More sad news in the world of Rock. Gotthard singer Steve Lee died yesterday (5th October 2010) in a motorcycle accident in the United States.

He was 47 years old when he died in the accident in Nevada. Long-time Gotthard manager Jan Bayati commented "it is a tragedy." and that he would give more details soon. But the Nevada Highway Patrol have confirmed the death, confirming it happened about 50 miles north of the "Las Vegas Motor Speedway".

He died at the scene after being clipped by a lorry.

This year has been a plague, let's hope no more musicians leave the hall, yet people die every day thanks to mankind. Well, RIP anyway.

I saw few months ago in Rome, Italy, Europe GOTTHARD. It was the best live gig ever.

I arrived at the local and Steve Lee got out from the local to salute me and the other few presents for the concert of GOTTHARD and signed albums, posters, made pictures and spoke too much with the fans arriving massively.

that night was the best one ever. I'll remember it forever.

GOTTHARD missed in Rome since 2004 when the band did the best show ever. in that show of 2004 Steve Lee was ill with the fever but sang as best he can do.

reading this new is for me a bang on my heart.

I NEED TO BELIEVE.....IN ANGELS

Thank you Steve Lee.

Sad news aside, people are gonna have to get used to metal musicians dying, the genre is still relatively new.

Steve is a great singer, I've liked him ever since I heard him with Ayreon. I'm going to have to listen to all my Gotthard albums now.

Black Conundrum - 07.10.2010 at 04:05  
I didn't expect that to happen. I am not very familiar with the Gotthard project, but I heard his vocals on Ayreon's 01011001. He should rest in peace; I don't like traffic accidents.

are these regular pickup trucks or the semi trailer ones?
Xodus - 07.10.2010 at 08:18  
Wow, what horrible news.

I never got to listen to Gotthard but I heard him on Ayreon's 01011001 album and I thought he was amazing. Definitely one of the best vocal performances on the album (his final line in "The Sixth Extinction" literally gave me chills the first time I heard it), and the album includes the likes of Hansi Kürsch, Daniel Gildenlöw, Tom Englund and Jørn Lande. That's a pretty talented bunch, and I thought he was right up there with them.

It was a semi trailer truck that killed him.
Apparently he was at the side of the road putting on a raincoat when a semi trailer jackknifed and hit the parked motorcycles toppling them over and falling on the Gotthard guy and killing him.

Wow, of all the hazards that come with riding a motorcycle, he has to get ruined by a rogue semi. fucking weak. R.I.P.
