Lindemann is best known for the iconic industrial metal outfit Rammstein. Rammstein is legendary in the music industry for their elaborate stage shows. Anchored with huge set pieces, pyrotechnics and one of the most stunning light shows, Rammstein bring along countless other props while injecting political undertones into their outfits and other stage gear.

All of this is tied together with heavy-hitting music and Lindemann’s memorable bass voice.

Bild reassures us that Lindemann is currently feeling “better” and his life is no longer in danger. Whether that is to be believed remains to be seen. We wish a speedy recovery for Lindemann and hope he can get back and tour with Rammstein and Lindemann soon enough. 

Lindemann is one of many celebrities that have been diagnosed with coronavirus including Tom Hanks, Idris Elba, Slayer‘s Gary Holt and Crown The Empire’s Brandon Hoover. Unfortunately, it was reported that You actor Mark Blum passed away from the complications related to the virus on March 26.

More on coronavirus

Gary Holt, the legendary and at times controversial guitarist of Slayer and Exodus might have coronavirus. In a recent social media post, Holt said he is showing the symptoms and is now self-quarantining. 

Holt last made headlines for re-releasing his “Kill The Kardashians” shirt and calling Tekashi 6ix9ine a “little rainbow brite asshole.”

Gary Holt is used to making headlines. That is a guy who makes controversial shirts, pics and any form of merch really. The guy makes guitar pics with all of the faces of the Kardashians with upside-down crosses on their foreheads.

Now though, Gary Holt is making headlines for another reason. The legendary guitarist probably has coronavirus.

In a recent Instagram post, Holt said he is showing all of the symptoms and is remaining isolated with his wife. He says that the saddest thing is he can’t see his grandkids, and, in typical rockstar fashion, no beer. 

So I’ve been locked away with @lisaholt777 , suffering from all the symptoms of Corona, without the beer! Mildly sick, better today after repeatedly waking up soaked in sweat last night. Self monitoring with my better half, and unfortunately, won’t be able to visit my grandkids until I’m symptom free for seven days. Ugh. Movie time, binge watching TV, and waiting this out!

Holt shared another update a few days later. He posted about the test being uncomfortable. Unfortunately, coronavirus results aren’t available until 7-10 days after the test so he’s still unsure if he is a confirmed case or not.

So @lisaholt777 and I got tested today, seven to ten days wait for results. Sucks! And the probe, I swear they require a bit of your brain, they shoved that thing WAY up there and it sucked! Very unpleasant but very happy we’ve been tested. And the dude was very impressed with our masks! Left over from the Camp fire, due to the massive smoke. 

We hope Holt, Lindemann and everyone else that is suffering gets better soon.
