Motörhead guitarist Michael 'Würzel' Burston dies, aged 61

11 July 2011 6:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Motörhead guitarist Würzel has died at the age of 61. Long-time Motörhead bass technician Tim Butcher confirmed that the musician - real name Michael Burston - passed away over the weekend. He reportedly succumbed to heart disease. Würzel became synonymous with Motörhead's duelling lead guitar sound, and pursued a career in music only after touring Europe as a corporal in the British Army. Motörhead frontman Lemmy hired both Würzel and Phil Campbell to replace the departing Brian Robertson in 1984, with the trio making their televised debut in an episode of The Young Ones.
