Back In The Day – King Diamond

Back in 1987 listening to King Diamond was the fastest way to piss off your parents! Following the break up of Mercyful Fate, vocalist and primary song writer, King Diamond had formed a solo project that released a series of concept albums in the vein of Rock Operas. Known for his satanic imagery, stage shows and conceptual records, King Diamond (the band) has proven to out sell every other project the corpse painted vocalist had formed. "The Family Ghost" video is a selection off the 1987 release "Abigail", a story set in 1845 about an inherited mansion haunted by the spirits of it's bloody past. The video also features drummer power house Mickey Dee, whom has spent the last 16 years playing for the legendary Motorhead. Dee was asked several times by Lemmy to join Motorhead while playing for Diamond in the 80's, it took 7 years and an ego-fall out with Diamond to finally accept.
