Tim  Butcher, bass tech for Motorhead has posted on his Facebook page that former Motorhead guitarist Michael "Wurzel" Burston has died today (July 9) at age 61. Wurzel played guitar for Motorhead from 1884-1995, and for the past few years he played in a band called LEADER OF DOWN, which headlined the main stage last month in the U.K at the "Never Mind The Bullocks" festival.

Check out the video from November 28, 2009 when Wurzel joined Motorhead at the Hammersmith Apollo to throw down on "Ace Of Spades".
