ROB ZOMBIE Comments On Ex-WHITE ZOMBIE Drummer's Passing
Former WHITE ZOMBIE and LAST CRACK drummer Phil Buerstatte was reportedly found dead over the weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. He was 44 years old.
Buerstatte was the drummer for WHITE ZOMBIE between 1992 and 1994 and he played with the band on the "La Sexorcisto" tour. He was also in the Wisconsin metal band LAST CRACK from 1986 to 1997.
Phil's former WHITE ZOMBIE bandmate Rob Zombie has since issued the following statement: "Well, I heard rumors of this a few days ago but I wasn't sure if they were true or not. But it seems that one of our former drummers for WHITE ZOMBIE has died. Phil Buerstatte who was in the band for about two years 1992-94 was found dead this weekend.
"Phil was a very troubled guy during his time with us and I never really knew what happened to him after he left the band. The few stories I heard were not good. He played on three recordings with us in his brief time, 'Feed The Gods' on the 'Airheads' soundtrack, 'Children Of The Grave' and 'I Am Hell' from the 'Beavis And Butthead' soundtrack."
