(Classic Rock) Scorpions singer Klaus Meine has hailed former Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee as a "fresh wave of energy" for the band. Dee was named a permanent member of the veteran German outfit last month, after having joined them on a temporary basis in April. The move came after the end of Motorhead with mainman Lemmy's death in December.

Meine says in a press conference video, below: "We celebrate 50 years of Scorpions, but it's much more than that - the fact that the band is still together and we still put on a damn good show.

"And with Mikkey just joining the band, there's a fresh wave of energy. It's a lot of fun and we enjoy it every night." He adds: "You have great musicians - a great drummer, a great guitarist. And the guy can be the best musician in the world, but it's very important to have a good company." Read more here.
