Canada’s The Metal Voice spoke to Motorhead Drummer Mikkey Dee about the re-issue of the Motorhead album Bad Magic, now Serious Bad Magic box set, with two new tracks, a live album and an interview with Lemmy.
Serious Bad Magic box set was released Feb 24 2023 via Silver Lining Music.
Mikkey Dee also spoke about playing with the Scorpions as well as if he would reunite with the King Diamond band.
Mikkey Dee was asked if he and Phil ever tour as Motorhead replacing Lemmy like so many other bands today, he replied,” I really don’t think they (fans) want us to do that. That’s to me is stepping over the the line. We will never ever ever tour with Motorhead as a name, ever and bring someone else in. That will never happen. But what we are doing is some shows here and there. I just did two shows Saturday and Sunday here in Sweden with two younger guys and did 10 Motorhead songs and this show sold out in less than two weeks. I mean Bam Bam we have to add that Sunday and it’s so great to play the old classics again and and perform. But it has nothing to do with trying to be Motorhead and this is not advertised as Motorhead, it’s advertised Mickey Dee with friends yeah for instance, so there’s a definitely a a line there.”
Bad Magic: SERIOUSLY BAD MAGIC will be released on Double 12” Vinyl, CD Digipak with Bonus Disc, Limited Edition Boxset, Digital Download and Streaming. The Limited Edition Boxset will contain the CD Digipak with Bonus Disc, Double 12” Vinyl.

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).
