Profile
William 'Bill' Rieflin (born September 30, 1960) is an American musician, most active as a drummer. He was recruited into Ministry following the 1985 demise of The Blackouts, a Seattle No Wave band whose final EP Lost Soul's Club had been produced by Al Jourgensen. Rieflin and Jourgensen fell out during the sessions for Filth Pig, ending a decade of collaboration. Since that time, Rieflin has worked with a number of other artists as well as releasing material under his own name. He became a member of the reformed King Crimson in 2013.
