Interview with Tokio Hotel
Music-his.com article

February 10, 2011 is a memorable day for the fans of TOKIO HOTEL. Yes, the long-awaited TOKIO HOTEL finally come to Japan. Thus, HIS has a special interview with the four guys from TOKIO HOTEL who as the Goodwill Ambassador for the 150th anniversary of Germany. Here are the answers we got from them about visiting Germany.

HIS: Your four guys were born in Magdeburg, what do you think of there?
Georg: Of course, it's a great city!! (laugh)
--laugh together--
Bill: In fact, there is nothing to visit.
Gustav: Yeah, it's just a common village, nothing special.

HIS: Well, are there any places that you'd like to introduce?
Tom: Well...
Georg: There is a cathedral and some other historic churches, and we often went to the shopping mall.
Tom: And, yes, the Hundertwasser!
Together: Oh, yeah...the Hundertwasser!!!

HIS: What is that?
The agent: It's a building built by an Austrian architect, and this architect was a little bit like Gaudi. (A Spanish architect)
Gustav: Most of the buildings in Magdeburg have a colourful outside.
Bill: That's all the stuffs that deserve to see.
Georg: And you can finish your trip in 30 minutes.

HIS: It seems that's really a small city...(laugh). Then, what if a Japanese want to visit Germany, to the other cities like Munich or Berlin, Do you have anything to recommend?
Bill: Berlin and Hamburg are good choices if you want to visite Germany.
Gustav: Talking about Munich, there is a OctoberFest!
Tom: Yeah, the OctoberFest is awesome.
Georg: That's a grand festival and was very alive.

HIS: Oh, I really want to be there for once. By the way, I heared that Georg was born in Halle but not in Magdeburg, is that true?
Georg: Yes, I was born in Halle, but I only lived there for 2 or 3 years.
Bill: And Halle is also a very small city. (laugh)
Georg: Yeah, even when comparing with Magdeburg, it's nothing special to say. (laugh)
--laugh together--

HIS: Oh, I see. Then the next question, what's your favourite city in Germany?
Bill: It's definitely Hamburg. Why do I say that? It's because I have lived there for a period of time. and I miss there. Moreover, there are great natural sceneries near the countrysides. Although, sometimes the weather is not that pleasure and it rains and blows a lot, but it's still a very pretty city. In fact,it might also be the most beautiful city in Germany.

HIS: Then, as a tourist city, is Hamburg also worthy of a stroll?
Bill: Hum...yeah, I once lived there and I really like that place, but I was not going there for tourism. Whatever, I think that's a good place.

HIS: Thank you so much, then Tom, what do you think of there?
Tom: In fact, I prefer Cologne. You can see people there are jolly and lively. Though I never lived in Cologne, hum, I guess I'll live there some day. It's a good place with so many bright and open-minded people and I love there. But it's more of travelling than living. (laugh)

HIS: Oh, I see, thank you. Georg, how do you think?
Georg: I think Berlin is the best place for now. It's an attractive and exciting city where contains varied cultures from all over the world. What's more, there are many nightclubs. And you can devote youself into them for the whole night long.

HIS: Except the nightclubs, is there any other place to go?
Georg: Of course, indeed, there are so many sightseeings.
Bill: Yes, there are several tour routes in Berlin.
Georg: Both history and culture are the highlights and it's a perfect tourist city.

HIS: Awesome, no wonder Berlin is the capital! then, Gustav, have you got a favourite spot?
Gustav: Honestly, I like Magdeburg.
Together: (laugh) Really?
Gustav: Yeah, everything you guys mentioned just now can be found in Magdeburg. And of course, including the Octoberfest, it's totally a city for travelling.
Bill: But if you go to there for sightseeing, it's terrible without a bicyle... (laugh)
--laugh together--

HIS: Are there any vehicles in Magdeburg!?
Tom: No, there aren't.
Gustav: Indeed, we have taxis and double-deck buses which is the same with London's. But we have only one is use for going sightseeing. After that you have to take a boat, which is along the Elbe River but it's absolutely comfortable and amazing!
Bill: Yeah, it's said that the most interesting place in Magdeburg are Georg's and Gustav's houses.
--laugh together--

HIS: Okay, let's put aside the idea of going whose home first, HIS is planing to make a tour route about TOKIO HOTEL.
Together: Really?
Tom: Is it a tour to Magdeburg?

HIS: It includes Magdeburg and other places you recommend or concern you, or some memorable places. And What other good places except Magdeburg are worth playing?
Everybody: It sounds good! Wow, marvelous! (Everyone looks excited)
Tom: And what about LA? (laugh)
Gustav: Hmmm…
Bill: Do not miss Gröninger Bad if you want to know the history of Tokio Hotel.

HIS: What's that?
Bill: It's the club we first met!

HIS: So the fans might visit there at least once!
Everybody: And something more, it must be fun to visit our old schools.

HIS: That's cool! And do not forget telling us the names of the schools.

Each of them says the names of the schools.

For the best tour route

HIS: Thank you. The next question. Bill and Tom are living in LA now. Have you got the plan about giving concerts in LA?
Bill: No. We are focusing on Japan now, so we are not going to promote in other countries, and our new album has just released. Now we are recording songs and looking for new inspiration. So…hmmm, I don't know when to give concerts. We all pool our ideas to compose new songs now.

HIS: So when will the next album to be completed and released?
Tom: It's hard to say. Maybe half a year later, or maybe 5 years later. We can't decide the specific date and now we are looking for inspiration. We are exercising so to speak.

HIS: We are expecting the next concert and CD! At last, for improving Germany's tourism, can you say something to Japanese fans?
Bill: Sure. Hmm, Germany is a very good country, though the weather is not that good. Don't forget your umbrella!
Tom: And the bars! Night bars and German beer are the best!
Georg: And also the Autobahn! It will be very interesting.
Gustav: There seems to be speed limit when driving in Japan, but there's no limit in Germany so you can drive freely.
Bill: All we said are the most interesting things in Germany.

HIS: Thank you very much, Tokio Hotel!

Hello <3

Interview with Tokio Hotel - Part 6
Ellegirl.jp article

You four started your band activities since the age of 14, and now there were changes that you mixed something electronic in some parts of the new album, but also something that you kept all the time. So, what's the chief part and the most binding part of your band?
Tom: Basically, it is consisting of the drum, the bass guitar and the guitar. The guitar with the addition of Bill's voice that have never been changed. Bill's voice wasn't sounded like before anymore, though, his feeling of singing never change. You can see our changes from Devilish to Humanoid.

So, what kind of music that you drumer and bassist think that is similar to TOKIO HOTEL's.
Gustav: The rhythm of drum and bass. (laughed)
Georg: It's hard to answer. Because we are who TOKIO HOTEL are.
Tom: (nipped in) I think we were very lucky. When creating music in the studio, we wrote down the feeling in our brain, but not meditated it first and did. I tkink it's lucky that we did such a thing, that we created awesome music. Without luckiness like this, we can't work out any good music at all.
Bill: (seriously) However, not all the audiences would love our music.
The most important of all it's that "we love our music". Because that were created by us, they were our own music. We worked the songs for ourselves but not the fans. And it's lucky that they can be loved by our fans. Fans love our songs and they want to share them with the others, but sometimes I didn't want this to happen. (Another meanings: Bill wants we to buy their albums.) Say so, though, in order to work out songs to the fans' taste, not only will we keep our music concept, but also attach importance to what we like.

Awesome!!! You have such a firm concept in your heart. TOKIO HOTEL is so popular around the world now, so who you will cooperate with in the future.
Bill: I dreamed of cooperating with Steven Tyler, the lead singer of Aerosmith. I don't know what will happen in the future, but hope that I can meet many people and cooperate with them. A secret plan will be pulled off lately, but yet I can't say a word about it.

And which producer you want cooperate with.
Bill: Like I have just said, I have to meet him firstly to make sure if we have ideas that in common. You may thought that this man is cool, I want to cooperate with him, but sometimes your thought would be overturned when you meet each other. The most important is that you two have ideas in common.

We have received questions from the fans, for example, the single "Don't Jump" released in Japan, too. There are many fans like this song, will this song on the list of the shows that you will give in Japan later?
Bill: Really? (happily) Of course. Because...
Tom: (nipped in) Actually, I love this song very much!!!
Bill: (nipped in) As we have so much good songs, it's hard to choose songs each time.
Tom: (nipped in again) Since there are so much good songs, it's not enough to give a concert in 2 hours. (the two of them ran comments and laughed in concert)
Bill: (became loudly) We also remixed those former songs and performed on the concerts.

It's odd that Bill wanted to talk calmly and clearly in the first place, but became funny suddenly. And his twin brother, Tom, is a funny guy, too.
We will keep on interviewing, and the next one will be the last one.

Hello <3

Interview with Tokio Hotel
InRock Magazine (Japan) Vol. 327

imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com imagebam.com

I want to try something new except music with Tom.

This month, Adimission free (page 84-85) published the articles written by readers who were interviewed with Tokio Hotel, because it's initial to look into from fans' view. Overwhelmed by Bill, among those German all the people were so high. Beyond that, Bill and Tom kept talking. It was very cheerful.

Everyone was looking forward to your arrival.
Tokio Hotel: So were we.
Bill: The trip to Japan has been our dream for a long time. We are really grateful for coming to Japan finally and extremely excited. It was quite good to come here.

I guess you guys had the same answers when you were asked by South American reporters. (Laugh)
Bill: Yeah! We have told people that some day we would go to Japan for many times. What is more, our band name is "Tokio Hotel", so we want to go to Japan as soon as possible.
Tom: But when the day came, it was beyond imagines, because Tokyo was certainly too far away.
Georg: When we gave a name to our band, we wanted to figure something spectacular out. It seems that it should be a place that we can not even see and reach in the dream. And finally we decided to name it "Tokio Hotel". But we finally got to Tokyo. (Laugh)

Well, all the fans want to know more about you guys in limited times. Firstly, Tom, you said making an album was a time-consuming job when you received our interviews last time. So the next album in 2011 must be not easy. Do you think the same way right now?
Tom: Sure.

Why is it?
Tom: Actually we should have made the new song in the recoding studio at this moment, but we decided to come to Japan, actually it is not in our plan. Next time we hope we can prepare well.

Seriously? We can believe you, can't we? (Laugh)
Tom: Of course! But we have other plans in 2011 to look forward to. After all these, we can finally come back to the studio to continue writing songs. So we don’t know when the next album will be released, either. It's not that we don't like traveling, but it seems that we don't have enough time to compose in 2011.
Bill: That's because we want to make some albums of high quality. We really want to show everyone the best part of what we create in daily time, so it is necessary to stay at the studio for a long time. As we compose, we have to discuss which way is better, which sound is better and so on.
Tom: Yeah, we have been on tours this year. Once we get back to the studio, we will think about what to do next, accumulating our thoughts and collecting all kinds of inspiration. All of these are very time-consuming.
Bill: So we are not sure when we can release the next album. May be next year or the year after next. But we will immediately inform you if there is any sign. (Laugh)

How long do you spend in making a new album usually?
Tom: It all depends. It always depends on how many songs we record. It's not the problem we need to think about. Sometimes we thing it's okay after we record 18 songs, while we may not be satisfied and add something else even after we record 50 songs. Therefore it lies on our mood of that moment. If we gave you a deadline, it would be an assumption.

Oh, I see. I went to Germany and Paris the other day. I know how popular you are in Europe. You are definitely most popular.
Tokio Hotel: Yeah, it is the same in Paris.

In the first time when we interviewed Bill and Tom by phone, both of them were very friendly and easy to talk. I was so shocked. So no matter how popular you are, you are still natural and low profile. Is it your principle?
Bill: Yes, it's most important for us. We founded this band naturally and we are also good friends. We have been together for almost 10 years. During this period of time, we have performed in front of only 5 audiences. Initially we never thought about success when we sung in a small club. But now our dreams came true and I was so proud.
Tom: So we know the two sides of the business work, because we know not only the success but the feeling when we stood in front of 5 people as well. In that small club, no one listened to us, not mentioning an interview. We also know how hard to be the top one. And it is hard to perform facing 500,000 people under the Eiffel Tower, too. Because we have experienced success and failure, we are so grateful today. Maybe we are blessed.

Is it because you are Christian?
Bill: It could be one reason.

We are going to change the topic. After you came here, what do you think of Tokyo? Is it the same as what you imagined or not?
Bill: I can't imagine there are so many fans here waiting for us.
Tokio Hotel: Yeah, yeah!
Bill: I thought no one would be there and no one knew us. But after we got off the plane, many fans were waiting and sent us lots of presents. I was so happy. Everyone welcomed us friendly and zealously.

You have been used to this scene, right?
Tom: Other countries are the same, but it was the first time in Japan. So I thought maybe no one knew us at all and we had to introduce ourselves as first. I was very glad to see so many fans in Japan.

Fan in Europe must be much more than Japanese fans, but everyone here is passionate to you guys. Oh, by the way, Bill and Tom, you said you are both perfectionist. Then you cause troubles to others sometime, right? (Laugh) when did you start to pursue for perfection?
Bill: I guess it started long time ago.
Tom: Something in my body began to control me long time ago, I think.
Bill: I say to myself: "relax, relax the shoulders." But I can not. No matter what I do, I want it to be perfect. I want to make everything perfect. If there was something imperfect, it would hang around me. It's like a disease. I know sometime I cause some troubles to someone else, but I just think of it. I guess others can not be happy. (Laugh)

See? Gustav and Georg are sneering. (Laugh)
Bill: Yes, Tom and I are exactly the same on this point. So when we are together, it's too troublesome for others. I don't even know when it began. Anyway I have been like this long before.

Do you inherit this from your parents?
Bill: Maybe. We are close to our mother and never get any pressure from her. We have grown up freely since childhood. Mum relies on us very much. She does everything according to our likes and dislikes, so we talk closely and she has supported us all the time. Mum has never forced us to do anything including study. She trusts us and says to us: "you do things according to your own ideas. I believe you." Our relationship is very good, so it's hard to say if it is genetic.

I hear of that you don't hire any stylist because of perfectionism. Is that true?
Tom and Bill: Yes.
Bill: I cannot believe him. The stylist may ask us to wear some clothes we don't like. I always feel uneasy. I prefer to choose and buy clothes by myself.
Tom: I don't believe others, either. I want to control everything including PV, CD, total effect, stages, shows and of course music. It can be regarded as freak. But about all of this, we have own thoughts and we believe that we can do much better that anyone else.
Tokio Hotel: (laugh)
Tom: I think we will cause troubles to others. In a word, we hope to handle this by ourselves. I want to be engaged in CD with the text of lyrics or the "Darkside of the Sun" Japanese edition.

And what do you do indeed? Do you guys go shopping?
Bill: It's hard. Especially in Europe it's not okay. But there are several stores that we are familiar with. And in some particular time they are open for us specially. At that time, we can go there and take our time. Besides this, we always buy things online.
(Tom told us that Bill often went to a store called Melrose Avenue in LA.)

Shopping online? Did you buy all of these accessories you wear today online?
Bill: Sure! There are some websites where you can buy such kind of things. Sometimes in certain countries we can go out for shopping with caps and sun glasses without worrying. And sometimes designers give me some clothes.

It sounds good. In our previous interviews, you said your apartment was not like a retail shop but a clothing shop.
Georg: They have more various clothes than stores. It's more like a warehouse.
Tom: I have lots of clothes, but Bill has more than mine. The amount of our clothes is big.
Bill: I'm used to put all my clothes away instead of throwing them. Talking about clothes, I am...
Georg: Sluttery.
Bill: Yes, I'm like this for clothes. I like every one very much, even though the old clothes are still one part of my history and they have different kinds of memories. This coat is about this and that jacket is about that, something like this.
Tom: The clothes we wore when we were in the first PV shooting are still in the cabinet.

Isn't good to donate them to charity organization?
Tom: We have done this before. But just like what we said, every one has its meaning and memory. We don't want to give them up.

I heard of that you dragged 10 or 12 suitcases on tours. Is it true? (7 suitcases for Japan)
Bill: Yeah, it seems like we carried more. (Laugh) Tours are so long time ago that I can not remember clearly.
Tom: The people who are responsible for carrying the luggage are very tired, I think. It's really good to let others help. (Laugh)
Bill: We took everything we need, because we went on a 3-month tour.

Your band was founded 10 years ago. It has been 10 years. Comparing to the very beginning, did you change your attitude to music?
Bill: I think we grew up actually. All of us grew up and became adults gradually. Surely everyone changed. We got to adapt ourselves on long time tours, so as a musician we grew up as well, which has been natural. We don’t have any thought that we begin to do like this from now on! Just let it be.

How about the subject you composed? Do you change the subject as you grow up?
Bill: The subjects are changed. I get inspiration from many materials such as fashion, people around, movies and so on. Especially my favorite movies, so the last album was inspired by a science fiction movie.

Specifically speaking, which movie is it?
Tom & Bill: It's hard to say.
Tom: Because there are so many movies.
Bill: We like too many good movies.

Please pick some among these movies.
Bill: For example, "2012" is good. And another one, what is the name? Sorry, I forget.
Tokio Hotel: "District 9".
Bill: Yeah, that one is very good. And the new one named "Tron: Legacy" is very commercial. I really want to watch. And there are some other movies that we just know the German name, but English name. I like "The Notebook" and "Labyrinth" acted by David Bowie. They are old movies, but I like them very much. "Inception" is really wonderful.

That one is hard to understand, right? By the way, the show held several weeks ago in South America was full of future sense, especially the clothes. When you set the stage, was the idea based on your own thoughts?
Tom: Yeah! For the 3-month tour in Europe, we prepared for half a year. All the members thought over together in the rehearsal room, like the stage, the clothes and the whole stage. It took us lots of time and energy for the preparation. We preformed a part of the whole. After all it's impossible to finish all. On the European tour, we used 15 trucks to carry all the stuff, but only plane was available in South America. And the plane had its weight limit. So we couldn't take all the stuff. Although it couldn't be the exactly same, we tried our best.

I see. The last question is sort of a joke. Tom and Bill, do you sleep in one bed?
Tom: Nope.

In the previous interview, you said you two did everything together and sometimes you sleep together.
Bill: We were seeing a movie together, but tired at the same time, so...
Tom: It's true. We are together everyday, almost 365 days and 24 hours. We may separate from each other only when we sleep in own beds. (Laugh) Except sleep, we are together.

Oh, I know. (Laugh) well, what is your goal for 2011?
Bill: Go back to our studio and create new songs.

Are you going back to Hamburg or LA?
Bill: We should go back to both of them. Sometimes we want to stay in US, and sometimes we want to stay in Germany. There are many specific plans that are proceeding secretly. But we can not tell you. Tom and I also want to try something else but music. We have not decided, but we will tell you if we decide. The next year should be mainly based on composition.

Did Bill do something relating to fashion? I heard of that you voiced a character in a movie.
Bill: Yeah, I voiced the character of Arthur on "Arthur et les Minimoys" German version.

How about others? What do you do except music?
Bill: They don't have this talent. (Laugh)

Oh! Bill! Come on!
Gustav: I might be the next Stallone in 10 years. And I might voice a character on "Arthur rimbaud 20". (Laugh)
Tom: Although I have never done this before, it's a hard job. (Laugh) Not easy, right?
Bill: It took a long time. That is the achievement I got after I had stayed in studio for several hours.
Tom: Bill is also painstaking as a singer. We are not good at voiceing and making music at the same time, because I think we are not suitable.

How about Georg?
Georg: I haven't got any good proposal. I don't know what is it going to be?

OK! Thank you very much!

Hi again guys <3

Interview with Tokio Hotel - Part 5
Ellegirl.jp article

Back to the topic of music, since your first album, you guys have been collaborating with producers like Dave Roth, Patrick Benzner and David Jost. What kind of effect has been brought by working with them?
Bill: We've been working together for a long time.
Tom: Yeah, we have been working together for 7, or 8 years since we started our band.
Bill: We know each other well, and all the albums are recorded with the producers. Our latest album "Humanoid" was slightly different that, we worked with different people, though we had put a lot of new ideas into the album, we still worked with those guys.
Tom: I think the most important thing is that, we know each other well, everyone in the studio knows the direction of production and sound.
Bill: It is important for us to have the same taste. If we have producers of taste for music different from us, it will be difficult for us to produce an unique song. But we have been working for long time, we know what to do, so it is quite easy.

Which song, from the album "Humanoid", contains the newest element? I think that "Dog Unleashed" is an unique song which mixed electronic with rock.
Bill: Yeah, that's the song which we performed our new sound best. Effect of electronics, programmed drum, keyboard and synthesizer, we had challenge to different sound.

Yes.
Bill: But when we put these stuff into our music, we had something bare in mind. The songs were ours, though we wrote our songs from our hearts, we might be affected by outside world when recording. There were people having different ideas, but their ideas might not be the best. If we used the wrong way, the sound would seem cheap. So, in order not to make those sound become cheap, we had to mix it with awesome rock. In the latest album, electronic rock is the part that I like most. I think that we are of the stage that wanna have challange for new stuff.
Tom: It's a tool for us to make music of larger scales. By introducing electronic rock, we were aiming at making album of sound of more sense of scale.
Bill: Actually, the musical instruments had played more music than we played, that's it.

Bill and Tom looked serious when talking about their music. There are still chat with the 4 guys.

Interview with Tokio Hotel - Part 4
Ellegirl.jp article

Though I'm quite interested in the story of the puzzle. Then what kind of movie influences Bill's World View?
Bill: It's hard to say. I like various kinds of movie. The first movie I watched was David Bowie's Labyrinth (1986). It's my favorite movie.

When did you watch this movie?
Bill: Ehm… At about 6 years old. I watched it again and again because I really like it. I also like Dangerous Liaisons (1988), though it's a very old movie. I watch different kinds of movies, such as science fiction movies. When I was young, I liked E.T (1982) very much, and also vampire movies. I like The Fifth Element (1997). And I like watching romantic movies as well, such as The Notebook (2004). It's really quite moving. Yes, I watch many kinds of movies, rather than one particular type.
Tom: It's really crazy. We have thousands of DVDs, since there are too many good movies.

And the other three? Do you have a favorite band or movie, or is there something influencing you? Could you talk about this?
Gustav: My favorite album is "Darkside Of The Sun". And my favorite DVD is Tokio Hotel. (All laughed)
Georg: Talking about the actors, I like Leonardo Dicaprio the most. (Gustav and Tom laughed loudly)
Georg: (sayed seriously) His movies are really good.
Bill: (agreed) Ehm, it's a fact. His movies are quite good. The movies made when he was young are good too.
Georg: He could be a century actor.
Bill: Right!

And music? What's your favorite album?
Georg: I listen to many kinds of music. And I listen to more than one album each day. The lastest album I bought is Mike Posners'. (Mike Posners was also a candidate for 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards)
Bill: He is an American new-comer. And there is a pop and R&B feeling in his music.
Tom: R&B, Dance and Hip-Hop, those three feeling mix together.

And what about Tom?
Tom: My favorite movie is Training Day (2001) which was acted by Denzel Washington. He is cool and…
Bill: (interrupted) Tom likes all the movies acted by Denzel Washington. And Man On Fire (2004).
Tom: Ah! Man On Fire is really good. Dakota Fanning is also a good actress. (Who acted in Man On Fire too, her full name is Hannah Dekota Fanning, well-known movie is I Am Sam (2001).)

The interview suddenly warmed up.

Interview with Tokio Hotel - Part 3
Ellegirl.jp article

Bill, you create lyrics like writing diaries?
Bill: Ja. They are completely different. We get inspiration from various aspects, and the contents are basically about our feelings and experiences.

The songs are not only about reality and fantasy, also the connection between them.
Tom: I think both worlds will arouse my true feeling. The fantasy world affects us, especially reflected on our new album "Humanoid".

Which emotion can be easily impressed in Tokio Hotel's music?
Bill: We always create lyrics with our emotions in the moment. We would probably feel aggressive or sad, grieved, brokenhearted, happy, or sometimes we just want to have a party that night. We have different feelings every each day. We always catch some points and put them into our lyrics, just like keeping a diary. There must be some people write diaries at night! And our music is the product of the mixture of diaries and fantasies.

In TH official website, we can know a lot about your own views of world from the concepts of designing webs. When did you have this idea?
Bill: HAHAHA (laughing happily). It's like doing a puzzle. We had not even one idea at first. We just kept on creating our songs, like putting the electronic music into them and made it more colorful. When we did this, we gradually had some ideas such as how visual effects can be appeared, or how to convey human's emotions. We achieve this effect through the pictures or backgrounds, and they're just like the costumes on tour. All of them make the songs lively.

So deep! Cool! Bill, when did you think you are like a star?
Bill: Very early. Mama always said Tom and I were very noisy kids.
Georg: And you are still a noisy kid. (laughing together)
Bill: (keep on saying with a little anger) We're naturally artists. Mama often brought us to parties and we kept the microphones with us, then speaking or dancing. We were energetic anytime.
Tom: (in German) But sometimes there is bad tongue.

All people laughed when Tom said "Bad tongue", Georg was the loudest.

Hello <3

Interview with Tokio Hotel - Part 2
Ellegirl.jp article

All of you started the band when [you] were really young, but from that time, what kind of music did [you] want to make or was there a special image?
Bill: Mm, no, there wasn't. We just immediately started to write music by ourselves, we made our own music. So until now, we have not copied anyone's songs.

That's so amazing!
Bill: (laughs) But, each of our musical interest is different. And so far, because there has not been a band like ours, [we] could only make original [music] right away. Because all the members didn't have any favorite artists in common.

Now?
Bill: Now, everyone likes the rockstar Aerosmith. But of course, the music everyone listens to privately is different. [We] are always asked, about our vision, what do [we] want to do from now on, how are [we] making music but, it's really simple. We just wait for "something" to come to all of us.

So, it's easy to find the music you guys want to make?
Bill: Oh yes, that's it! Because the start of the band was really early, I always think of the lyrics, and tom plays the guitar...
Tom: Writing the music is easy. It's always easy to find what we want to do, so [we] just do it.

How do you find it?
Tom: [We] just start performing in the rehearsal room. Bill starts to write emotional lyrics, and we play [our] instruments. The lyrics and music is all produced at the same time.
Georg: [We] don't prepare anything beforehand.
Bill: Speaking about some expressions, when writing, there are also people who write a story or write poetry to express [themselves]. But we always express ourselves in making music.

When writing lyrics, where do you get inspiration from?
Bill: From everywhere. [I] collect ideas from many places, and Tom and I organize it together while [we] are recording in our home studio. Inspiration from movies, inspiration from when passing through cities, myself and different people, and also from life. [We] go to the studio and put those things together, and from there some new ideas are born, some are all changed. It's brought together like that.

I don't want to reveal too much, but one long haired Tokio Hotel band member has his first gray hair since Zimmer 483 - jep, no kidding. Unfortunately, it's pretty likely that he'll be going bald within the next couple of month. Yes you heard me, bad news. One of us is loosing his hair big time. The good news is: below it seems to be growing and growing and growing…

Hello there <3

Bill Kaulitz - The look of the Tokio Hotel superstar
Vogue.it article

Living fully has always been the only possible option for Bill Kaulitz. At 12 he formed the band Devilish with his twin brother Tom and friends Georg Listing and Gustav Schafer. In 2001 the band catches every opportunity to perform and it‘s thanks to their perseverance that in 2003 talent scout Peter Hoffman discovers them. He changes the name of the band in Tokio Hotel and obtains a record deal with Universal. Their latest single Hurricanes and Suns is the bonus track of their album Best Of, released in late 2010, which contains all their greatest hits. The album was released in three versions: Inglese Version, German Version and Deluxe Limited Edition.

Bill Kaulitz, who is adept of a very dark color palette, is inspired by the looks of the great rockstars of the past when it comes to his wardrobe. To perform on stage he never gives up metal studs and heavy eyeliner, for social events he remains true to his rocker DNA, always opting for slim trousers preferably in leather, biker jackets or blazers sharply cut and boots. The military-inspired navy blue cashmere coat by Burberry Prorsum and the Frankie Morello tank top are perfect for him. To achieve a style a little less sui generis the minimal cotton shirt by Calvin Klein and a pair of washed jeans like the ones by Desigual or the parka in soft fabric by Emporio Armani.

Interview with Tokio Hotel
J-wave.co.jp article

Bill Kaulitz: "I don't celebrate Valentine's day because I don't have a girlfriend."

This week, we met with the phenomenal German rock band Tokio Hotel. Indeed, Nana Otsuka met them yesterday and interviewed the members of Tokio Hotel who visited Japan.

They have sold more than 7 million albums to date! They are the most successful artists in Germany in the past 20 years.
This week, Tokio Hotel makes their debut in Japan!
Yesterday, in a building in Tokyo, I went to visit guitarist Tom, the singer Bill's twin brother. I also met bassist Georg and drummer Gustav!

The singer Bill's outfit was unique. He wore a silver suit, it was splendid! As expected, he was dazzling!
First, I asked the untold story of the group and where the name Tokio Hotel ame from.
Bill: That's a question that has often been asked. The band was formed when we were very young and the band's first name was "Devilish". I wanted a cool name, and while looking for a new name for the group, we had the idea of "Tokio Hotel". It sounded good, Tokyo is a far away city and kept us motivated. We liked it because we felt that it was a goal. Including the word "Hotel", it was the world we dreamed about. And then, "Tokio Hotel" I think, is a pretty name.

"Tokyo is a goal", he dreamed of a place of symbol. [TOKYO -> TOKIO].
And the symbol of their desire to make a living on tour -> HOTEL.
The name of the group is full of dreams.
Later, I told them about their first Japanese album "Darkside of the Sun." I heard it was a concept album.
Bill: Firstly, I really wanted to do a special edition for the Japanese fans. I think you need to understand what it is to listen to an album of Tokio Hotel . We have included two new songs from previous albums. From this point of view, I think it's the best Tokio Hotel album ever released . As for the selection of songs, each group member has selected his favorite. For example, we decided that "Monsoon" should figure in it because it is a very special song for us. It is our first single.

In a few days, it's February 14, Valentine's Day. In Japan, a young girl offers chocolates to the guy she loves! Here is their reaction when I told them!
Bill: Really?! We must introduce that habit in Germany! I envy the Japanese boys. There is also Valentine's Day in Germany. But guys offer gifts to girls instead. You can also give gifts to people important to you, like your family. I do nothing, because I have no girlfriend, but Georg does, why don't you offer her something like a car or a diamond?

I wish I were a Japanese boy. In Germany and in Japan, some customs are different! I did not know Georg had a girlfriend! I offered them chocolate, woe is me.
The members of Tokio Hotel have decided to leave one last message to the listeners.
Bill: Thanks for your continued support, guys. I am very happy to be in Tokyo. Hope to see you soon!

Hey there <3

Interview with Tokio Hotel - Part 1
Ellegirl.jp article

Tokio Hotel was found by identical twin brother, Bill (Vo.) and Tom (G.), who come from an old small city called Loitsche in Eastern Germany. (Birthday: 1989.9.1) Then Georg Listing (B. - 1987.3.31) and Gustav Schafer (D. - 1988.9.8) joined them. Finally four of them set up this band.

Bill and Tom began to compose music at their age of 7. They did their performance in Magdeburg when they were 10 years old. So they were early-maturing.

Later on, at their age of 13, they had similar tastes and interests with Georg and Gustav who came to watch their live show, and began to set up the band.

Georg began to play the base at age of 13 and Gustav began to play the drum at age of 15. To them, the band was the real career.

Regarding to the reason why TH named their band Tokyo, Bill said: "They consider Tokyo as their final destination, because Tokyo is too far to reach. The scene that we are in Tokyo always hangs around us. We are inspired by this scene and add Tokyo into the band's name." (This question is on my twitter from Rily.)

The interview started in harmonious atmosphere like last time. (Questions about music are included.)

What a fabulous hairstyle!
Bill: Thank you!

How long did you spend on this hairstyle?
Bill: This one is easiest, because the hair dresser just needs to make the hair like this. It did not take a long time to do this. But in the past it was really time-taking and troublesome due to my long hair. And every time we used one hair spray up. So the hair style today is an easy one.

It is the second time to come to Tokyo. What do you think of Tokyo?
Bill: We really like the streets in Japan. We were a little nervous on the first day when we just arrived. We could not imagine at all before we reached Tokyo. But we knew what it was like this time. We met different kinds of people and everything was exciting. We really appreciated that everything was full of energy. And all the people were very kind. Besides this, our fans were energetic. They sent us lots of presents and had done many things for us. We were moved a lot. So it was most exciting moment when we took pictures with fans. At the moment, each one released their emotion.

Where do you want to go in Tokyo?
Gustav: We haven't seen much. But we went to Shibuya, it was awesome! The crossing in Shibuya was amazing. We met many people that we’ve never met before. In Germany, there is no place like this. We really want to see more streets like this.

What kind of impression do you have on Japanese girls?
Bill: They are very lovely. Although sometimes they are a little bit shy, I think they are sweet and cute. It is normal to be shy and flustered when your favorite band is standing in front of you, after all they are your favorite. So this is natural. I really like.

How about German girls and American girls?
Bill: They are not shy at all. What should I say? In Germany, people are more crazy. (He raised his voice.) Because different countries have different culture, I can not judge. It differs from man to man. After we just arrived in Japan, I realized that Japanese are a bit shy. But all the TH's fans are basically in a big family. They share everything on Twitter. So I think Japanese fans are going to join in the big family.

Bill, so you are a shy boy, right?
Tom, Georg, Gustav: Bill is shy! (laugh)
Bill: No, I'm not like that. (flush) In my option, I believe there must be some moments in people's life when people feel shy. I guess I may not be shy because I was used to communicating with people after years of practicing. But it all depends. According to different situation, people may feel shy as well. I was wondering that I may say hello to a beautiful lady, telling her that I am a supper rock star confidently in private time.
Tom: I have a good advice. If Bill meets someone and feel shy, he should offer a kiss. (All the people laugh) Therefore Bill is shy! (laugh)
Bill: Ok, I am a little bit shy.
Tom: So you should do that.
Bill: I can not do that. I know it's better to kiss with true feelings.
Tom: See? Bill is a shy boy. (laugh)

The interview keeps on in the harmonious atmosphere.

Hi again guys <3

Interview with Bill & Tom
Gekirock.com article

Congratulations on your first day here. You seem to be very busy with interviews today, are you enjoying yourself in Japan?
Bill: Of course! I'm having lots of fun! But it's true that we have a whole day of interviews, I'd thought it'll be nice if we could go out more, but just the fact that we are here in Japan makes us really happy! Anyway I think we are going out tomorrow.

Is the image of Japan you had in your mind previously destroyed after seeing Japan 1st hand?
Bill: Hahaha! (laughs) It's okay! We heard that in Japan, the streets are really big and colorful, it's a crazy country, but we didn't know how it really fits the image. But seeing Japan now, there's a lot of buildings, it's a really beautiful country! I would love to see more of Japan tomorrow!

I see. Apparently the band's name and the lyrics consist of some Japanese.
Bill: When we were down in the studio in Germany we'd thought "Why not set a goal, a goal that is so far and so impossible to achieve", so we thought of including Tokyo = Tokio into the band's name. And today we're here in Japan, I would love to see how is the culture and music is like with my own eyes.
Tom: Considering the history of the band, Tokyo is an important place to us. That's why we are truly grateful that we are indeed here.

I see. Although Germany and Japan are really far away the fans are able to get to know you through Myspace and Facebook.
Tom: That's true even though we are the type who only uses e-mails (laughs), when we saw the official Myspace and Facebook we are aware of the large community of fans there. Of course the number of Japanese followers are increasing as well. It'll be nice if we're able to gain more Japanese fans during this period of time.

Congratulations to the release of "Darkside Of The Sun" a Japan limited album. The 16 songs from previous albums like "Humanoid", "Scream" and "Humanoid City Live", well that's a lot of songs. Were the songs selected by the members?
Tom: Yes! We chose them!
Bill: This is a special album limited to Japan. We have released our albums in many different countries the release of the album came the latest for Japan, so we thought that we would release our best work here. All the single releases up to date are included, so you would be able to listen to our history so far. So I suppose this is another best of album.

The 2 albums which make up this best of album, "Scream" and "Humanoid" what are the themes of these albums?
Bill: Firstly, "Scream" is our debut album, something we recorded properly in the studios. Just like the title it represents the emotions we have, how desperate we want to scream "We are right here!!!" out loud, it's a very energetic album. "Humanoid" on the other hand is something very different, we are more experienced in the studio...
Tom: We are credited as co-producers too!
Bill: Exactly! (laughs) We were more used to studio works, "Humanoid" is a creative work. As we get the opportunity to meet different people around the world we get more different inspirations, so it turned out to be more futuristic just like a sci-fi movie.

I see. Tokio Hotel's melody is very catchy and the sound is very dynamic, it seems that it's evolving and getting more and more dramatic.
Bill: The 4 members have very different taste in music, we don't have 1 specific group that we like, so we are inspired by many bands which I guess created the Tokio Hotel sound. Ever since we were young, the band had done countless numbers of live performances thats why we are able to be resonant with one another.

Artists who were mentioned had inspired you are Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses.
Bill: Aerosmith is a rock legend that I really like. There aren't many bands that are that big these day are there?
Tom: Yeah. Female solo artists, hip hop groups, rappers etc who simultaneously releases albums, however this doesn't seem to be happening to Rock bands. Having a single hit and then disappearing from the industry, there are many bands like that. That's why we respect bands like Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses.

I see. Putting aside Tokio Hotel's sound, visual image and creativity, do you have rock bands which you can relate to?
Bill: I think the Black Eyed Peas is great, the album's concept, live performances and video clips are really good. The producer and song writer, Will.I.Am is very cool! And 30 Seconds to Mars too! Their newest video "Hurricane" was great! They are a very creative band who pay attention to small details too!
Tom: But the number 1 band is still Tokio Hotel! (laughs)

Yes, (laughs) 30 Seconds to Mars which was just mentioned seems to have resonance with Tokio Hotel in terms of background and stance.
Bill: Yes! 30 Seconds to Mars is brilliant when it comes to quality! Jared as a singer is great! Both groups are perfectionists. We met them a couple of times during award ceremonies. (laughs)
Tom: Jared is a really nice guy.

Tokio Hotel who have received many music awards and is enjoying their success now, please do tell us your current goals.
Bill: Our aim would be WORLD TOUR! The actual feeling of dominating the world's market, so I was thinking about a world tour.
Tom: We have received approximately 90 awards, that's all because of our fans doing their best to vote for us, however we have not yet gotten a Grammy award. (laughs)
Bill: Yeah. It seems that fans have been posting comments in the Internet during the period of the Grammy awards.
Tom: But we have not released our album yet during that time.
Bill: Yes, it's a regret that we missed the Grammy awards! We'll be aiming for the Grammy award next time! (laughs)

Lyrics part

I've made a brand new layout for the Lyrics part! You can see it here:

Graphics part

Tokio Hotel Update: New Tokio TV Episode, Bill Recording With Secret Artist
MTV Buzzworthy Blog

It has been too long since our last Tokio Hotel update, folks. So we're going to rectify that situation right now!

First up, what happens when one of the most passionately loved and obsessed over bands spends some time in the land of the world's most passionately obsessive fans? Well, the new episode of Tokio TV answers that question, catching up with the band as they meet some of their more, um, excited Japanese fans -- in Tokyo, no less.

The band members interact with some screaming fans, do some shopping, argue over correct autograph procedures and generally seem to have a great time.

In other Tokio news, we came across this tweet, from New Year's Eve, where it was cryptically announced that Bill Kaulitz had recorded a track with another artist. But said musician's name is a secret. Hmmm.

Message boards and forums are buzzing with guesses as to who it could be, ranging from Korn's Jonathan Davis to, gasp, Lady Gaga. Got any guesses? Leave 'em in the comments section!

Kanon & Tokio Hotel
SHOXX Magazine (Japan) Vol. 217

imagebam.com imagebam.com

Kanon was selected by the SHOXX magazine for a special interview to the European rock band Tokio Hotel. Below is the transcript of our conversation. Oh, there are many exchanges of views on the artists of East and West, and in An Cafe. I hope you enjoy reading, please take a look!

Ah, Japanese fans have already heard the strong voice of the German fans.

Kanon: Tokio Hotel are interested in listening to Japanese bands?
Bill: Yes, we are very interested. Do not know much, but we heard that there are plenty of bands that are fantastic and enthusiastic, as heard on this CD (CD Kanon).
Kanon: Thank you.

Kanon: I've been several times in Europe...
Bill: Have you been to Germany?
Kanon: I've been there, yes.
Bill: Which city?
Kanon: In Cologne and Berlin.
Bill: All right!

Kanon: The flights between Germany and Japan are very long, right?
Bill: Tom and I have moved to Los Angeles now. Compared with Germany, Japan is closer to the United States. About 11 hours of flight, but is still long. Gustav and Georg came from Germany.

Kanon: The Germans are tall in stature...
Bill: Oh, there are many with the height of Gustav (laughs).

Kanon: The Germans also speak with high voice. Programs I saw and the voices of the presenters were very high. Here, however barely hear what the other says.
Bill: As the Germans are high, it is natural to think that they also have a great voice. But I like the screams of fans.
Kanon: Me too!

Kanon: You have not opened any presentation in Japan, right?
Bill: Yes, but we have a presentation open to anyone. Japan is very different from Germany, but coming to Japan has always been our dream. I can not believe I'm in Japan, but in general has always been our dream. I am very happy for tomorrow, which will be our presentation here in Japan.

Kanon: The Japanese fans are a little "too shy"...
Bill: I think so. They are very nice, but a little shy, yes.
Kanon: It's typical.
Bill: I understand, I understand.

Kanon: Akasaka Blitz is a very nice, especially on the inside can see the difference, I love it.
Bill: We've seen the pictures and the place looks very beautiful. Before coming to Japan, we introduced in Mexico in a room with 18.000 people. This room can be a bit small, but at least the atmosphere is more intimate. I think it will be like a fresh air for us.
Kanon: 18.000, wow!

Kanon: At the press conference, the atmosphere was fantastic. You already ate pizza in Japan, right? The pizza in Japan is very different from pizza in Italy, Japan has a unique flavor.
Bill: I did not understand much about the menu of pizzas that were in the hotel, however, despite that make it a different way, is very tasty. For lovers of pasta and pizza is always a pleasure to experience.
Kanon: I noticed that you're a vegetarian.
Tom: Bill and I are vegetarians, so do not eat meat.
Bill: I have heard much of Japanese food, including many delicious vegetarian dishes.

Kanon: Japanese cuisine is very different from the West. It takes a lot of meat and a variety of fish. Kaiseki, for you vegetarians: eat like Buddhist monks. In general, because their clergy do not eat meat, right?
Bill: That's great! We'd love to know where we could eat.

Kanon: I also noticed your makeup...
Bill: I became interested in makeup when he was 12. I also went to school with makeup.

Kanon: What made you interested in makeup?
Bill: I became interested because of Halloween. I dressed as a vampire. I liked the look of a vampire and David Bowie, so I fell in love with makeup since the beginning. I was inspired by a particular person, is a mixture of elements that I like. I created my current appearance.

Kanon: Oh, so the other band members will not follow it?
Tom: No.
Gustav: No way.
Georg: I do not think so (laughs).
Bill: Although our band is very close, we all have a great personality, each has its own style, and should not change that, and not everyone would like to see to make the whole band. I do this because as a child, I liked to wear makeup and choose how to combine the makeup the clothes she wore. We have no stylist, always have the last word on our new look.
Kanon: Ah, I see.

Kanon: Do you put makeup on your own?
Bill: When I was in school I did, now I have a professional makeup artist to help me, I could do it alone, but I'm a little lazy.
Kanon: Ok.

Bill: We also have a question: Where does the name of his band "An Cafe"?
Kanon: Is the name of a racehorse.
Bill: The horse must be very strong. Horse racing is very popular in Japan.
Kanon: Yes, members of my band and I love horses, so we chose the name of a racehorse.
Bill: The name is really cute.

Kanon: In Japan there is a special place you want to go?
Bill: Well, is there somewhere I can go?
Kanon: Akihabara and Harajuku.
Bill: We went to Harajuku.
Tom: How many people!
Bill: You look around and see people everywhere.
Kanon: No coffee.

Tom: What's in Akihabara?
Kanon: This is the Akihabara electronics district, the latest technology releases. Before it was known as the "street power" sell everything.
Bill: That sounds very interesting.
Kanon: The power of the world in a better way.
Bill: Really? Then I have to take a look!
Kanon: I would be very interesting.

Tom: Aside from "An Cafe" - is there another Japanese band?
Kanon: Oh, the Japanese?
Tom: If I were asked, "Tell me what is the best German band" could not answer: "Tokio Hotel"! (Laughter)
Kanon: Exactly! No other band that I recommend.
Bill: Well, then we must listen.

Kanon: After listening to our songs, tell us what you think.
All: Yes!

Kanon: Although there is no need to say it now, do not forget to come back to Japan!
Bill: We'll be back for sure.
Tom: Even if we have to go soon...
Bill: ...listen to the CD.
Kanon: Thank you.
