Vince White was born Gregory Stuart Lee White in 1960 in Marylebone, London. He graduated with a BSc. (Hons) degree in Astronomy & Physics from University College London in 1981. In 1983 he joined The Clash as one of two replacements for original member Mick Jones, touring and recording with the band until its final dissolution in 1986. He then became a mini cab driver and dropped out and took to life on the road. He finally settled down enough to complete a BSc. in Fine Art at Middlesex University in North London. He has recently released a personal account of his involvement with the Clash entitled: 'OUT OF CONTROL: The Last Days of The Clash' published by Moving Target books. Today he still spends much of his time travelling and lives and works as an artist in Notting Hill, West London.
