Phil "Philo" Beurstatte, former drummer for White Zombie and also for Last Crack has reportedly been found dead over the weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. No further details have been provided at this point. Buerstatte was 44 years of age.

Phil was drummer for White Zombie from 1992 to 1994. He played on the La Sexorcisto tour. The drummer can also be remembered for his lengthy stint with Last Crack which spanned from 1986 to 1997.

Former Last Crack band mate Paul Schluter has released a statement on Buerstatte's passing, also pointing fans to a video from the last time the band played with its original line up back in 2009.

"We are sorry to have to announce that Last Crack drummer and our musical brother Phil Buerstatte has passed away today. He will be greatly missed by his many friends, family and fellow band members. Pull out your Last Crack albums, crank them up loud and remember what a great drummer he was!"

"It is the end of an era for us and sad to say the original lineup will never be able to play together again. Our last show with Phil from 2009 is posted on YouTube in its entirety. The remaining members of the band are discussing doing a tribute show in Phil's honor in the coming months. We'll post details here soon."
