MOTÖRHEAD's MIKKEY DEE On Paris Terror Attacks: 'Animals Don't Even Do This S**t To Each Other'
December 8, 2015
On December 6, Kaaos TV conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).
On the recent Paris terrorist attacks:
"I don't know where to start, really. I mean, these fucking assholes, you know… I just don't get it. I said to TV and to media, the press we've done, animals don't even do this shit to each other. So I don't know where these people come from. Are they from another planet or something? I don't know. So I don't even wanna talk more about it. I hope France can heal. And there's more countries than France that suffers from these fucking complete lunatics, you know. So… well, fuck 'em! And I hope people can get back to a normal life and refuse to give up anything for these fucking pricks, because I don't know what to call them. I wouldn't call them animals, 'cause animals are nice, and these fuckers are not."
On whether MOTÖRHEAD considered canceling any shows after the events in Paris due to security concerns:
"No. Not really. We are here to play. And the show in Paris got moved. But it actually was on… after the attacks, it still was on. And then the police and the French government, I guess, the city took the decision of canceling the shows. But we were actually there and ready to play, if they wanted us to play. I didn't think it was very proper to play, but if they wanted us to play, we would have played. But I think it was good that it got moved."
On whether he is personally more concerned about safety because of what happened at the EAGLES OF DEATH METAL concert in Paris:
"No. Not at all. Not whatsoever. Because this shit happens all the time, and we have to get used to it; it's gonna happen more and more. These radical fucking freaks. No. It makes me be a bit more aware. But I'm aware of it. Walking around Paris the next day, obviously, people were looking at each other a bit more. But, no, I really just… I hope it gets into a routine. I'm not gonna get scared of these fucking pricks. And you just have to be more aware, I guess. But you have to be able to continue your life the way you've been dealing with it.
