Former KING DIAMOND and current MOTRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee was in brief talks to make an appearance on the current KING DIAMOND album, Abigail II: The Revenge, but due to Mikkey' commitment to MOTRHEAD, his contributions never took place. I was actually talking to King about playing on that album, because [bassist] Hal Patino is back in the band, Dee told Norway's Metal Express. I speak to [KING DIAMOND guitarist] Andy [LaRocque] every week at leastwe go out and have drinks here all the time as we're good friends. So, Andy said 'Oh Mikkey you have to play on that album,' and I was like, 'Yes sure, I'd do that,' but I don't think King wanted it, because he wanted a drummer who can stay in the band for the tour and everything. And I couldn't do that, because we tour with MOTRHEAD all the time. But I said, 'If you want help on the album, I'm here'.
