Tokio Hotel - Exclusif Interview [Paris 17-04-2007].part2.rar
The question is cut but I guess they ask about what they think about French fans.
Tom : We always feel great, we have a great welcome in the hotel, or in airport, this morning we went to NRJ (Radio Station) it was the same, the welcome was really great.
Bill : It's always unexpected for me to go in France or think about France, it's a bit like vacation, free time, etc... When we pass near the Eiffel Tower, we think about relax, have fun and it's really very stange for us when this morning at NRJ, there were ~600 fans who waited us, it's really a strange feeling in an other country, in an other language, all these people who wait us.
You sing in German, everywhere you go, it's always the same euphoria, the same craze, can you explain to us?
Bill : For us, it's completly unexpected because we sing in German and we didn't know how people will react abroad. Espacially for us, for our music, for the message who want give in our texts, it's important to understand what we said in our texts. And at the biginning, we couldn't imagine to become famous, we didn't know how people will react, we were very opened to this and we saw that people have interest to us, to our music and translate our lyrics and love what we do. For us, it's great and it's really interesting because we didn't have a concept or a strategy that we follow to become famous, we are always very surprised when people invest in this way.
Tom : It's very special for us because we are very bad in foreign languages.
Bill : We talk about very different things, we talk about hope, dreams about the youngs like us because everybody see the life in a different views, have different aims, different fears, hopes and we talk about what the have in the heart, of what is important for young people. In our new album, we talk about suicide because we think it's a suject about we can think even when we are young and we talk about things which interest us, our own experiences and it's what it's important because it's about what we lived and we dream ourselves, we can really support our thoughts and ideas.
Which are your favorite bands for each of us?
Bill : It's really different, I can't say only one band I like, I don't have a special musical taste, I love Nena and Green Day, Placebo sometimes, and Coldplay that I find good. Gustav listens things a bit harder...
Gustav : I like the Foo Fighters.
Georg : For me, it's rather the Full out Boys.
Tom : Me, it's German hip hop and the only band apart German hip hop, it's the Foo Fighters.
You're not children of musicians families, how music came to you when you were so young ?
Bill : In a certain way, we grew with music because our stepfather played a lot in a rock n roll band, he was the guitarist, we were very early confront to the music and we fastly saw that it's something we adore.
Georg : My father brought me very young in concerts and everyday, there were lots of different bands and music at home, we grew with music...
Can you precise the bands you listen when you were children?
The translator doesn't translate ._. what are she doing ?
Tom : Aerosmith
Bill : Nena, I discovered music with Nena, etc...
Georg : The Beatles, ACDC, Rolling Stones
Gustav : Metallica
You play in front of thousands people, how do you manage it at 17 years old?
Bill : It's something what we are used as much as to wake up early, we can't get used to that, it's incredible, we can't describe what we feel before go on stage, I would rather say before to be allowed to go on stage, it's really huge, indescribable. We played big concerts since 2 years now, for us, this thought was really far from us, we played in little clubs with our amplifier in front of 5 people, our parents came with us, we didn't thought we could play big concerts. Even now, when I watch the videos of the last Tour, I think it's incredible that all these people come one night to see US, it's impossible.
Tom : It's always seem stupid when a band says it's indescribable, but franckly speacking, you must live it , we can't describe, we are on stage, we play, we think about nothing and we can't believe it.
Do yo understand the spirit of the fans to be crazy of you, do you already have been fan in the first meaning of words of a band, and this passion for you from all these girls?
Tom : When I look at the others, I don't see what the girls find in them (laugh)
Bill : You must be a fan at least one time in your life for the young people, for everybody, you must be fan, it's also a part of the life. And I think each of us can let himself bring by the feeling to be fan, me too I was a fan of lots of bands, I went to their concerts, I followed them, so I understand very well what the fans feel.
Tom : Obviously for us, it's difficult to imagine that it's US that they are fan, for us it's a bit weird to imagine us to be the subject of their desire, but the fact to be a fan, we can understand.
Tokio Hotel, who choose this name and why?
Bill : I don't remember exactly who choose this name, and I dont think there is especially one who found it. There is a moment where we said there is new page of our life which begins, we want change the name, a new name and I don't know anymore who has the idea of Tokio Hotel, but we said it's really a name who looks like us because we like big cities, sleep in hotels, we spend our life in hotels, it's like a symbol of our life for now, and it's the only name where each of said it's a name we like.
What is your future now?
Bill : It's difficult to say, we hope that the future will be good and there will be lots of good things and finally, it's difficult to know how it will continue because things are come in very different ways of what we imagined, there are lots of unexpected things which happened and of course, we hope to continue like this, continue to do music and we stay really optimist for our future.
Since how many times are you together?
Bill, Tom, Georg : 6 or 7 years.
