It is with sadness that we report that White Zombie drummer Phil Buerstatte has passed away over the weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. There are no details surrounding his death as of yet. He was 44 years old.
Buerstatte played with the band from 1992 through 1994, making him a part of the La Sexorcisto tour as well as recording three tracks with the band.
In a Facebook post, singer Rob Zombie states, “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 trouble 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 recording 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.”
Rest in peace, Phil.
