Tragic news:

Tuesday 5th October, Las Vegas – The world has lost one of its greatest rock singers:
GOTTHARD front-man Steve Lee was killed in an accident 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 last weekend to fulfill 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 48 years old.
