According to a posting on the Facebook page of Tim Butcher - Lemmy's longtime bass technician - former Motörhead guitarist Michael "Würzel" Burston died yesterday (Saturday, July 9). The cause of death was not revealed. Würzel was 61 years old.
Before joining Motörhead in 1984, Burston had been a corporal in the Army, serving in Germany and Ireland with the 1st Battalion of the Gloucestershire Regiment, and had played in the bands Bastard and Warfare. Joining another relatively unknown guitarist, Phil Campbell, they played together at a Motörhead audition, and both were taken on.
Burston acquired the nickname Würzel while in the Army, being compared to the character Worzel Gummidge due to his scarecrow-style hair and bumpkin-like manner. Lemmy reportedly demanded that Würzel add an umlaut to the "U" in his name, for "heavy metal effect."
Happy Motörhead Day everybody... or at least everybody from Austin, TX.

Local musician David Siddall reportedly made the formal request to the Mayor's Office, and a signed proclamation was issued on parchment with the official state seal.

UPDATED on (June 7):
Motörhead have titled their new album "Motörize". They have just finished recording it at the 606 Studios in Los Angeles, which is owned by Dave Ghrol (Nirvana, Foo Fighters). Motörhead are now heading to Europe to perform at several summer festivals.
The following message was posted on SPV's website:
"Better Motörhead Than Dead - Live At Hammersmith rekindles memories of a momentous night that even a cosmopolitan city like London doesn't see every day. Early June 2005 saw the long queue in front of the venerable Hammersmith Odeon, a venue of many legendary live shows - stretch right to the tube station on the other side of the road. What was going on? Motörhead had invited their fans to their 30th anniversary party, and over 5,000 of them accepted. Their number would have been even greater had the powers that be in the British capital not rigorously limited the capacity of the illustrious venue. Loved by their fans, respected by the press due to the personal integrity of the three band members, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, Motörhead were experiencing their seventh or eighth spring in the 30th year of their existence and continued to be as generous as ever.
