Krokus Singer Pays Tribute To Gotthard’s Steve Lee At Rock Meets Classic Show

January 16, 2011

Krokus singer Marc Storace recently paid tribute to Gotthard’s Steve Lee at a Rock Meets Classic show. Steve Lee passed away in a motorcycle accident on October 5th.

Marc Storace performs some “classic Krokus” songs with a “classical symphony orchestra” during the Rock Meets Classic shows. Other vocalists featured on the Rock Meets Classic bill include Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Lou Gramm (Ex-Foreigner), Les Holroyd (Barclay James Harvest) and Dan McCafferty (Nazareth).

Recently Marc was asked by a journalist whether he’s afraid to tackle the mix between rock and classic or whether it is more so a challenge for him and he replied, “Afraid? Not at all, to the contrary! I learned about classical renditions when I was just born. My mother played on the piano everything from Beethoven to Mozart when I still was in her womb. My oldest sister was a piano teacher and played to ballet. At that time I was more interested in Pop and Soul music and then came Rock’n’Roll!

When the Beatles, Rolling Stones and a couple of other bands started to integrate classical elements into their songs, I really liked that a lot. Deep Purple recorded an entire album with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and later on Jeff Lynne set a new standard for “Rock meets Classic” with his Electric Light Orchestra.”
