Part1

For anyone who doesn’t know - where does the name Tokio Hotel come from? Tom: We used to be called “Devilish” when we were younger. It didn’t have a real meaning to us. It was a total change and new beginning for us, when we started to work in the studio and got our record deal. At this point we wanted a name that fits us and means something to us. Because we’re all fans of big cities we came up with Tokio. Although we haven’t been there yet, we think it’s one of the most amazing cities in the world. On the other hand, we wanted a symbol, something that kind of symbolizes our lives. So since we’re living in hotels most of the times – we thought Tokio Hotel would be perfect. What’s your favourite thing about the UK? Georg: London is a great city. It has everything we love about big cities! Tom: Our fans there are absolutely amazing. A lot of them try to speak German with us and they even know all our German lyrics. They’re always there when we come over and we had a great time with them when we played in Islington. We can’t wait to come back again. What do you miss about Germany when you’re away? Gustav: Our friends and families and our German fans. Which country has the craziest fans? Bill: It depends on what you call crazy. For us, all our fans are really energetic. And no matter where we are – they are always there, some even travel to the places we do. Whenever we get out of the airplane, the car, the hotel – they are there. That is really great, even if we attend an event or an award show – they are there. They are our backbone. Für alle die es noch nicht wussten- wo kommt der Name Tokio Hotel her? Tom: Als wir jünger waren hießen wir "Devilish". Der Name hatte aber nie eine richtige bedeutung für uns. Es war ja für uns eine totale Veränderung, als wir anfingen in den Studios zu arbeiten und einen Plattenvertrag bekamen. Da wollten wir dann einen Namen der uns repräsentiert und uns etwas bedeutet. Weil wir alle Fans von großen Städten sind kamen wir auf Tokio. Außerdem waren wir dort noch nie und wir denken sie ist eine der aufregensten Städte in der Welt. Andererseits wollten wir ein Symbol,etwas was unser Leben symbolisiert. Und da wir die meiste Zeit in Hotels leben dachten wir Tokio Hotel wäre perfekt. Was mögt ihr am meisten an Großbritanien? Georg: London ist eine wundervolle Stadt. Sie hat alles was wir an großen Städten lieben. Tom: Unsere Fans sind totaler wahnsinn! Viele von ihnen versuchen mit uns auf Deutsch zu reden und sie können alle unsere Deutschen Texte. Sie sind immer schon da wenn wir ankommen. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit mit ihnen als wir in Islington gespielt haben. Wir können es kaum erwarten nochmal hier zu spielen. Was vermisst ihr am meisten an Deutschland ? Gustav: Unsere Freunde, Familie und unsere Deutschen Fans! Welches Land hat die verrücktesten Fans? Bill: Das kommt drauf an was man unter verrückt versteht. Für uns sind alle Fans sehr energie geladen. Und egal wo wir sind- sie sind immer da. Manche reisen uns sogar hinterher. Egal wann wir aus dem Flugzeug, dem Auto,dem Hotel kommen sind sie schon da. Das ist total toll! Sogar wenn wir auf einem Event oder einer Preisverleihung sind sind sie da. Sie sind unser Rückgrat. What’s been the funniest Tokio Hotel moment so far? Bill (laughs): There are so many, it’s impossible to pick one. We had our own camera team with us on the European Tour and they caught a lot of private moments. Maybe you’ll get to see some of those pretty soon. Tom (laughs): Actually Georg is so clumsy, he delivers funny moments all day long! You should see him – it’s hilarious. Which celebrities have you met? Tom: We met a couple of celebrities – Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Nelly Furtado, the Pussycat Dolls, but it’s not that we know them. People always think that you hang out all the time and have a big party backstage when you meet each other at festivals or shows. But actually everybody does their own thing, gets ready for the show and that’s it. What is your favourite hotel in the world? Bill: We are lucky, we stay often in very nice hotels. But there’s none we could pick. What do you want to achieve by the time you’re 30? Tom: We still want to be Tokio Hotel, making music, travelling around and playing live shows. Bill: We want to do this as long as possible - until we die. Was war der lustigste Tokio Hotel Moment? Bill(lacht): Da gibt es so viele, es ist unmöglich einen zu sagen. Wir hatten unser eigenes Kamera Team während der Europa Tour und sie filmten viele private Momente. Vielleicht seht ihr ein paar davon sehr bald. Tom(lacht): Georg ist so tollpatschig, er liefert den ganzen Tag lustige momente! Ihr müsst den mal sehn- das ist so komisch! Welche Stars habt ihr schon getroffen? Tom: Wir haben schon einige Stars getroffen- Fergie, Gwen Stefani,Nelly Furtado,Die Pussycat Dolls, aber es ist nicht so das wir die alle kennen. Man denkt ja immer, dass du die ganze Zeit rumhängst und die ganze Zeit Backstage Party machst wenn du die anderen triffst. Aber eigentlich macht jeder sein eigenes Ding und macht sich bereit für die Show und das wars. Was ist euer Lieblingshotel auf der Welt? Bill: Wir sind glücklich, immer in schönen Hotels zu sein. Aber wir können unsdas nicht aussuchen. Was wollt ihr erreichen bis ihr 30 Jahre seid? Tom: Wir wollen immer noch Tokio Hotel sein, Musik machen,umherreisen und Live Konzerte spielen. Bill: Wir wollen das so lange wie es nr geht tun- bis wir sterben. What’s Tom’s worst habit? Bill: Tom has the urge to comment everything that is said. There is no conversation or discussion where he has nothing to say. Even in conversations where he isn’t involved. And he loves to have the last word. What’s Bill’s worst habit? Gustav: He tends to be very egoistic – sometimes even too egoistic. What’s Georg’s worst habit? Tom: Georg is always late. That drives me nuts. He just has a time-management-problem. What’s Gustav’s worst habit? Georg: He is very sensitive and gets easily pissed about a bad joke. That gets him into one of his bitchy moods. When he bitches around – that’s really the worst. Who is Tokio Hotel’s… - messiest member? Bill: Georg - funniest member? Tom: I am - laziest member? Bill: All the others Tom: No, everybody except me Gustav + Georg: Ohhhhh! - most hardworking member? Bill: I am! For example, when we recorded the English Album - who had to work? I had to! The music was already recorded but I had to record every vocal on every song again. It’s hard being the singer. Tom: You all can be very happy that you’re playing in my band. I’m the hardest working guy – they would be nowhere without me (laughs) Gustav + Georg: Ohhhhh! Was ist Tom's schlimmste Angewohnheit? Bill: Tom hat den Drang immer alles zu Kommentieren was gerade gesagt wurde. Es gibt keine Unterhaltung oder Diskussion wo er nichts zu sagen hat. Sogar in Unterhaltungen in die er gar nicht verwickelt ist. Und er liebt es das letzte Wort zu haben. Was ist Bill's schlimmste Angewohnheit? Gustav: Er neigt dazu sehr egoistisch zu sein- manchmal sogar etwas zu egoistisch. Was ist Georg's schlimmste Angewohnheit? Tom: Georg kommt immer zu spät. Das bringt mich auf die Palme. Er hat ein Zeit-einteilungs-Problem. Was ist Gustav's schlimmste Angewohnheit? Georg: Er ist sehr sensibel und wird schnell sauer, wegen eines schlechten witzes. Dann wird er immer sehr schnell zickig. Wenn er rumzickt ist das wirklich das schlimmste. Wer ist Tokio Hotel's... - unordentlichstes Mitglied? Bill: Georg! -witzigstes Mitglied? Tom: Ich! -faulstes Mitglied? Bill: Alle anderen! Tom: Nein, alle außer mir Gustav&Georg: Ohhhh!!! -fleißigstes Mitglied? Bill: ICh! Zum Beispiel, als wir das Englisch Album aufgenommen haben- wer musste da hart arbeiten? Ich! Die Musik war ja schon längst aufgenommen, aber ich musste jeden Song nochmal neu einsingen. Es ist hart der Sänger zu sein. Tom: Ihr könnt alle sehr glücklich sein, in meiner Band spielen zu dürfen. Ich bin der fleißigste- sie wären nirgendwo ohne mich (lacht) Gustav&Georg: Ohhhhhh!!

Part2

Bill and Tom, do you know yet if you will have to do your military service? (Laura Castruccio) Tom: So far we did not receive any more letters from the military and we hope it’ll stay like that. The problem is, that there are hardly any women in the military and I would feel pretty lonely at night ;-) Hello! I want ask to Tokio Hotel two questions… (Charlotte Pendézec) What are your projects for 2008? Bill: We don’t plan things that much but there are certainly some dreams and goals we have. We definitely want to do many more live shows next year with our present album and rock the house with all our fans! So I guess just like this year we will hit the road for quite some time and be traveling all over Europe. Are you nervous about the 483tour in France? Georg: Oh yes, we are! Every day the level of excitement increases and the venues we will perform at are gigantic! For our second part of the “483 Europe Tour“ we will be doing shows in Italy, France, Belgium and the Netherlands and thinking of this scares me a bit. But it’ll be great and we are all very much looking forward to it! A lot of fans think that you all have a girlfriend but you hide them because you don't want them to be chased by the press and you don't want to disappoint your female fans. What do you think about it? (Dimishka Roumain) Tom: Well, I don’t want to say that I am always keeping my hands to myself and never meet any girls (he smiles). However, I wouldn’t consider these girls real girlfriends. Bill: If one of us had a girlfriend, we certainly wouldn’t hide them! Currently, none of us is in a firm relationship. b>Dear Tokio Hotel, I'm from the Czech Republic...Why you didn't play "nach dir kommt nichts" on the Zimmer 483 tour? Thanks for your answer... (Katharina Bobková Gustav: It was a tough choice to decide what songs to add to our “483 Europe Tour” set list. In the German magazine “BRAVO” we gave our fans the chance to determine one of the songs that would be included in the set list and they voted for “Der letzte Tag”. Maybe “Nach dir kommt nichts” will be a part of our next huge tour. How long did it take you to make ‘Ready, Set, Go’? (Merete Lambrechts) Tom: That’s hard to answer since we are not working on one song for a certain period of time and then it’s done. It is more of a process! For instance, we come up with the lyrics one night in our tour bus. Then we have to wait till the tour is over to record it for a day or two in the studio. Afterwards we check the song again and find little bits of the song that we want to be changed and that goes on for quite a while – so in total it often takes a lot of time to get to the final version. However, for ‘Ready, Set, Go!’ it didn’t take that long because we already had the instrumentals from the German version and Bill only had to record the new vocals which probably took him five minutes, right Bill? (everybody laughs) I would like to know if you [Bill & Tom] are going to the army when you’re 18? (Emily Al Khlouf) Bill: The military already announced that they would do a physical examination very soon, which is actually happening to all German males around their 18th birthday. After we didn’t respond to the official letter they got a lot more serious and threatened to fine us if we don’t get back to them. Currently, the status is unclear and we don’t know what will happen next.

Part3

You´re playing your first ever gig in Israel soon. That must be quite special for you.

Bill: This concert is definitely very special to us since we will meet our Israeli fans for the first time. On top, we were invited by the Israeli embassy and that is a real honour. Tom: We were totally stunned when we saw all the fan mail from Israel. Nobody counted on having such a huge fan base in the Middle East.

Have you ever been to Israel before?

 Bill: No, this will be our first trip to Israel and we are so excited. Tom: We want to seize this amazing opportunity of going to Israel to experience the country a little better - so far, our knowledge about Israel is quite limited and only based on TV reports. I am sure it´ll be interesting to get to know Israel first hand and we´ll try to see way more than just our hotel and the concert venue!

Why did you choose Israel as one of your concert locations? Tom: Actually, we didn´t really choose Israel...it was the incredibly enthusiastic Israeli fans who made us want to go there! They sent tons of fan mail and petitions over to the Israeli embassy in Berlin. After that, the Israeli embassy contacted us to see if we could add Israel to our tour schedule...and here we are!

You sing your songs in English and German. Which will you do at the Israel gig?

 Bill: I guess we will do a mix - some songs in German and some in English. There are so many Israeli fans out there who write to us in English and even in German - it´s so terrific! Obviously there are also some fans out there that send us fan mail in Hebrew, which is a little difficult for us to understand ;-)

You both celebrate your birthdays recently - what did you do and where did you do it?

Tom: We started Friday, August 31st in the evening and rented a really nice location in Hamburg, Germany. One of the rooms had two casino tables and the other had a really cool bar that was made entirely out of ice. It was pretty chilly in that room so we all had to put on our jackets, which we did right before midnight to celebrate mine and Bill´s birthday. Who was lucky enough to be invited?

Bill: We only invited a very few people - only our best and closest friends were invited as well as our family and our producers.

What kind of gifts did you get?

Tom: We got a lot of very emotional presents from our family and our friends. Bill: That´s true! We got a really nice sculpture - it´s of two bodies and if you put them together in a certain way they look like they´re one body. It´s supposed to symbolise the special connection that exists between me and Tom. Tom: Well, I guess it shows the connection that is there most of the time...because there are a lot of things that we both have totally different point of views and attitudes about!

What kind of food did you have for your birthday dinner?

 Bill: A buffet was set up - mainly Thai food and a lot of fresh fruit which you could dip in a chocolate fountain. That was so delicious...oh my gosh, I love those fountains so much!!!

Do you get the feeling that time is passing faster since you got famous?

Bill: Not at all - I feel as if we´ve been out there for such a long time already...it´s kind of spooky! Tom: Yeah, our success has been almost unbelievable these last couple of years.

How do you feel when you look at old photos from when you were younger, before you were famous?

Bill: When I look at old photos - the ones when we were six years or younger - I don´t even know who is who.

Tom: I usually don´t really care about all this sentimental stuff. However, photos from a long time ago somehow get me and I look at them every once in a while. I love thinking about that part of my past...even though our years in school were not very pleasant! Actually, we hated our school years! There were definitely some advantages back when we were not famous but I would never want to switch back to that life at all.
