JAMES KOTTAK - Former SCORPIONS Drummer Offers Thanks For Support During “My Time Of Healing”

Former Scorpions drummer James Kottak, who was dismissed from the band during a battle with alcoholism and replaced with Motörhead’s Mikkey Dee, has issued the following message:

“Hello to all my family, friends, and freaks,

“I want to send a HUGE thank-you from the bottom of my heart for the thousands of messages of hope and positivity during my time of healing! I am humbled and honoured by your love and gracious offerings. I am healthy & happy living in the now…grateful for yesterday, excited for the future.

“As one chapter of my life closes…a thousand new doors of adventure have opened. I have been given the ultimate gift of life with my personal REboot. To quote one of my fav songs ‘Tomorrow is a Brand New Day’. With the support of Athena and my three wonderful kids, today IS the first day of the rest of my life!

I look forward to reconnecting and seeing you all SOON! Rock & Roll Forever!”
