Sean Yseult, best known as the bass player from the multi-platinum and twice Grammy-nominated band White Zombie. The band formed in 1985 and Yseult played bass in White Zombie for 11 years before they disbanded in 1998. Though vocalist Rob Zombie went on to perform under his own name most fans recognize White Zombie as superior to his solo work. On November 1, 2010, Yseult released the book I’m in the Band, which contained tour diaries and photos as well as details from her eleven years spent as a member of White Zombie. She also was a member of the psycho-surf band Famous Monsters and the project that is most current is Star & Dagger.
This week on Talk Toomey: The Metal Nexus Podcast host Joshua Toomey welcomes former White Zombie bassist and artist Sean Yseult. Sean talks about her recent travels to China and some of the historic sites she likes to visit around the world. Sean talks about meeting Rob and the formation of White Zombie, and she also talks about how she was in a band for a very small time frame with original Corrosion Of Conformity vocalist Karl Agell. She also talks about how Mtv’s Beavis and Butthead helped promote their album and really increased their album sales. Sean also talks about how they found out about Pantera and touring during the support of their album ‘Cowboys From Hell’. She says their first show with Pantera was “The first time we saw people actually move around and react to our music”. She also goes in depth talking about Dimebag and the time her, Phil Anselmo and Dimebag recorded a song together. She also talks about her time with Famous Monsters and being able to tour with The Cramps, and that she currently isn’t doing anything musical band wise but will be releasing material with Star & Dagger in the future.
