That’s right folks — Freddy Steady has left Swiss hard rock vets Krokus and guitarist Fernando Von Arb said the decision “was not of personal nature but solely a professional decision.”
Apparently, Steady doesn’t want to play massive arenas anymore, and instead wants to play small clubs. He wasn’t down with being in a band that played for big crowds…with pyro.
“Krokus was always known to play large venues worldwide. When we get together, compose new songs and play them live we always think big — with a vision on an international level,” says Von Arb. “That sets us apart from many other Swiss bands. Our albums are sold worldwide; then and now.”
Krokus vocalist Marc Storace said this does not mark the end of Krokus. Oh no. “We surely did not reunite in 2008 and carefully planned our comeback just to stop now! We enjoyed three extremely successful and productive years with exciting live shows and our new platinum CD, Hoodoo. This isn’t the beginning of the end for the rest of us. We have so much more planned for the future. We are in charge of our destiny and we will decide when the final curtain call will come. It will be with a big bang and fireworks. But that’s years away from now!”
