The band Rammstein is famous all over the world. It was officially formed back in 1994. The group members came together in Berlin. However, the story of Rammstein began much earlier.
The guitar player Richard Z. Kruspe wanted to become a rock star since he was 5 years old. The future celebrity was a big fan of KISS. When he grew up, Richard bought a guitar abroad. He was planning to sell it in Germany and earn money. But then Kruspe suddenly changed his mind.
He started playing the guitar trying to impress a girl. Even though Richard has never taken guitar lessons, his improvised melody made a good impression on his friend. She complimented the young man. This helped Richard realize that he wanted to keep trying to become a celebrity. He understood that learning how to play the guitar on his own is hard. So he enrolled at music school. The teachers were impressed with Kruspe’s determination. He could play up to six hours a day.
Soon Richard decided to form a band, inspired by the success of the legendary KISS. He wanted to combine industrial electronic music with hard rock. The guitar player began performing with such little known bands as Orgasm Death Gimmick. He soon met Till Lindemann, who was a drummer at First Arsch.
