On the 14th of September 2017, a whole collection of visual art is set to be unveiled. Those will not depict any lady with an ermine or sunflowers. They may be in gold frames, but we honestly doubt the authors have planned something like that.
What we do know is that Scorpions’ current drummer Mikkey Dee has been working with art team and publisher SceneFour on an art collection that has been described as “a pioneering effort in the new medium of crafting visual art through drum performance.” Fans are invited to sign up at Dee’s website to learn more and see the collection before it is unveiled to the general public.
Mikkey Dee has joined a group of extraordinary 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 the late Nick Menza (ex-Megadeth).
Born in Gothenburg in Sweden, Mikkey Dee moved to Denmark in the mid 80s to play and record with King Diamond during the latter half of the decade, then joined Motörhead in 1992. He remained the band’s full-time drummer until Motörhead disbanded following Lemmy Kilmister’s death in December 2015. In September 2016, Dee joined Scorpions as a permanent replacement for the veteran German rockers’ long-time drummer James Kottak, who was previously said to be on a break while he was dealing with an alcohol and drug addiction.
Here is an official trailer of Mikkey Dee’s artistic undertaking with art team SceneFour:
