Over the weekend, Phil Buerstatte, drummer for Last Crack and formerly White Zombie, was discovered dead in Madison Wisconsin. A statement released by fellow Last Crack bandmember, Paul Schulter was posted to the band's page and stated that:
"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."
The band also released the link to Buerstatte's youtube channel, which contains rare footage of the band performing, which you can watch here: www.youtube.com/pscre8tive
