Motorhead Mikkey's animal passion
That's no 'philthy animal' with
Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee - it's his maine coon cat, Ester. And if you want
to see members of Opeth, Amon Amarth and others like you've never seen them
before, they're all in a charity calendar.
Sweden Rocks for Animal Rights
was the brainchild of Djurens Ratt (Animal Rights Sweden), who decided to ask
some of the nation's biggest stars to be photographed with their pets.
The resulting calendar features this picture of Dee and Ester, and eleven other
shots, which is now available to buy online
Marit Mossback of Djuerns
Ratt says: "We're really excited we were able to make the calendar. All the
artists and photographers contributed their time and effort for free, so all
profits will go to Animal Rights Sweden's work.
"We asked Mikkey if he'd
like to be photographed with Ester, and he was happy to help.
artists are the Hives, Amon Amarth, Sonic Syndicate, Dead by April, Soundtrack
of our Lives, Millencolin, Opeth, Dia Psalma, Crucified Barbara, Mando Diao and
"We'd like to thank them all for helping us make such a
rocking piece of wall art."
