GOTTHARD – Steve Lee’s dream will live on

GOTTHARD –  Steve Lee’s dream will live on  - 2011-09-28

2011-09-28 - Day of death has its first anniversary on the 5th of October – Steve will live on through the live album “Homegrown” and the continuation of the US bike tour

Lugano – GOTTHARD will release the long-since announced and highly anticipated live album entitled “Homegrown – Alive In Lugano” on the 30th of September. The album comes out only a few days before the first anniversary of Steve Lee’s day of death on the 5th of October. At the same time, bassist Marc Lynn has already travelled to the USA to follow Lee’s dream through: in commemoration of the exceptional artist he will drive along the route again that was planned one year ago, together with the other friends that were present on the fateful day in 2010.

Together with Marc Lynn, his wife Anja and 18 other friends, the helmet that Steve Lee wore to the last will go on the journey with them. Lee had bought him shortly before his death in the USA and wore him on his last day. Since then, it acts as a memento for his parents – now it’ll go on a motorbike trip one last time, in place of Steve Lee. “The trip shall help us digesting the inexplicable and finally putting Steve’s death behind ourselves“, states bassist Lynn. “We’ll remember him, cry over him and for sure will be able to laugh at many a beautiful memories.“

The album “Homegrown – Alive In Lugano” that will be released on the 30th of September also bears witness to strong amicable ties. It contains audio footage of the concert that took place on the 17th of July in Lugano, which was recorded over the course of the band’s concert in their hometown. It was one of the last concerts with Steve Lee.

“Music has allowed us to travel round the whole world together during the last 20 years“, guitarist Leo Leoni summarises. “In doing so, we've shared lots of unforgettable moments that rank among the best times of our lives. Anyhow, returning to Lugano has always been something special. It's the place we belong to and where we have strong and deep roots.”

“Homegrown – Alive In Lugano” marks the end of an era for GOTTHARD. Currently, the band is searching for a new singer and will soon start a new chapter in the band's history.

Meanwhile, Marc Lynn and his companions experience what has always been Steve Lee’s dream: riding the motorcycle through the Southern states of the US for two weeks. He was only able to live this dream for one thousand kilometres. “We owe him bringing this ambition to an end now“, comments Marc Lynn. “That trip has really been his biggest dream.“
