Rock Stars Who've Caught Fire Onstage!

Till Lindemann of Rammstein
Rammstein’s first pyrotechnic foray involved pouring gasoline on the stage and then lighting a match. The German industrial-metal outfit’s stage show has come a long way since then. Frontman Till Lindemann is now a licensed pyrotechnician who spends entire songs engulfed head-to-toe in flames. For his trouble, he has burned his ears, his hair and his arms. But since the band frequently incorporates fake accidents into their stage show, it’s unclear just how often he actually gets singed. As bandmate Christoph Schneider puts it, “Till gets burned all the time, but he likes the pain.”
