Gotthard - Singer Killed In Motorcycle Accident


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.

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.

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.
