A Swiss rock star was killed by Mesquite yesterday in a motorcycle accident, involving a big rig.
From the web site of Gotthard: "The GOTTHARD singer had flown to the U.S. 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. 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 5 October, 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 16:13 local time, Steve Lee was pronounced dead.
While I never heard of the group, I can understand their fan's pain. I've had some favorite singers die before their time and I was devastated when I heard the news. Harry Chapin and Jim Croce come to mind. So, I know what the band's fan's are going through.
Good luck to the fan and their fan's- it'll be tough going.
