Rammstein’s Till Lindemann Accused of Assault
Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann has been accused of assaulting a man at a hotel bar in Germany, Deutsche Welle reports.
The altercation is said to have taken place at Bayerischer Hof, a five-star luxury hotel in Munich, following Rammstein’s June 8 performance at Olympiastadion. A 54-year-old Hamburg resident, also staying at the hotel, reportedly insulted Lindemann, although how or why is currently unknown. Things apparently got verbal, and then they got physical. The man was left with a bloody nose, while “Lindemann disappeared into his hotel room.”
Police have confirmed that the fracas occurred, but have not released any additional details.
Rammstein’s is scheduled to perform tonight at Rudolf-Harbig-Stadion in Dresden, so regardless of whatever may or may not have happened, at least it hasn’t derailed the band’s current European tour. The trek is in support of Rammstein’s recently released, self-titled album, which is their first new offering in a decade.
Although one probably would not expect a fancy-schmancy five-star luxury hotel to be the scene of such an incident, it’s actually the second time Bayerischer Hof has made headlines for hosting a rock star brawl — the first was in 2002, when Oasis singer Liam Gallagher got into it with some of the other guests and, eventually, the cops.
