According to the official announcement on Scorpions’ website:
“We would like to thank James for so many years of lasting participation in the band and personal friendship. We understand and respect his need for time as he makes his way through the final stages of his healing process. After our incredibly successful shows in the US, Europe and Asia, we are sure to have found a fantastic drummer with Mikkey Dee. He brings a fresh energy to the band and we look forward to the exciting time together that lies ahead.”
Mikkey has been playing with Scorpions since April 2016, when James Kottak, their drummer since the 1990s, took a break on medical advice.
“I feel truly honoured and fortunate to be able to carry on playing drums on this level. I grew up listening to Scorpions and have always loved the band. We have been friends for a long time so traveling and performing this year with Klaus, Rudolf, Matthias and Pawel has been loads of fun and the crew is very professional. The Scorpions fans have been most welcoming and it’s been great to meet all the crazy wonderful Motörhead bangers along the way.
I had some close to 25 amazing years with my friends and brothers Lemmy and Phil in Motörhead and that will always be the backbone in my future drumming. Lemmy always had great respect for Scorpions for being a real rock band and I am sure he is proud up there that I moved on and for playing with this class act. Here’s to many more years of rock and roll.”

The Road to NAMM
January 20-24, 2016
by Robert Cavuoto
The biggest and best names in musical instruments come to Anaheim, California every winter for 4 days to show off their new products. This year NAMM boasts 1,700 exhibitors showcasing products of every type across music products, pro audio, lighting, and sound recording, collectively displaying over 6,000 brands to attendees from 125 countries and regions around the world.
“Motorhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motorhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many. We won’t be doing any more tours or anything. And there won’t be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone. I’m incredibly grateful over the years we had, and that we had such a good time together.”
