Gotthard Announces Release Of Live Album "Homegrown - Alive In Lugano"
Gotthard has announced the release of a new live album titled “Homegrown – Alive In Lugano“ on the 30th of September. On the 2nd of September, a previously unreleased track entitled ”The Train” with Steve Lee on vocals will be published online.
“Homegrown – Alive In Lugano“ contains a live recording of the band's concert on the 17th of July 2010 in Lugano. The show was one of the last concerts with vocalist Steve Lee, who tragically died during a motorbike trip through the U.S. on October 5th, 2010. Due to the sudden accidental death of Steve Lee, the CD's release was postponed.
“Lugano was where it all began and so the circle is closed of all that we've experienced with our friend Steve Lee,“ comments bassist Marc Lynn. “The memories of the past 20 years on stage with Steve are brought again to life intensively with this album. They reflect the memorable times that we were able to enjoy on the Mount Olympus of Rock'n'Roll.“
The concert in Lugano took place during the local HOG Rally, an annual event organized by Harley Davidson bikers. “Steve was warmer and more cheerful than he had been in a long time,“ guitarist Freddy Scherer remembers. “The chemistry between him and the audience couldn't have been more intense, despite the fact that there were more than 20,000 people standing on the piazza. It is a stroke of good luck that we recorded this memorable concert, for unfortunately it was one of the last ones with Steve.“
“Music has allowed us to travel round the whole world together during the last 20 years,“ guitarist Leo Leoni added. “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.”
