Scorpions And Motörhead Drummer Mikkey Dee Shares Covid-19 Battle
He Lost 15 Pounds, Not 35
Mikkey Dee, who used to play drums for Motörhead and is now with Scorpions, has revealed that he battled coronavirus earlier this year but has since “fully recovered”. He took to social media to share his experience since Don Dokken made a rather incorrect statement about his health issues in an interview with SongFacts – from where Dee got the virus to how many pounds he actually lost.
In a post on Instagram, Dee said: “I just want to set some rumors straight regarding Don Dokkens statement about my Corona situation. I did get Corona and was sick for about 1 month. I am now fully recovered since mid April. I was already playing hockey and drums by the end of April. Unfortunately my good friend Don got some info wrong.”
He added, “I did not get Corona in Australia, the virus was contracted in Sweden. I did not loose 35 pounds, I lost 15 pounds. But as I just mentioned, I am now fully recovered and have registered antibodies so that feels great. I can’t wait for things to go back to normal so we can hit the road again. Thank you guys for caring and my heart goes out to each and everyone affected by the current situation our world is in.”
