2005 relations with Vader
In March 2005, Krzysztof Raczkowski left Vader. Piotr Wiwczarek, the band's lead singer, said in an official statement on their website:
Doc pretty hard tried to 'fight' against his weaknesses, which were troubles for all of us. Finally he had not prevailed over that battle… All in all, he attempted… Vader today is not just a friendship anymore — it's our life with armies of man involved in music, releases and, first of all, fans waiting for shows or new albums… This is a high responsibility, not too many know about. If a person, even the most talented one, cannot stand it — has to leave… That was Doc's decision as well.
Maurycy Stefanowicz, the guitarist of the band, mentioned Krzysztof's problem with narcotics in an interview in April 2005.
