  1. We say farewell to another metal master, Wurzel RIP.

  2. OMG, not another one. How many more are we going to lose?

  3. A better guitarist then he was given credit for, never got to see them in person but I have a live DVD ‘The Birthday Party’ , while watching it I realized how much I understated his talent, the guy had an incredible tone and had excellent live solos, rest in peace Wurzel
