Personal characteristics

Lindemann has a powerful onstage presence and a resonant bass voice. One of his signature moves is to partially squat and pound his fist onto his thigh to the beat of the riff.

Each band member is specially instructed on the pieces of pyrotechnical equipment they use on stage. Of Lindemann, bandmate Christoph Schneider says, “Till gets burned all the time, but he likes the pain.” [1] Pyrotechnics is a field of study often thought synonymous with the manufacture of fireworks, but more accurately it has a wider scope that includes items for military and industrial uses. ...

Personal background

Till Lindemann from Live aus Berlin era.

Lindemann was born in Leipzig, but he grew up in the village of Wendisch-Rambow in Schwerin (East Germany). His father, Werner Lindemann, was a poet, and his mother, Brigitte "Gitta" Lindemann, is an artist and writer who has co-written at least one book with her husband. Lindemann has one sister, six years younger than himself. At age 11 he went to a sports school at the Rostock Sport Club, and from 1977-1980 attended a boarding school. His parents divorced in 1975, when he was age 12. Image File history File links TillLindemann2. ... Image File history File links TillLindemann2. ...

In the years 1976-1979, Lindemann was a good swimmer who became junior vice-European champion and was considered to be a swimmer in the Olympics 1980. But he left the sports school in 1979. It is possible that he was thrown out of sports school due to his sneaking out, unaccompanied, of a hotel in Italy on a swimming tour. But he also suffered an injury, a torn abdominal muscle - so either reason could be valid. According to Lindemann, "I never liked the sport school actually, it was very intense. But as a child you don't object".


His first job was at a peat cutting company, but he was fired after three days. He worked as an apprentice carpenter, a gallery technician, and was most well-known as a basket-weaver.


In 1981, Lindemann apparently refused to do his 18 months' compulsory military service and was almost imprisoned because of the refusal.


In 1985, when Lindemann was 22, his first daughter, Nele, was born. Lindemann and Nele's mother married after she was born, but they separated and he has raised Nele alone. Lindemann says, "I used to play drums in a punk band and we had our studio in the house where I lived. Seven years I had been a father raising his daughter, but nowadays I'm sharing the upbringing with her mother, because I'm gone for six months of the year with the band".


The Berlin Wall came down November 9, 1989, and Germany started its path to reunification. On this, Lindemann says, "After the wall had been opened, I drove to West Germany and bought gummy bears and yogurt for my salutation money. But there wasn't anything else".

His father died in November of 1992, of the effects of alcohol. He was buried in the grounds of a church near Wendisch-Rambow. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...


Lindemann had a second daughter with Anja Köseling, his former partner/wife.


In an interview with Richard Zven Kruspe, he stated that Rammstein will keep playing until one of them dies. Paul H. Landers stated in a 2005 interview that Till has a girlfriend who speaks Spanish and helped him write Te quiero puta! ("I love you, whore!").


And in a 2005 interview with the German Playboy, Lindemann stated that he had finally found "a woman he could spend the rest of his life with". For other uses, see Playboy (disambiguation). ...

He is started to play drums for First Arsch, often confused as "First Art" but in literal translation means "First Arse": a play on words perhaps meant to distract the authorities.

Till Lindemann also played one song with a German punkband called Feeling B.

Landers and Christian "Flake" Lorenz all played on the song Lied von der unruhevollen Jugend. Feeling B was the former band of Paul H. Landers and Christian "Flake" Lorenz.

Later in the 1990s, Lindemann began to write lyrics, possibly based on phrases and words from poems that he was beginning to write. He says he "used to drum in a punk band that consisted of bass and drums. We used to work with guest-guitarists, usually Paul and Richard. We did a short tour where I changed instruments with the bassist in the encore, that was such a success, that Richard insisted on starting a project in which I would sing. Other people joined the band but only when I left Schwerin for Berlin did it take serious form".


In 1994, they entered and won a contest in Berlin that allowed them to record a four track demo professionally. Lindemann moved to Berlin. Paul H. Landers formally joined the band, followed by the last member to join, Christian "Flake" Lorenz.

On June 5, 1999 in Worcester, Massachusetts (USA) Lindemann and Christian "Flake" Lorenz were arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. A statement from Sgt. Thomas Radula of the Worcester Police Department stated that Lindemann was simulating sex with Flake onstage "using a phallic object that shot custard over the crowd." They were held and released the following day on $25 bail. After months of legal debate, they were eventually fined $200. In an interview in Stockholm, Till said that Bück dich was his favorite act to do onstage, saying quote, "I like to fuck the keyboarder...

Subsequently, in November 2002 Lindemann's own project, the poetry book Messer, was published. It consists of 54 poems compiled by Gert Hof, who is author of the book Rammstein and has been the band's pyrodesigner for the last seven years [1]. This book was due to be re-printed in 2005 due to a campaign by a fansite. [2].

Quotes

  • Loneliness sometimes gives me a quantity of creativeness - you're drinking another glass of wine and you're feeling even worse. Art doesn't work without pain; art also exists for compensating pain.
  • When I was an adolescent, I was obsessed with having many commercial things, cars, clothes, stupid things. Now that I have all that, I include/understand that the superfluous things can turn to you into a very stupid idiot-type. In East Germany there were very few things, but there was also a feeling of solidarity that no longer exists. Now we are up to the neck in consumption, the ego, the individualism. Now before friendship, it is merchandise.
  • The rolling R's didn't arise deliberately. It originated from itself because in that deep pitch you automatically sing that way. I'm no musician in the actual meaning. I don't know anything about instruments. But I'm supporting our music with my voice and lyrics well. It's a question of illustration, timbre and phonetics. We don't want to - for Heaven's sake - create a t-like style.
  • Love is like a flower; even the most beautiful kind dies.
  • You've got a kind of inner store. When things aren't going well, you just go inside and get a glass of travel preserves for your soul, open it and fill up on it.
