About Christoph Schneider
Christoph Schneider began playing the drums as a teenager, mostly playing punk, hard rock and metal music. He later formed the band Rammstein with Till Lindemann (vocals), Flake Lorenz (keyboards), Richard Z. Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar) and Oliver Riedel (bass).
The bands' first album ''Herzeleid'' was released in 1995 and the band has blown up onto the international scene since - earning millions of sold records and extensive tours all over the world.
''Pushing the limits is what Rammstein is all about... it's why our band exists''. ''I'm a drummer when I'm playing the drums. When I'm not playing the drums, I'm just some other guy. I want to be a drummer... to stay a drummer. So, I play all I can.''
