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?

I am open to all encounters

Singer Bill Kaulitz, on the upcoming Tokio Hotel, tour, his intimate relationship with twin brother Tom, crazy fans and the question of why he does not let anything dictate either in love or on the subject of clothes.

Bill Kaulitz, has it easy. This glam factor. Even if he poses on the steps of a bare staircase for a photo. The singer and frontman of the band Tokio Hotel, wears back his blond-dyed hair. His black patent leather pants crunch a bit while running. The top buttons of his shirt are open, so you can see his colorful tattoo, a picture of the “Eye of Providence”, the mystical triangle symbol, surrounded by a halo of light. A brother tattoo. His twin brother Tom, has the same on his arm. With “Hi, I’m Billhe introduces himself during the interview in a lounge room of the Hessian radio station Hitradio FFH in Bad Vilbel. When the 29-year-old speaks, he emphasizes his statements with his hands and arms. At the same time a cameraman is filming for the Youtube channel “Tokio Hotel TV“.

In 2005, the band’s four boys from nearby Magdeburg turned teen stars over school holidays with their song “Durch den Monsun”. Five years later, Bill, and his twin brother Tom Kaulitz, fled to Los Angeles. Fans had broken into their house in Germany. A musical comeback will take until 2014, with their two band-mates Gustav Schäfer, (drums) and Georg Listing, (bass) Bill, and Tom, record two English-language albums. They want to get away from the teen sound that made the band famous.

A few days ago her single “When It Rains It Pours” was released. A mix of pop and blues. From the end of April, the band is on an international tour, from London to Moscow. In addition to old hits, a few unpublished songs are played. “I think it’s exciting to see the reaction of the fans,” says Bill Kaulitz. Tokio‘s new album “Melancholic Paradise” is due to be released later this year.

Mr Kaulitz, many think that you just stand on stage and just sing. But you also write the songs together with your twin brother Tom and are responsible for the costumes. Your brother seems to have more stress on the preparations. Why?

That’s true. Tom did not come to Frankfurt today because the preparations for the tour are insanely intense for him. Georg, Gustav and he now master almost all instruments. Tom sometimes plays ten different instruments during a song. He is also our musical director: he does all the production in our studio in L. A. We did not involve anyone else. On our new album we also have songs with synths – and so Tom just has to see how to put it all into action live. Then comes light and video production. We want to give people a show they have not seen before. With this tour, the stage will look different for each song.

Do you actually sing your first hit “Through the Monsoon”? Or can not you stand that anymore?
