Michael 'Würzel' Burston: Guitarist who contributed some of Motörhead's finest rocking moments

Led by the ultimate rock'n'roll reprobate, the gruff-voiced bassist Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, Motörhead have been playing faster, heavier and louder than most of their heavy metal competitors for over 35 years now. Known to all the group's fans by his suitably umlaut-accented nickname, the guitarist "Würzel" – né Michael Burston – was a semi-professional musician whose take-no-prisoners approach to the instrument lived up to Kilmister's high expectations when he auditioned to fill the vacancy created by the departure of Brian Robertson, once of Thin Lizzy, in November 1983.

I'm sorry, says son of Pink Floyd star who scaled Cenotaph

Laurel Canyon: The paradise where they put up a parking lot

Once upon a time, there was a wooded wonderland where long-haired men and women wore flowers in their hair and often little else, where wood cabins nestled among cypresses and bougainvillea and the sound of birdsong mixed with guitars. Just a 10-minute drive north of Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood, Laurel Canyon was home to Joni Mitchell, The Doors, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Frank Zappa, The Mamas and The Papas, Jackson Browne and The Eagles.

Album: Truth & Salvage Co, Truth & Salvage Co (Megaforce)

A posse of Southern and Midwestern twangers united in the Angeleno sun, to play a four-square, tuneful, occasionally country-ish rock. Sound like the Eagles? Well, yes, at moments, in their attention to melodic detail and in the chime of the harmonies.

The Doors: Being strange on camera

To compliment the cinema release of Tom DiCillo’s documentary about the The Doors ‘When You’re Strange,’ the Idea Generation Gallery is hosting an exhibition of previously unseen and lesser known photographs from the controversial band’s history.

When You're Strange: A Film About The Doors (15)

Tom DiCillo's documentary about American rock band The Doors is rather ploddingly dominated by the personality of their lead singer Jim Morrison, whose death in a Paris hotel room in 1971 has burnished his myth ever since.

Ronnie James Dio: Singer who worked with Ritchie Blackmore in Rainbow and replaced Ozzie Osbourne in Black Sabbath

As lead vocalist with some of the biggest heavy metal bands of the 1970s and '80s, and fronting his own group, Ronnie James Dio bestrode festival stages and delighted millions of rock fans around the world. He also popularised the "devil's horns" gesture beloved of metal fans of all ages, and made it his trademark. "The 'sign'" is a superstitious symbol used by many older cultures," he remarked of the gesture he picked up from his Italian grandmother. "It's meant to intercept the evil eye and other curses, and what better place to use it than at a metal show?"

Album: Jimi Hendrix, Valleys Of Neptune (Sony/Experience Hendrix)

Valleys Of Neptune is the opening salvo of what we're promised is a "monumental" 2010 Hendrix Catalogue Project, involving various CD/DVD reissues of the original studio albums and, doubtless, several more ransackings of the tape vaults like this.
