During a recent interview, former Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee (currently Scorpions) has revealed his thoughts on playing with Motörhead. He said:
“After almost twenty-five years with Motörhead, playing the same music, playing the same stuff and thinking that way as a drummer, it was a big, big challenge for me, and it was not easy — and it still isn’t easy. These guys are very, very…
They’re great musicians, and they know what they want, they know how to sound, and I have to adjust myself at the same time as they really need to adjust to me. But I think we manage pretty good, and the result is a great, great live show.
It’s very tight, it’s very heavy. I’ve heard some remarks about, ‘Oh, back to the ’70s,’ kind of, and, ‘Really powerful.’ I’m giving it my best; I’m giving two hundred percent up there. So it’s good.”
He also talked about his new band, Scorpions, and said:
“Joining a band like Scorpions is easy to get into but it’s so hard to get into at the same time, because they have their routines, they have their way of working and the whole thing, and so do I.
So either it clicks or it doesn’t, on the personal level and on the musical level. But here we clicked right away, they loved what they heard and how I played, and so did I. And it was great for me to join a band and play something else as well.”
