Just when I thought nothing would surprise me anymore about Rammstein, came another shocker. Richard Kruspe was caught urinating in public while he was drunk in Belegrad.
Reports say that Kruspe was so intoxicated that he could not wait to go to a proper restroom so he ended up slouching against a fence outside the bar and urinitating in broad daylight.
As a result he was sentenced to 5 months in prison (Spandau Prison in Berlin). For this period Axel Rudi Pell will replace him as a backup guitarist. Axel will join the band for the first time during the gig in Berlin on May 21st, 2010 and will promote his upcoming album “The Crest”.
For those of you who are really desperately seeking to see the drummer of Rammstein, go to “Musikmesse 2010, drummers on stage”. You’ll have a chance to watch your idol.

“Jonas Akerlund (sic) directed the Gaga promo. He has form. At the saucy end of the scale, his videos for German metallers Rammstein make Telephone look like an episode of Andy Pandy.”

Multi-Platino Hard Rocker Discovers SABIAN© Sound Innovation
Christoph Schneider, drummer with multi-platinum German concept rockers Rammstein, has switched to SABIAN cymbals. A founding member of the group – which tours and charts its high-powered, dark humored music and dramatic stage presence around the world – Schneider said the change came after recording Rammstein’s latest CD, Liebe ist fur alle da (Love is There for Everyone).
“I simply wanted to hear something new and powerful,” he said in Berlin. “I compared all the major brands, and I switched to SABIAN because of the many different sounds, which are outstandingly unique, very human, and in some cases, brutally earthy. First I chose HHX, which sounds very dark and loud, like Rammstein. These cymbals also look incredible, especially the O-Zone, with all those holes. But then I discovered more… and more, so I’m playing also APX and AAX. These cymbals really do make me play better, but most importantly, I like the sound.”
Added SABIAN European Product Specialist Christian Koch: “Like Tomas Haake of Meshuggah and Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater, Christoph Schneider has discovered that SABIAN innovation lets drummers play and sound better.”
Sonor is proud to announce that from now Christoph Schneider uses exclusive Sonor Drums and hardware!
Christopher is most probably known as a drummer of Rammstein, the internationally most successful German band, according to the “Billboard Magazine”. With countless awards and millions of records sold Rammstein have continued with more than 400 concerts in over 35 countries worldwide. Christopher is a founding member, the band was created in 1994.
His first contact with Sonor was already when he was a child, when he sat behind the drums. At the time he fell after extensive tests with the “Giant Step” series bass drum pedals in “love”.
In September, Christopher went on his way to Auchinleck-Aue to manufacture it, and finally, of course, also extensively test it in various tests.
His choice was very fast on the “Delite” series from North American maple. To decorate two 22×17.5 “bass drum, 10×7″ and 12×8 “Tom Toms, 16×16″ and 18×16 “floor toms his setup. In addition to a matching 12×5 “Side Snare from the” Delite “series, he also uses the bronze-(AS 07 1406 BRB) and Cottonwood Maple model (AS 07 1406 CM) from the” Artist “series. Completes the set with stands from the 600 series, a GDPR 3 Double Pedal from the Giant Step Series, as well as various basic arm system accessories such as an X-hat holder.
