According to BLABBERMOUTH, drummer Phil Buerstatte (ex-WHITE ZOMBIE, ex-LAST CRACK) was reportedly found dead over the weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. No further details are available at this time. Buerstatte was only 43 years old.
Buerstatte drummed with WHITE ZOMBIE between 1992 and 1994. He jammed with the band on the "La Sexorcisto" tour. He was also a member of LAST CRACK (a Metal band from Wisconsin) from 1986 to 1997.
Reportedly, last August, a man claiming to be Buerstatte was arrested on suspicion of defrauding a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Sausalito, California. This same man allegedly tried to pay $75,000 for his treatment at the Alta Mira Recovery Center in June with a fraudulent check and bank account information.
