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”

Biopic On Late Motörhead Frontman Lemmy Kilmister In The Works

According to Deadline, a new biopic focusing on the late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) is currently in the works. The movie, which is simply titled “Lemmy,” will be directed by Greg Olliver, who previously directed the 2010 documentary of the same name.

Olliver commented:

“Everything you’ve heard about Lemmy is probably true… not because he was embracing rock n’ roll clichés, but because he was creating them. Marlboro Reds and Jack Daniel’s for breakfast, speed for dinner – all true. But behind that steely-eyed façade of rock n’ roll was also a compelling, complicated and lion-hearted man who stayed the course and never gave up playing the music that made him happy.

We’ve been carefully developing this biopic since 2013, making sure to stay true to Lemmy, Motörhead band members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and all the other folks that played important roles in Lemmy’s life. This will be a film they’ll be proud of.”

Production on the film is expected to begin early next year with VMI Worldwide’s Andre Relis set to produce, alongside Damon Lane. The screenplay was written by Medeni Griffiths with some assistance from Olliver. Motörhead’s manager Todd Singerman and Steffan Chirazi will also serve as executive producers.

Motörhead Release New Video For “(We Are) The Road Crew” In Support Of Crew Nation

Motörhead have shared a new video for their song “(We Are) The Road Crew.” The clip was released in support of Live Nation’s Crew Nation.

The band commented:

“The road crew are the backbone of any successful live event, and to Lemmy and Motörhead they were more than just workers or employees, they were family. Lemmy loved them so much that he wrote a classic song dedicated to them, an anthem: ‘(We Are) The Road Crew’.

It pains us to see our family hurting, so we would like to honor, respect and show our solidarity to those that make what we all enjoy possible with this brand new ‘…Road Crew’ video by Robert John.

We would also like to challenge our friends and colleagues to join us by posting photos and videos of their beloved road warriors. Let’s give them some social media spotlight, love and gratitude! We wanna see yours!

For those that would like to chip in, we encourage you to go to Live Nation’s road crew assistance program Crew Nation and give what you can, any little bit helps. And all streaming proceeds from our ‘(We Are) The Road Crew’ video tribute will be donated to the fund.

This movement has no genre, it has no labels, it has no limitations. Remember… #WeAreTheRoadCrew”
