People die every day and inherently, that’s sad. But that’s the way the cookie crumbles, people.
The other day, it was former White Zombie drummer Phil Buerstatte’s turn.
His body was reportedly found over the weekend in Madison, Wisconsin.
No further details are available at this time.
Buerstatte was with White Zombie between 1992 and 1994, and played a bunch of shows with them.
His death was announced by a member of his latest band, Last Crack.
“He will be greatly missed by his many friends, family and fellow band members,” says a statement from that band dude.
“The remaining members of the band are discussing doing a tribute show in Phil’s honor in the coming months. We’ll post details soon.”
Last August, someone claiming to be Buerstatte was arrested on suspicion of defrauding a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Sausalito, California.
He bounced a $75,000 check to the Alta Mira Recovery Center.
Seems Phil didn’t fully recover.
