Former MOTÖRHEAD and current SCORPIONS drummer Mikkey Dee has been working with art team and publisher SceneFour on an art collection crafted from the new medium of “rhythm-on-canvas.”
The complete details about the collection, which is expected to be unveiled later in the year, will be released soon.
The first episode of a new documentary, “A Week in Dee World”, featuring behind-the-scenes video footage from the making of Mikkey‘s art collection, can be seen below.
Dee has joined an extraordinary group of drummers working with art team SceneFour in the medium, including Bill Ward (BLACK SABBATH), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER), Rick Allen (DEF LEPPARD), Mike Mangini (DREAM THEATER), Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) and Nick Menza (MEGADETH).
Dee joined SCORPIONS last September as a permanent replacement for the band’s longtime drummer James Kottak, who was previously said to be on a break while he sought medical attention.
Regarding how playing with SCORPIONS is different from performing with MOTÖRHEAD, Mikkey said: “I played so long with MOTÖRHEAD, we were a three-piece, and that’s a tremendous difference. For instance, when Phil [Campbell, MOTÖRHEAD guitarist] was doing his solo, I might have to be a little busier on the kick drum. Here [in the SCORPIONS], I’ve gotta think the opposite — I’ve gotta be easier on certain things and step into some other stuff. But it’s a great challenge.”
