Krokus – As Long As We Live
Documentary, 78 min.
by Reto Caduff
Switzerland, January 2004
With over 10 million records sold, 80's hard rock gods “Krokus” are still the most successful Swiss band ever making it big in the USA and England. Band, former members, managers, record execs and groupies recall the unbelievable story of five guys from small town Solothurn in Switzerland who left their cozy homeland in the late 70's to rock the world – and the consequences they suffered of living the dream. A Swiss ”Spinal Tap”. Far from your average “rockmentary” Krokus – As Long As We Live is the cautious tale of a 30 years rollercoaster ride through music history with all the ingredients of great dramas: broken friendships, illness, drugs, sex, fights, overblown egos, money and lots of naivité. It is only rock'n'roll - but it has changed the lives of our protagonists forever.
