In the autumn of 2018, both greats, long-term colleagues and friends began to meet regularly for preparation Gott’s autobography. They had meetings at Stairs at home, near the maternity hospital at Apolinář, several. “And at one point, Dad wished that if Lada managed to bring together all the living members of his former orchestra, he would like them to stand with him on stage once more,” she told the daily Aha! Slavík’s daughter Dominika Gottová (47), whom his father then confided in.
The ideal event for the fulfillment of wishes was the upcoming Gotta’s concert in the Prague O-arena, where he wanted to celebrate the approaching 80th birthday with his fans in June 2019. But before Christmas 2018, Karel learned that acute leukemia had fully erupted in him and his plans had failed. Gott and his management canceled the concert in the O₂ arena well in advance, and Slavík sang only smaller pre-arranged events. He was still seen with Štaidl in the spring of 2019, when they continued to work on the planned autobiography. Then the Master died in October.
