An interesting fact is that Zimmer has no academic training. After a few lessons given by his piano teacher, Hans decided not to attend the lessons, as he was more concerned with improvisation than studying formally. As a young man, Zimmer moved to England where he went through some difficult years; he was active in a number of rock bands; one of the most famous groups in which Zimmer played was the group founded in 1977 called Buggles, which produced the video named “Video Killed the Radio Star” (1979), but he was engaged in various musical spheres, which later gave him a lot of advantages while being active in the film industry.

Zimmer started composing for films in a productive collaboration with another composer, Stanley Myers; it was a very successful start which evolved into an outstanding career which brought not only fame but also wealth. In 1988, he began his solo career in the film industry, debuting with the music for the film “Rain Man”, for which he received his first nomination for an Academy Award. In the ’90s, Zimmer wrote the music for several successful films, such as “The Lion King” , “The Thin Red Line”, and at the turn of the century – “Gladiator”. “The Last Samurai” in 2003, directed by Edward Zwick, was the hundredth film for which he wrote the music. On the whole, his composing for over 150 feature films has added significant revenues to his net worth, as well as made Hans Zimmer famous world-wide.

Aside from the Academy Award, Hans Zimmer won two Golden Globe Awards, three Classical BRIT Awards, four Satellite Awards, three Saturn Awards, two WAFCA Awards, four Grammy Awards and many others, and in 2010, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In addition, Zimmer has his own record company named Remote Control Productions. Initially, together with Jay Rifkin he owned the company Media Ventures, located in Los Angeles. The record companies have also increased the outright size of Hans Zimmer’s net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of the composer, Hans Zimmer was married to Vicki Carolin from 1982 to ’92, with whom he has a son. He is now married to Suzanne with whom he has three children. The family resides in Los Angeles.
