About Till Lindemann
Till Lindemann (born 4 January 1963) is a German musician and poet who is the frontman and lead vocalist for the German industrial metal band Rammstein.Biography Lindemann was born in Leipzig, East Germany, but he grew up in the village of Wendisch-Rambow near Schwerin (in East Germany). His father, Werner Lindemann was a well known writer and poet in the GDR (German Democratic Republic) , and his mother, Brigitte "Gitta" Hildegard Lindemann, was a journalist and writer until she retired. Lindemann has one sister; she is six years younger than he. As a child, he occasionally suffered abuse at the hands of his alcoholic father. At age 11 he went to a sports school at the Rostock Sport Club, and from 1977 to 1980 attended a boarding school. His parents divorced in 1975. In 1978 Lindemann was a participant in the European Junior Swimming Championships in Florence, but discontinued the sport soon after. According to Lindemann, "I never liked the sport school actually, it was very intense. But as a child you don't object". Lindemann later worked as an apprentice carpenter, a gallery technician, a peat cutter, and a basket weaver. In 1981, he apparently refused to do his nine months of compulsory military service and was almost imprisoned as a result. In 1985, Lindemann's 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". Lindemann has a second daughter, Marie Louise, with Anja Köseling. An interview with Richard Kruspe revealed that Till has at least four children. Lindemann started to play drums for First Arsch, who released an album titled Saddle Up, and played one song ("Lied von der unruhevollen Jugend") with a punk band called Feeling B (which was the former band of Rammstein members Paul H. Landers and Christian "Flake" Lorenz). In the 1990s, Lindemann began to write lyrics. In 1994, the trio entered and won a contest in Berlin that allowed them to record a four track demo professionally. Lindemann moved to Berlin. In November 2002 Lindemann's 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. In a radio interview in 2004, Lindemann stated that he wants to retire at 50 to spend more time with his children.
