Mikkey Dee also spoke about playing with the Scorpions with a tennis elbow, as well as if he would reunite with the King Diamond band for a few shows.
When asked about performing with the Scorpions on the last North American tour in 2022 Mikkey Dee said," I was so nervous I had a tennis elbow. Montreal was the third show on a tour. We started in Toronto and then Quebec City and then Montreal. When when I came off stage in Quebec City I could not even hold a drumstick with my left hand and I told the boys I think it's over. I had this problem throughout the summer with my elbow a little bit and uh nothing that was super bad but in Quebec City and Toronto something happened I could not even close my hand. And I went to a fantastic doctor in Montreal through a friend of mine his name is Michael and he fixed me up. I did the show (Montreal) with no problem at all and the rest of the tour. I went to specialist here in Sweden and uh it's much much better now but I've been dragging this around for almost a year now you know and I don't know where it came from. But Montreal was the turning point right I have to say Dr Michael Stern I gotta say hi to him he saved my Swedish ass on that tour, so I'm very grateful for that.

Motörhead, the iconic Godfathers of heavy metal, released their 23rd (and final) studio album Bad Magic in 2015. Instantly hailed as one of the best the beloved trio had recorded in many years, Bad Magic: SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC enjoys a bonus-packed refresh, adding two previously unreleased tracks from those furious sessions:
“Bullet in Your Brain” and “Greedy Bastards” as well as a snarling, fangs-out live performance from that subsequent tour at the giant Mt Fuji Festival in Japan in 2015. Fans will also get “War, Love, Death and Injustice”, an audio interview with Lemmy conducted by Motörhead expert Robert Kiewik during the tour, and should the desire to have a chat with Lem or anyone beyond this mortal coil arise, the box-set will exclusively contain a MURDER ONE ouija board (complete with the Ace of Spades planchette to spell out the conversation).
