MOTÖRHEAD To Perform On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

September 29, 2009

MOTÖRHEAD will perform on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Thursday, October 8 (which will actually air the morning of Friday, October 9).

MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee finished third in the reality-TV competition "Kändisdjungeln", the Swedish version of the popular U.K. and U.S. show "I'm a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here!". Dee was eliminated during the series' fifteenth episode, which aired on Friday (September 25).

Dee, 45, sat out most of MOTÖRHEAD's current North American tour in order to take part in "Kändisdjungeln", which was filmed in the jungles of Malaysia. Filling in for him on the dates that he missed was former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum.

"There was a breakdown in communication, really," MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister told Noisecreep. "Our management didn't know that he'd signed up for this when they booked the tour. We didn't want him to have to cancel, they might have sued him or something."

"Motörizer", the latest album from MOTÖRHEAD, sold a little more than 6,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 82 on The Billboard 200 chart. The follow-up to 2006's "Kiss of Death" was recorded in part (drums only) at FOO FIGHTERS frontman/ex-NIRVANA drummer Dave Grohl's Studio 606 in Northridge, California with producer Cameron Webb, who also worked on "Kiss of Death" and 2004's "Inferno".
