In 1994, The Cult's John Tempesta got his first big break when he joined White Zombie. Their 1995 album, Astro-Creep: 2000, with John behind the kit, introduced a new element to White Zombie's sound with Charlie Clouser adding programmed beats and loops to the core unit of Tempesta, bassist Sean Yseult and guitarist Jay Noel Yuenger, aka J.
I’ve always been a fan of The Cult, since I was a kid. I remember wearing the Love shirt and I remember seeing them on the Electric tour. Doing that tour last year [the 25th anniversary of Electric] was really exciting for me cause it’s one of my top favorites.
In a career spanning two decades, drummer John Tempesta has built a body of work that's deservedly earned him a place among metal's most popular and well-respected players. Presently, John can be found touring the world behind the drum throne of The Cult.
