Würzel from Motörhead guests on stage with his former band at Donington 2008

The metal world has suffered another heavy loss, with the sad news that former Motörhead guitarist, Würzel, passed away on July 9, 2011, reportedly from heart disease. He was 61 years old.

Würzel joined Motörhead in 1984, for the timeless album Orgasmatron, and remained with the band through to 1995.

According to Mark Carras at RockMyMonkey.com:

He had acquired the nickname Würzel in the Army because his Scarecrow like hair made him look like a British children’s fictional character Worzel Gummidge. Motörhead leader Lemmy Kilmister is rumored to have had the idea to add the umlaut to the ‘U’ to make it more metal.

Motorhead

Our friend Mark Carras over at Rock My Monkey pointed out that the new Motörhead album, The World Is Yours, is streaming online for FREE right now at AOL Music.

Seriously, give it a listen — it’s FREE, and it’s the entire album, which was released in the U.S. on February 8, 2011. I’m not familiar with AOL’s CD listening parties, so I’d recommend checking this out right away, since I’m not sure how long it will be streaming for free.

The new album is awesome. When I listened to The World Is Yours, I felt like I did back in 1987 when I first heard Rock-N-Roll… it’s sooooo good.

Foo FightersButch Vig, best known as the producer of Nirvana‘s Nevermind album and drummer of the band Garbage, recently discussed that he reunited ex-Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic for a track on an upcoming Foo Fighters album. The track is titled “I Should Have Known,” and will be featured on the next album from Grohl’s band.

The new song sees Novoselic contribute both bass guitar and accordion (!!) to the track. Recording for the as-of-yet untitled album was completed at the beginning of this year, and is being held for a release during April.

Grohl and Novoselic first worked together in the band Nirvana, led by frontman Kurt Cobain. Their breakthrough album was Nevermind, released in 1991, and produced by Butch Vig. The release of the album would usher in a new attitude, sound, and feel for the hard rock/metal and punk community that would eventually be labeled as the “Grunge” genre by the media. During their career, Nirvana released songs such as “About a Girl,” “Smells like Teen Spirit,” and “All Apologies.”
