Top 10 Things Related to Hansi Kürsch to Be mentioned at the Eve of His 50th Birthday

Metal_Treasure
Hansi is a metal musician born on August 10, 1966 in Germany and he turns 50 next week.

He's been around for over 30 years - singer, lyricist, co-composer, band leader and bassist for Blind Guardian. He's been working really hard and non-stop for over 30 years (no breaks, hiatus) but his voice was still amazing on the 2015 Blind Guardian album. Moreover, he formed a second band (Demons & Wizards), took part in some other side-projects (Ayreon) and provided guest vocals for many metal bands.

Of course you can vote and comment but you can also add items that describe him as a musician and personality, such as:
- your opinion (example - He's got a very powerful voice, Hansi is my favorite metal singer)
- songs you like (by Blind Guardian and Demons & Wizards)
- lyrics you like (he wrote all the lyrics for these two bands so any line you like has been written by him)
- facts about Hansi
- jokes about him

The Contenders

11 Miracle Machine - Blind Guardian Miracle Machine - Blind Guardian

I am happy his voice is aging better than his looks. This song is from the 2015 album and he probably sang it in 2014 when he was 48 but his voice sounds so youthful. This is an incredible achievement for a singer who's been singing tough metal material for 30+ years non-stop. - Metal_Treasure

12 "Who'll grant me wings to fly? And will I have another try?" - At The Edge Of Time, Blind Guardian
13 He doesn't have a great voice - he's got a full choir of great voices

When he sings different vocal lines to create vocal harmonies, it sounds like a choir but he is actually the only singer. It’s lots of hard work and singing but I totally love the result. - Metal_Treasure

14 His parents were very poor (working class family)
15 He can beat you even at the epic levels of ‘Dungeons & Dragons’

He is a massive fan of this game so he also wrote songs about it. Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) is a fantasy role-playing game and the term epic level refers to a very high level of play. - Metal_Treasure

16 Crimson King - Demons & Wizards Crimson King - Demons & Wizards
17 "I'll dare you, come out, you coward, now, it's me or you" - Time Stands Still (at The Iron Hill), Blind Guardian
18 He succeeded to introduce the iron German discipline even in a metal band - Blind Guardian members are not allowed to have even a beer 24 hours before live shows V 1 Comment
19 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
20 "So what can we do with our lives when it all begins? It's hard and It's cruel" - Thorn, Blind Guardian
