Biography

Till Lindemann (b. 4 January 1963) is a German musician who is most notable as being the lead-vocalist for the German (“Dance metal”) band Rammstein.

Lindemann has a powerful onstage presence. One of his signature moves is to partially squat and pound his fist onto his thigh to the beat of the riff, in the manner of a deranged blacksmith. It has been said that one of his distinguishing characteristics is his tendency to roll his “R”s.

Lindemann is a qualified pyrotechnician. After an accident at the Treptow arena in Berlin on September 27, 1996, where a burning stage prop fell into the audience, Rammstein began employing a professional pyrotechnical crew and Lindemann has learned and trained with them. Each band member is specially instructed on the pieces of pyrotechnical equipment they use on stage.

According to Lindemann, he likes Christopher Joseph “Chris” Isaak, Marilyn Manson, Jean-Michel André Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Michael Gordon “Mike” Oldfield, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, Placebo, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, KMFDM and jazz music in the park on a Sunday afternoon. He says, “for me Kraftwerk was the first real German band.”

At one time, he did have his left ear pierced, twice, but has worn no earring for a long time. You can see the two holes in his ear in most videos and pictures. Lindemann also has his left eyebrow pierced. He has no known tattoos. Lindemann has stated that he is an atheist.
