Rammstein drummer Christoph Schneider has commented on the sexual assault allegations against frontman Till Lindemann.
Lindemann is currently under prosecutorial investigation in Berlin, and his bandmates shared his “personal feelings and thoughts” on social media.
In a message (translated from German), 57-year-old Christophe said: “Dear friends, I would like to share with you my personal feelings and thoughts. The accusations of the last few weeks has deeply shook us as a band and me as a band.” “And certainly so are our fans. I am shocked at what has been shared about our singer on social media, in the press and in print.” It’s an emotional ebb and flow for us band members and crew.”
“No, I don’t think anything criminal related[such as using knockout drops]has happened. No, I don’t think anything illegal has happened, I haven’t seen anything like that, “I’ve never heard anything like that from anyone.” “Anyone in our 100-man crew is fine. All I heard at Till’s party was that the adults were celebrating together.” Even so, it seems that things are happening that I personally think are not okay, even if they are legally okay.”
“A particular organization has grown that transcends the limits and values of other band members. We’ve distanced ourselves and created our own bubble with our own people, our own parties, our own projects.
“It definitely made me sad. I’ve always wanted to give my private guests a good time and I still believe it until he tells us he wants to. But how exactly do these guests do this?” In some cases, what he imagined was different from what he imagined.” The wishes and expectations of the women who just came forward were probably not met, and according to their statements, they no longer had control. It is said that he was on the verge of a situation where he could not do it and felt uncomfortable.
“I have sympathy for her and I have sympathy. (You may have to wait for a security guard to open it.) All bottles are sealed and in full view of guests having just opened them, or opened them themselves.
“We want all of our guests to feel comfortable and safe. That’s our standard, so it’s unfortunate that some didn’t feel that way.”
“We have the best fans in the world and they all deserve to be treated with respect! very sorry.
“We don’t want this public controversy about our band to go to extremes. Neither the brutish social media that has yet been tamed into our society, nor the ability of women in their mid-twenties to assert themselves. I don’t want the paternalistic tendency to deny it to go to extremes.” -Because you make firm decisions about your sexuality and never blame the victim, people will know what happened to them. Continue dating if you keep talking about it. I want our band to think and process calmly and coolly. And all gathered, 6 people. we stand united. ”
Universal Music has suspended all marketing and promotion of the band pending an investigation, and previously told The New York Times: case. “
