Gotthard's Steve Lee Killed in Roadside Accident


He was pulling over on the roadside together with his motorcycle club when a truck towing a trailer skidded at his direction.

Gotthard frontman Steve Lee has been killed in a roadside crash in Nevada. He was 47. The Swiss singer was taking part in a road trip across the U.S. with other motorcycle enthusiasts when they stopped on the side of a highway approximately 50 miles (80 kilometres) outside of Las Vegas to change into their wet-weather gear.

But the rest stop on Tuesday, October 5 ended in tragedy when a truck towing a trailer skidded and clipped the bikes at the side of the road. Lee died at the scene. His girlfriend Brigitte Voss-Balzarini and Gotthard bassist Marc Lynn are said to have been among the group of bikers present at the time of the crash.

The singer rose to fame in the 1990s with the Swiss rock group and released nine albums with the band. Their chart success in their native Switzerland made Gotthard one of the country's most successful bands of all time.

Chris von Rohr, the bassist for fellow Swiss rock band Krokus, has paid tribute to the musician, telling Germany's Blick, "I am speechless; I don't know even know what to say. I express my deepest condolences to his parents."
