Bill Rieflin –
Musician, producer, revolting cock.
Sept. 29, 1960 – March 24, 2020.
Aged 59 years.
Most recognized for: When industrial metal acts needed a percussionist who could not only program their computerized drum machines but also beat the skins live, Bill was the guy. Fortunately, his work with Ministry, KMFDM, Nine Inch Nails, The Revolting Cocks, Pigface, Swans, and King Crimson helps us to overlook those 5 R.E.M. albums he played on. We get it… one R.E.M. record probably paid more than all the work with Ministry combined…. but c’mon, man. R.E.M.?!
