GOTTHARD Bassist Forced To Sit Out Tour Dates

Bassist Marc Lynn from the Swiss hard rock band GOTTHARD will be forced to sit out the group's upcoming tour dates as a result of an injury sustained in a motorbike accident. An Italian bassist will replace Marc until he is able to play again.

Lynn was hospitalized in Switzerland this past weekend after breaking several bones in the accident. Nevertheless, Marc has kept his humor: "The broken leg is not that bad but the broken thumb is not such a nice thing for a bass player," he said.

Nuclear Blast Records released "Domino Effect", the twelfth studio album by GOTTHARD, in North America on September 18, 2007.

Touting eleven Number 1 albums and six Top 10 singles in their career, GOTTHARD has opened for such renowned artists as AC/DC, DEEP PURPLE, BRYAN ADAMS and BON JOVI throughout Europe. The band has also had the honor of performing at the world-famous Montreux Jazz Festival, is two-time winner of its native country's Prix Walo Award, recipient of Monaco's International Music Award, and has had its music featured on the soundtrack to the European television series "Frankie".

The video for the ballad "The Call" can be viewed below.
