Mikkey Dee (Motörhead, Scorpions, ex-King Diamond) on The MetalSucks Podcast #361
Legendary drummer Mikkey Dee is on the show this week! Mikkey talks about the upcoming 40th anniversary of Ace of Spades, his first time seeing Motörhead as a teenager before joining the band, Lemmy’s reluctance to play songs from the Ace of Spades live, and why Hammered is his least favorite record he performed on. Mikkey also talked about a whole lot about Lemmy: which part of Lemmy that always fascinated him, why having a sense of humor was such a key component to the joy of being around Lemmy, and Lemmy despising being put on a pedestal. We also get an update on the latest Scorpions record.
Brandon, Jozalyn, and Sylvia tackle Sebastian Bach’s walking out of an interview because of a gay joke involving Rob Halford, Rob’s reaction on a later episode of the same show, and why gay jokes by straight dudes are extremely dated.
Songs: Motörhead – “The Chase Is Better Than The Catch,” and Warfect – Left To Rot”
