For the new year: Tokio Hotel Bill Kaulitz wants love
The life of a star is not always easy. In an Interview Tokio Hotel frontman Bill Kaulitz disclosed recently, that he sometimes feels like he’s caged. He can’t even go shopping without security, never the less in a club.
Nonetheless the band absolutely swims on a wave of success, also receiving in 2010 numerous Awards and provided respectable sales figures of their albums.
But in his private life, nothing’s going well, as the 20 yr old complains. He wants a love so much. But because he even hasn’t time to realize his fame and success, he also hasn’t time and opportunity to find a love.
Hamburgs currently most succesfull producer likes to stay in the background, doesn’t speak into cameras and rarely has time for interviews: David Jost (37), Producer, Songwriter and Manager of “Tokio Hotel”, is a Workaholic. Since 7 years he’s the man behind the Band “Tokio Hotel”, which is, since a long time, also an international and a very successful Band. Together with Bill Kaulitz he wrote all the big “Tokio Hotel” Hits. At the moment he is, with Robin Grubert composed song, “I Like”, sung by US-Star Keri Hilson, is #1 on the Charts. With MOPO Jost talked about his Job and his life between Hollywood and Hamburg.
What did you think when you met the Boys from “Tokio Hotel” for the first time, seven years ago?
Jost: At the time, I didn’t even want to put all my devotion into one Band. But after I saw and heard them with my Partners, I was paralyzed. This emotional potential of Bill, he was 13 back then, was incredible. Even as a young boy he had an exceptional appearance, carried a great sadness, but also a great fighting spirit in him. We then worked on his Song-ideas together at the Studio. A lot of people said to us that it wouldn’t work, and that the Band-Name “Tokio Hotel” is too strange. I told all of them that I believed in the Band, and that they would enter on #1 on the Charts – if this wouldn’t have happened, I would have looked pretty stupid.
What’s so special about “Tokio Hotel”?
Jost: The star-potential of this Band is incredibly large, and you can find a Frontman like Bill only every few decades. In addition the Boys are clever, and involved in all the decisions when it comes to the Band. In the last year they automatically got a complete Music Business education, paralell to their career on stage. Especially Tom has really worked himself into that a lot. If he someday gets sick of standing on stage, then he can get successful by working behind the scenes.
