The third episode of a new documentary, “A Week in Dee World”, features video footage of former MOTÖRHEAD and current SCORPIONS drummer Mikkey Dee performing at the “Ultimate Jam Night” second-anniversary concert on January 17 at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California as he and former bandmate Don Dokken brought the house down with a mini-set of SCORPIONS, DOKKEN and MOTÖRHEAD numbers.
Dee joined SCORPIONS last September as a permanent replacement for the band’s longtime drummer James Kottak, who was previously said to be on a break while he sought medical attention.
Regarding how playing with SCORPIONS is different from performing with MOTÖRHEAD, Mikkey said: “I played so long with MOTÖRHEAD, we were a three-piece, and that’s a tremendous difference. For instance, when Phil [Campbell, MOTÖRHEAD guitarist] was doing his solo, I might have to be a little busier on the kick drum. Here [in the SCORPIONS], I’ve gotta think the opposite — I’ve gotta be easier on certain things and step into some other stuff. But it’s a great challenge.”
As previously reported, Dee has been working with art team and publisher SceneFour on an art collection crafted from the new medium of “rhythm-on-canvas.”
The complete details about the collection, which is expected to be unveiled later in the year, will be released soon.
