Hans Ziller  

 

 

 

Hans Ziller (born May 18, 1958) is the lead guitarist, backing vocalist and primary composer (with Claus Lessmann) of the German ‘80s melodic hard rock band Bonfire. He founded the band called Cacumen (later Bonfire) as a teenager in 1972. He have appeared on all of the band's albums, except Point Blank (1989) and Knock Out (1991). In 1989 in the middle of working on Bonfire's third album Point Blank - which, like the earlier albums, was produced by master producer Michael Wagener - Hans Ziller left the band because of insurmountable differences with the management and began a project of his own called "EZ Livin'".
