Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister once referred to Michael "Wurzel" Burston as "a quiet monster. He's a very soft-spoken guy -- kind of a gent, even. But give him a guitar and he just...erupts."

[Image Can Not Be Found]

Wurzel, who was with Motorhead for nine albums between 1985-1995, died on July 9 from ventricular fibrillation caused by heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy), at the age of 61. Kilmister's bass tech, Tim Butcher, broke the news on his Facebook page, also referring to Wurzel as a "complete gent" and a "great guitarist, and writing "We will miss you."

On July 10 in Knebworth, England, Motorhead dedicated its Sonisphere Festival set "and our lives" to Wurzel. Drummer Mikkey Dee, meanwhile, told the Swedish newspaper Expressen that Wurzel "wrote damn good Motörhead riffs. I remember that I missed that when he was not there. I missed the simple classic Motörhead riffs. They were never written after that. They left with him. He was wonderful, he was really funny. There was a lot of rock and roll in the old man."

Love Motorhead.

RIP

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
