"Terence Charles "Snowy" White(born 3 March 1948, Barnstaple, Devon) is an English guitarist, known for having played with Thin Lizzy (permanent member from 1980 to 1982) and with Pink Floyd (as a backing guitarist; he was first invited to tour with the band through Europe and the United States in 1977, and during The Wall shows in 1980) and, more recently, for Roger Waters' band.He is also known for his 1983 solo effort "Bird of Paradise", which became a UK Singles Chart Top 10 hit single.
Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players, musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock.
In the 1990's, Snowy, together with Juan van Emmerloot, (Drums) and Walter Latupeirissa, (Bass), formed `The White Flames' band, recording five albums in total from 1996 - 2007. Also featured on this album, Thomas White (bongos)& Paul Lily, Mick "Tinkerbell" Smith (strings).
This 1999 release is one of Snowy's most powerfully creative releases, nine tracks including two instrumentals. This may not be as great as their "No Faith Required" album but it is very listenable indeed.
"Although one might easily label Snowy White's music as progressive blues rock, progressive in the sense that it uses structures and arrangements, as well as a sometimes almost psychedelic free-formedness, that are uncommon to regular blues, it isn't really." The style of Snowy's playing reminds me of Mark Knopfler and the Dire Straits,with David Gilmour-ish undertones.
This one is a keeper with excellent bass lines and the percussion is bar none and of course there is Snowy.
