 1988 and 1989, respectively. The following year, White was approached by Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters to perform at The Wall Concert in Berlin and by 1996 had formed his own blues rock band, Snowy White & the White Flames, recording eleven albums and releasing six compilations including Goldtop: Groups & Sessions ’74-’94, named after White’s beloved Gibson Les Paul Goldtop Standard guitar, and featuring material from various personal projects as well as his collaborations with Thin Lizzy and Pink Floyd. In 2006 and 2010, White toured with Roger Waters on his The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall Live world tours, appearing on Roger Waters: The Wall live album, which included material from the tour. In 2020, White announced his retirement from music, releasing his final album, Something On Me, on October 9, 2020.
