Interview with Bill Kaulitz
My twin brother marries and I’m happy for him

Köln – Almost overnight, Bill Kaulitz, (29), his twin brother Tom, Georg Listing, and Gustav Schäfer, as Tokio Hotel, have become pop stars and teen idols with “Durch den Monsun”. Not a few thought that this would be a short-lived phenomenon, but the band also got off to a great international start and is today one of the most successful German bands of the past 15 years with more than ten million records sold. On April 30, Tokio Hotel, will play in the E-Werk. Dominic Röltgen spoke with the singer known for his unusual outfits about this time, the aging and the upcoming wedding of his brother with Heidi Klum.

I say that if we had met 15 years ago in Cologne for an interview, it would not have happened so calmly, and I would have had a harder time getting through to you.

That always depends. We try to do something more incognito-like. I never actually announce where I’m going. When I do that, people are still there. I always try to fly a bit under the radar. That works sometimes, but sometimes not so well (laughs).

When you think back to this turbulent beginning, do you have a crazy memory about Cologne?

We used to be here quite often. Here were always the whole TV shows, Stefan Raab, for example, was produced here. It was mostly crazy at the airport. The craziest memory has nothing to do with fans, but with a pilot. Because we came because of the fans, because it was so full and we did not get through, too late to the plane. And then he flipped out right, made an announcement and said: “This fucking boy band! Because of them we can not leave here in time! “(Laughs)

If I may be honest. If somebody had told me in 2005 that I was interviewing you today, I would have definitely doubted that Tokio Hotel would be around. What do you think, how did you manage to still be there despite the immense expectations?
