RIP Würzel

Yep - the "other guitarist" who joined Motörhead at the same time as Phil Campbell (but eventually left the band without being replaced) has died, at age 61, of undisclosed causes; his birth name was apparently Michael Burston. I hadn't realize he'd released an album of psychedelically-inspired ambient music, given the rather pleasing title, Chill Out or Die. Nothing like a death threat to help a guy relax... I'm more a fan of his contributions to Bastards, one of the least-appreciated, least-well-distro'd Motörhead albums; check out "Death or Glory" for a taste...
