Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee, now full time sticksman with The Scorpions, has posted a video created by Andreas Werling with pictures by Pep Bonet, one year to the day since Lemmy passed away.

Pep Bonet is an acclaimed Spanish photographer and the author of a new book, 'Motörhead's Roadkill: Victory Or Die', which was released last week and features contributions from Guns N' Roses' Slash and Queen's Brian May, including backstage pictures and commentary.

Mikkey added the following to his post:

"I can't believe it's been a year!

"I will always remember but let's celebrate his life rather then mourn his death, or as Lemmy would have put it;

"'Don't sit and cry in your fucking beer - drink it'.

"Your brother, Mikkey."

Mikkey also posted a birthday greeting to Lemmy on Saturday, Christmas Eve, on what would have been Lemmy's 71st birthday.

"Happy Birthday my dear friend. I miss you every single day."

Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine recently said about Mikkey:

"With Mikkey, it's fantastic. It really gives the band a fresh shot of energy. Mikkey joined this band where we just played the big encore. And at the end of this year, we all need a break. And Mikkey is, like, 'C'mon, guys. We've gotta keep going. This is so fantastic. We have such a good time. The fans are amazing around the world. And let's keep going.'

"And we say, 'Okay.' But at this point, we've played everywhere. We've been everywhere — we've played all continents, and even in Australia. So at the end of this tour, we all need a break. But, of course, we will pick it up at some point, because it really feels great with Mikkey."
