Mikkey Dee (Scorpions, Motörhead) Honored As “Gothenburger Of The Year”

Yesterday (November 27), Mikkey Dee (Scorpions, Motörhead) was presented with the honorary “Gothenburger Of The Year” title in Gothenburg, Sweden. As part of the award, the drummer’s name was placed on a tram and he got to drive “40 tons of metal to the Queens Square where he [was] honored in front of fans and the people of Gothenburg.” Gothenburg city officials commented:

“We, the people of Gothenburg, feel an enormous pride that we have an artist of the world of this caliber in our city. For over 40 years Mikkey has performed with an amazing passion in some of the biggest bands in the world. He is true inspiration for all of us as well as young musicians”.

Rob Halford (Judas Priest) Reveals He Received One Of The Bullets Containing The Ashes Of The Late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead)

As previously reported, the ashes of the late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) were placed inside bullets and given out to his closest friends. Now, it has been confirmed that Rob Halford (Judas Priest) was one of those recipients.

Halford told “SpeedFreaks” the following:

“When Lemmy passed away, I had this beautiful opportunity to speak at his memorial. We had a great get-together; all of us musicians from all over the world, we met in Hollywood and we talked about Lemmy and his great life and the things that he’s left us. And then, not too far back, I get something in the mail from the Lemmy people; Lemmy’s office, his manager and everybody still work tirelessly to keep his name with us, as he always will be. They sent me — it’s a bullet [laughs], it’s a bullet with some of Lemmy’s ashes inside of it.”

“This is nuts. This is the kind of thing that Lemmy would have loved to have done. However you choose to interpret what I’ve just said, that’s entirely up to you. But to be thought of, to be brought into this small circle of friends where you actually own a little bit of Lemmy’s ashes and you wear it around your neck on a pendant and he’s close to your heart in the truest sense in terms of his mortal remains, that’s just mind-blowingly powerful. To use an object like that to carry his remains is just so Lemmy — it’s provocative, it makes you think, it makes you talk. But as far as having a beautiful part of Lemmy physically with me right now in my house, that’s just magical.”
