MOTÖRHEAD Drummer Comments On RANDY BLYTHE's Incarceration (Video)

On July 27, Artisan News conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee at the Camden, New Jersey stop of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. You can now watch the chat below.

On LAMB OF GOD singer's incarceration in the Czech Republic in connection with the death of a fan more than two years ago:

Mikkey: "I really feel for him, but I really don't know all the details, [so] I can't really say what's happened on that one. I feel for the guy's family that passed away, obviously, [that] died. And I feel for the guys in LAMB OF GOD and for him. I hope it's all gonna solve itself."

On how members of MOTÖRHEAD's road crew once also got in trouble in the Czech Republic:

Mikkey: "[There] was a small brawl at the hotel with some of the crew guys. We're talking… It was a beer problem, I think, or they couldn't bring a beer into that certain hotel bar, and it escalated to something ridiculous. And it ended up by a few guys [getting] arrested for really nothing. And in the end, they were held for a long time. They said, 'You can't come over here and do what you did.' And we go, 'What did we do?' [chuckles] There's always two sides to every story, I suppose."

On how a fan was once seriously injured at a MOTÖRHEAD show:

Mikkey: "One guy years ago threw himself from the second floor in a theater and ended up breaking his back on one of the seats. And they came after us for that. I mean, I really don't know what to tell you. It's not very healthy to jump off the second floor. You should stop doing that."
