GOTTHARD SINGER DIES NEAR LAS VEGAS - STEVE LEE R.I.P.

KROKUS and Management would like to extend our sincere condolences to Steve Lee's family as well as to the band GOTTHARD.

Chris Von Rohr produced many of the GOTTHARD albums during his hiatus from KROKUS and helped them gain "platinum" award status multiple times.

Marc Storace did a "Queen" medley with Steve many years ago for one of the most popular Swiss TV shows. " Steve was a kind and friendly person to be or work with. He left us too early, but his remarkable voice will live on in the songs he so passionately sang. Rest In Peace, Steve."

Jan Bayati of German Management Company "Bottom Row Productions" not only manages KROKUS but also managed GOTTHARD from 1996 through 2002 and since June of this year again. Representing both bands, Mr. Bayati wishes Steve's family strength in this difficult time. "I still can't believe it, what a tragedy"

Below the official press release:
Gotthard - singer Steve Lee - fatal accident in America

Las Vegas – The world has lost one of its greatest rock singers: GOTTHARD front-man Steve Lee was killed accidentally during a motorcycle trip in the USA on Interstate 15 between Mesquite and Las Vegas and died at the scene.

The GOTTHARD singer had flown to the U.S. with some biker friends just this weekend to fulfil a long-cherished dream for which he’d never had the time, due to his heavy touring schedule for many years. It was to be two weeks through the states on a Harley Davidson. The 21 Swiss bikers started their journey on Sunday on a total of 12 motorcycles. On Tuesday 5 October, about 50 miles from Las Vegas, the group had stopped at the roadside to put on their rain gear as it had started to rain. On the slippery road, the trailer of a passing truck began to skid. The driver attempted evasive action but his trailer clipped five of the motorcycles parked at the roadside; one of them hit Steve Lee. Rescue services attempted resuscitation but efforts were stopped after 20 minutes. At 16:13 local time, Steve Lee was pronounced dead.
Among the passengers were GOTTHARD bassist Marc Lynn and Lee's girlfriend Brigitte Voss Balzarini. All other fellow riders were unharmed. Steve Lee was 47 years old.


With Steve Lee, we not only lose one of the world's best rock voices but also an extraordinary personality. Despite his enormous success, the Ticino singer had retained a very subtle eye for detail and often impressed the people around him with his sensitive observation. Due to his personality, he had a serious outlook, without losing his sense of humour and lust for life. Steve Lee met his environment with respect but always had, in his gentle way, a very simple, personal touch. He understood like no one else how to enjoy without going too far – to him, alcohol and parties were things he met with level-headedness. The singer sold several million albums throughout his career with GOTTHARD, several of them reaching platinum, double or triple platinum status.

And yet all this bears no relation to the human greatness of Steve Lee on a daily basis.

GOTTHARD – Sänger Steve Lee in Amerika tödlich verunglückt
 

Las Vegas – Die Welt hat gestern einen ihrer größten Rock-Sänger verloren: GOTTHARD-Frontmann Steve Lee verunglückte während einem Motorrad-Trip in den USA auf der Interstate 15 zwischen Mesquite und Las Vegas unverschuldet und verstarb noch am Unfallort.
 
Erst am Wochenende war der GOTTHARD-Sänger zusammen mit einigen motorradbegeisterten Freunden in die USA geflogen, um dort einen lang gehegten Traum wahr werden zu lassen, für den aufgrund voller Tourneepläne viele Jahre lang nie die Zeit war – zwei Wochen lang sollte es auf der Harley Davidson durch die Staaten gehen. Am Sonntag starteten die 21 Schweizer auf insgesamt 12 Motorrädern ihre Reise. Rund 50 Kilometer vor Las Vegas musste die Gruppe am Dienstag, den 5. Oktober, aufgrund einsetzenden Regens am Straßenrand anhalten, um sich für die Weiterfahrt mit entsprechender Kleidung auszurüsten. Auf der rutschig gewordenen Straße geriet der Anhänger eines vorbeifahrenden LKWs ins Schleudern. Der Fahrer versuchte ein Ausweichmanöver, erwischte mit seinem Anhänger jedoch fünf der am Wegesrand parkenden Motorräder, wovon eines Steve Lee traf. Sämtliche Reanimierungsversuche wurden nach 20 Minuten abgebrochen.  Gegen 16:13 Uhr Ortszeit stellten die Rettungskräfte bei Steve Lee den Tod fest. Unter den Mitreisenden befanden sich auch GOTTHARD-Bassist Marc Lynn, sowie Lees Lebensgefährtin Brigitte Voss-Balzarini.
Alle anderen Mitreisenden blieben unverletzt. Steve Lee wurde 47 Jahre alt.
 
Mit Steve Lee geht nicht nur eine der weltbesten Rock-Stimmen von uns, sondern auch eine ganz außergewöhnliche Persönlichkeit. Trotz seines enormen Erfolges hatte sich der Tessiner einen sehr feinsinnigen Blick für Details bewahrt und beeindruckte seine Umwelt oft mit seiner sensiblen Beobachtungsgabe. Dank seiner feinfühligen Art setzte er sich sehr tief mit dem Leben auseinander, ohne dabei jedoch den Sinn für Humor oder Genuss zu verlieren. Steve Lee begegnete seiner Umwelt mit Respekt und hatte in seiner feinen Umgangsweise dennoch stets eine sehr unkomplizierte, persönliche Note. Er verstand es wie kaum ein anderer, zu genießen ohne dabei zu übertreiben – Alkohol oder Feiern waren für ihn Dinge, denen er mit sehr viel Besonnenheit begegnete. Mehrere Millionen Alben hat der Sänger im Laufe seiner Karriere mit GOTTHARD verkauft, diverse Alben wurden mit Platin, Doppel- oder Dreifachplatin ausgezeichnet. Und dennoch stand all dies in keinem Verhältnis zu der menschlichen Größe, die Steve Lee tagtäglich bewies.
