Right, Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm very sorry and with deep regret I have to say the Crusaders - after 13 years, four great records (i.m.h.opinion), one single and many concerts - call it a day. There are many reasons for it but in the end it was a very personal decision. It was a great time, we met so many top people and I'm very proud of our work.
So I'd like to take the chance to thank all the lads who played in the band - especially Timo, wo started the band with me and accompanied me all the years and the best line up we had with Thilo and Hubi. Also thanks to Sandro, Flori, Zimmi and André who supported us during the last years. My respect also goes to all the fans, promoters, fanzines and labels who made us go on and had the guts to let us play - among them the guys from Brno, Torti or Toni.
No thanks whatsoever to the bands, promoters, fanzines, labels and other people who slagged us down, ignored us, abused our trust or were too cowardly to let us play with cheap excuses but had no problems letting other bands on stage as long as they bring enough money.
so again, thank you, if you don't know all our records - check them out, they are worth listening to, all the best and we'll see each other
