In a career spanning two decades, drummer John Tempesta has built a body of work that's deservedly earned him a place among metal's most popular and well-respected players. Perhaps best known for his tenure with ROB ZOMBIE — both in WHITE ZOMBIE and with Rob's solo project — John worked his way up through the drumming ranks, always looking for his next challenge and never resting on past achievements. With an extensive professional resume that includes gigs with EXODUS, TESTAMENT, Zakk Wylde's BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, Tony Iommi, HELMET and SCUM OF THE EARTH (which features John's brother, guitarist Mike Tempesta), John can currently be found touring the world behind the drum throne of THE CULT.

"As a drummer," John said, "being in THE CULT is great for me because I get to play really heavy, but I can play soft as well because there are so many dynamics in this music. It's definitely a change for me from just full out thrashing with TESTAMENT or playing all of the loops with ZOMBIE. It's a nice progression and I really enjoy the music. I'm really happy to be with these guys because they've been one of my favorite bands and a big influence on me for many years. The funny thing is I had planned to audition for THE CULT in 1993," he recalls. "But then I ended up touring with TESTAMENT, and after that I got the WHITE ZOMBIE gig, so timing, again, really is everything."
