Musical Career

White first appeared alongside Green Day when he appeared in the When I Come Around music video with his then girlfriend. He joined Billie Joe Armstrong, Aaron Cometbus and Bill Schneider as a guitarist of punk quartet, Pinhead Gunpowder in 1994 to replace Sarah Kirsch (Mike Kirsch at the time). In 1997 he helped Armstrong run Adeline Records and reappeared for two more Green Day songs two years later. White toured with the band after the release of their album, Warning. In 2003 he joined the members of Green Day for their side project called The Network. They released one album, Money Money 2020 which fans speculate is actually a re-recorded version of Green Day's stolen album, Cigarettes and Valentines, but this has been denied by Armstrong.

In 2005 he played alongside the band in the music video for Wake Me Up When September Ends, the first time anyone else has played alongside Green Day in a music video. In the same year, he appeared in the band's live CD/DVD, Bullet in a Bible. In 2008, White once again joined Green Day in another side project called Foxboro Hot Tubs.
