    Gotthard Official Website

    Steve Lee - Vocals (Deceased 1963-2010)
    Nic Maeder - vocals
    Leo Leoni - Guitar
    Freddy Scherer - Guitar
    Marc Lynn - Bass
    Hena Habegger - Drums

    Gotthard is a Swiss melodic hard rock band I like a lot. Formed in Lugano by Steve Lee and Leo Leoni, their last eleven albums have all reached number 1 in the Swiss album charts, making them one of the most successful Swiss acts ever.

    Sadly, singer/frontman Steve Lee was killed in a freak motorcycle accident on October 5, 2010 in Nevada.
    The band has vowed to carry on and are currently looking for a replacement.

    Albums

    Gotthard (1992)
    Dial Hard (1994)
    G. (1996)
    Open (1999)
    Homerun (2001)
    Human Zoo (2003)
    Lipservice (2005)
    Domino Effect (2007)
    Need to Believe (2009)
    Firebirth (2012)

    With a nearly 20 year career, 9 studio albums and several live and compilation releases, I though I would start with one of my personal favorites, 2005's Lipservice. Most songs are up-tempo and I haven’t heard Lee and co. playing tighter (on a studio album) ever. Great album!

    All We Are



    Dream On



    Anytime Anywhere



    They are also a very good live band and do a fantastic cover of Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song!



    And another personal favorite... Said And Done.

    I have three of their albums, but not Lipservice...I read about their singer dying and that's too bad. Hopefully they find a good replacement and carry on.

    You introduce some of us to yet another very interesting band, Tunez. I don't know how you do it - you must not sleep!

    I especially like Anytime, Anywhere. Good music, great tempo - good song to dance or exercise to, and good lyrics (though somewhat pessimistic, but life gets that way sometimes) - "...the great pretender...". Feels like it could be the tune for a TV show or movie.

    Great band, it's a real shame Steve Lee had to leave us so early, guy had a killer set of pipes. One of the few lads I've ever seen/heard do "Child in Time" justice!

    Mhmm, the man could certainly wail, but he had a certain amount of Coverdale-ish grit about him, which I like.
