“I remember the first time I laid eyes on the ‘Ace Of Spades’ album — it was 1980 in Dallas, Texas. I went to our local record store and as always straight to the import section because everyone knew that was where the best new music was to be found. I saw the cover and I had to have it. As soon as I got back home straight onto the turntable it went and that was it — I was hooked for life! We are proud to partner with Motörhead and Global Merchandising Services on our ‘Ace Of Spades’ candle.”

Mikkey Dee (Scorpions, Motörhead) Says He Recovered From COVID-19 In April

Mikkey Dee (Scorpions, Motörhead) has confirmed that he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year and that he has since recovered. The drummer decided to issue a statement on his condition after Don Dokken recently shared the news with some incorrect details.

Dokken previously told Songfacts the following:

“I talked to Mikkey Dee from the Scorpions the other night, and he and his wife got COVID in Australia. They were in the middle of nowhere and got it. He called me up and he said, ‘I’ll tell you, Don, you don’t want to get it. I was on the floor.’ He lost 35 pounds. He was sick as a dog. He was in a hospital. He was really in bad shape. He said, ‘I don’t know how I got it.’ Because they had social distancing big-time in Australia.”

Dee then responded:

“Hello guys! I just want to set some rumors straight regarding Don Dokkens statement about my Corona situation.

I did get Corona and was sick for about 1 month. I am now fully recovered since mid April. I was already playing hockey and drums by the end of April.

Unfortunately my good friend Don got some info wrong. I did not get Corona in Australia, the virus was contracted in Sweden. I did not loose 35 pounds, I lost 15 pounds. But as I just mentioned, I am now fully recovered and have registred antibodies so that feels great.

I can’t wait for things to go back to normal so we can hit the road again.

Thank you guys for caring and my heart goes out to each and everyone affected by the current situation our world is in.

Stay safe! Mikkey”
