Longtime Motorhead and current Scorpions drummer Mikkey Dee has revealed that he was diagnosed with, and has since recovered from COVID-19. Mikkey went public in Instagram with his version of the story after Don Dokken shared a partially incorrect account of the drummer’s illness earlier this month.

Mikkey writes in an Instagram post- “I just want to set some rumors straight regarding Don Dokken’s statement about my Corona situation. I did get corona and was sick for about one 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. I did not get corona in Australia; the virus was contracted in Sweden. I did not lose 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.”
