Official Statement Regarding Death Of GOTTHARD Singer Released

BraveWords.com has received the following press release:

The world has lost one of it's greatest rock singers: GOTTHARD frontman 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 US 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, October 5th, 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 4:13 PM 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.

With Steve Lee, we not only lose one of the world's best rock voices but also an extraordinary personality. Despite his enormous successes, the 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.

As well as the legions of devastated fans, Steve Lee will be greatly missed by all who knew him for his personal greatness outside of his band’s achievements.

GOTTHARD Issue Statement Regarding The Death Of Singer Steve Lee - "The Inconceivable Is A Tragic Reality"


Switzerland's GOTTHARD have issued the following statement regarding the tragic death of singer Steve Lee who was killed in a motorcycle accident in Nevada yesterday (Tuesday, October 5 at 16:13 PM). He was 47 years old.

"Dear fans and friends, the inconceivable is a tragic reality – Steve Lee was killed in an accident yesterday.

Steve 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 US 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.

With Steve Lee, we not only lose one of the world's best rock voices but also a good friend who due to his sensitivity and down-to-earth personality always met the people around him with respect.

It will take some time till we fully understand what has happened.

Our heartfelt thoughts are with his family.

STEVE LEE, chanteur/leader du groupe de Hard Rock Mélodique GOTTHARD est décédé le 05 Octobre 2010 aux USA alors qu'il faisait un voyage à moto avec des amis bikers. Mardi, à 17h45, sur l'Interstate 15 au nord de Las Vegas, le groupe de motards a fait une pause sur la bande d'arrêt d'urgence pour mettre des combinaisons de pluie. Un chauffeur de semi-remorque a perdu le contrôle de son véhicule et a percuté quelques motos dont l'une d'entre elles fut projetée sur Steve Lee. Steve est mort sur le coup.

GOTTHARD - Italy's SpazioRock Reports On One Of Band's Final Shows With Steve Lee; Photo Gallery Available






GOTTHARD singer Steve Lee was killed in a motorcycle accident in Nevada on October 5th. He was 47 years old. Italy's SpazioRock.it was at one of the band's last concerts with Lee, in Lugano, Switzerland on July 17th, 2010.

A photo gallery can be found here. A full report is available here.

Gotthard recently announced a public commemoration ceremony for Lee, scheduled for Sunday, October 17th at 10 AM on the Gotthard Pass Hospice in Switzerland. A eulogy will be held by two Capuchin monks (German / Italian) at about 1 PM.

Official statement of the surviving bike-group members: "On the afternoon of October 5th 2010 our group, consisting of 22 male and female bikers on 12 Harley Davidsons, was on its way from Las Vegas to St. George, Utah, in bright weather.

About 15 miles from Mesquite, a severe thunderstorm began. One of the bikes started to have some technical problems with its ignition, so we stopped on the breakdown lane and switched on our warning lights. The last guy in the group was reminding us to be very careful with the traffic passing by, so we paid attention. At the same time it started to rain more heavily, so the group decided to put on rain gear.

A truck was speeding towards the group. For some inexplicable reason, the very heavy truck crashed into several of our bikes. The impact was so severe that one of the bikes was thrown into the air, hit Steve and crushed him to the ground. The group immediately secured the accident area and started to give him first aid.

At the same time we dialled the emergency number 911 and after a few minutes the first police car arrived. The patrolman had brought a defibrillator and, with our help, he immediately started to apply it. In the meantime, in the pouring rain, we all started working together to try to save Steve's life. A couple of minutes later, a second police car arrived and brought a complete set of first aid equipment. A helicopter also arrived. During all that time resuscitation attempts were maintained. After long minutes of trying, the doctor had to confirm that Steve was dead.

Miraculously, no other person in the group was injured. We are all aware that it could have been any one of us – and it could have even been the whole group.

Together with the local police, our tour guides organised the transport for us all to a nearby hotel in Mesquite. The hotel offered us a quiet room in which we could mourn, talk to each other and cry together.
We all agree that the tour guides prepared and handled our trip very professionally. Our group still trusts the guides 100%.

Steve’s loss is an incredible tragedy for all of us. Together we are trying to get over all the grieving and the pain and to be there for each other. It is a very hard time for all of us.

Steve Lee’s lifelong dream to drive just once through the USA, on a Harley, should have come true during these two weeks. After we started our trip in Los Angeles, we passed Death Valley and Las Vegas. Our next stop would have been St. George in Utah, from where we had planned to head for Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and Monument Valley. This was to have been the place where Steve planned to surprise Brigitte with some very special Indian jewellery. To show her Las Vegas and to enjoy together the special atmosphere there was one of his greatest wishes for the trip.

"One thing is for sure", Brigitte says, "I have never seen Steve as happy as during these last days." She is utterly devastated, but is finding comfort within the group now. We will be forever connected after this tragedy."
