After Beatlemania, The White were the first musical group to be known as a tribute band. Michael White formed The White in 1977. Since then the group has played over 8,000 shows to over a million fans around the world.
While on tour in 1984, Michael White caught the attention of Robert Plant who introduced him to Atlantic Records. The label eventually signed him to a $350,000 record deal and subsequently released his debut solo album in 1987. Michael was also credited as the original vocalist for Motley Crue (1979-80) as documented in the official biography ‘The Dirt’ (2002). He has also performed and or recorded with artists such as Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue), Jeff Healey, Rick Emmett (Triumph), Alice Cooper, Steve Cropper (Booker T & the MG’s/Blues Brothers), Keith Emerson (ELP), Carmine Appice (Rod Stewart), Steve Morse (Deep Purple), Steve Lukather (Toto), Rick Wakeman (Yes), Alan White (Yes), Manny Charlton (Nazareth), Vinnie Colaiuta (Jeff Beck), George Lynch (Dokken), Randy Piper (WASP), Bobby Chouinard (Billy Squire), Albert Lee (Jackson Browne/Joe Cocker), Dweezil Zappa and Walter Trout.
Although he has been performing Led Zeppelin’s music for so many years, Mr. White doesn’t get tired of it. “I love it,” he said. “The music is as vital today as it ever was.” At one recent show in particular, Mr. White said three generations attended together. He is also the leader of the Q107 House Band and performs on the morning show with John Derringer.
Formed in 2010, Floydium is a dynamic band that consists of 7 seasoned studio and touring musicians from Toronto who are dedicated to accurately recreating the music of Pink Floyd.
