Former White Zombie Drummer Passes Away

Phil Buerstatte

We learned that former White Zombie and Last Crack drummer Phil Buerstatte has passed away at the age of 44.

The drummer played with White Zombie between 1992—1994 during the La Sexorcisto tour, and recorded three tracks with the band – “Feed The Gods” from the Airheads soundtrack, “I Am Hell” for a Beavis & Butthead soundtrack, and a cover of the Black Sabbath track “Children Of The Grave.”

This follows an unusual chapter in the drummer’s life when last year California police arrested a 46-year-old named Loren Breckenridge who had been accused of defrauding a rehabilitation center in Northern California for $75,000 while posing as Buerstatte.
