A powerful, dramatic singer/songwriter with a strong following in Germany, Matthias Reim began his career writing for others (Bernhard Brink, Roberto Blanco, Tina York) before beginning his own singing career in 1990 with the album Reim. A single from the album, "Verdammt, Ich Lieb Dich," spent 16 weeks on top of the German charts, tying the record held by Boney M. Reim continued to release successful albums throughout the '90s, but a partnership with businessman Alfred Reimann (which included investments in everything from computer stores to hair salons) slowly sent Reim into bankruptcy. His personal life was also turbulent, including three failed marriages and four children from four different mothers, including one with the popular German singer Michelle. Reflecting upon these struggles, Reim wrote and released the emotional album MÃ¤nner Sind Krieger in 2007. The German press hailed it as a collection of insightful songs from a true survivor. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
