Motörhead asked for their live stream from Knebworth not to go ahead this afternoon.

A statement on the Sonisphere site read; "Aa a mark of respect to the death of Michael 'Würzel' Burston, Motörhead have asked that their performance is not broadcast."

Lemmy took to the Sonisphere stage and announced yesterday's death of Würzel and dedicated the Sonisphere set and the rest of their lives to him.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day the Motörhead camp revealed their shock and pain at the passing of their former band mate. A spokesperson for the band told RockAAA their thoughts were with their former guitarist's family at this difficult time.

They said: "It was actually Lemmy who gave Würzel his name in the back of a taxi as he thought he looked like the TV character Worzel Gummidge because of his wild hair."

Motörhead requested that Rock Radio play 'Killed By Death' tonight as it was a track co-written by Lemmy and Würzel during a taxi journey from the flat they were sharing at the time and the Brittania Studios.
