Michael White And The WhiteIn 1976 Michael White was a member of 'The Boyz' (with George Lynch and Mick Brown from Dokken). Managed by Kim Fowley (The Runaways), The Boyz amassed a significant following in the LA music scene. To illustrate the calibre of the band at that time, Van Halen and Quiet Riot (with Guitarist Randy Rhoades) were opening acts for The Boyz on several occasions. The Boyz also opened several sold out shows in the L.A. area for the teenage girl band 'The Runaways'. So big was The Boyz profile, that Gene Simmons brought a rep from Casablanca Records to see the band (as credited in his book 'Kiss & Make-up'). Casablanca ended up flying Van Halen to New York to record demos that would eventually land them their record contract with Warner Brothers. Meanwhile The Boyz were getting reviews in the LA Times, that said vocalist White sounded like Robert Plant but record companies weren't signing acts that sounded like Led Zeppelin in 1976. They were signing bands that sounded like the Knack and Blondie. So the band broke up.In 1977 Michael started a band called 'LA Fox' with Randy Piper who would later go on to play with WASP. Again accused of sounding too much like Led Zeppelin, a record deal alluded the band. In late 1977, Michael started 'The White' with guitarist Lanny Cordola (Guiffria, House of Lords), an all-original band that was again shunned by the record labels for sounding too much like Led Zeppelin. Eventually White was approached by Nikki Sixx to front his band 'London' that would soon turn into Motley Crue (as credited in the Motley Crue biography 'The Dirt'). He played with them for about 6 months before returning full-time to 'The White'.
