BILL: Very tiring! The shooting lasted two nights long. On the first day the whole band was there, on second only me. But fortunately we began only at 5.00 o'clock (PM). That is rather my time (laughs)!
BRAVO: The rather was wet and cold. You were in T-shirt outside. How did you project?
BILL: My whole body trembled. But as soon as the camera was out , i quiclky put a warm coat. In addition, there were tea, hot cocoa and warm waffles. That helped!
BRAVO: You play a suicide - how did you put yourself into this role ?
BILL: That was not really simple. As soon as the camera turned on, I must show the feeling of the song. And only with views. Young people saw the video and said that I made it good.
BRAVO: Were you afraid when you stood on the roof?
BILL: I'm little afraid of high. But fortunately I was secured by ropes and two people. Those talked me a lot. Thus I felt relatively safe.
BRAVO: Did you already have thought about suicide?
BILL: No, never! Naturally everyone has his own problems, and I do not go always as well - however to take my life, I never thought about that!
BRAVO: Are there already cases of suicide in your family or friends ?
BILL: No. But many young people from our surrounding field do not have an easy life at all. Those spoke frequently with us about it. Therefore I found it important to make this song. With my double role as despaired and as rescuers I wanted to show that one may not give oneself up! If one knows someone, which wants to kill itself, he should do everything in order to give hope again to the desperate one!
BRAVO: Did fans already express themselves about it?
BILL: Yes. There were letters, in which fans said that they could have given up before. They meant our music have helped them. It is naturally the most beautiful thing which one can say to us.
BRAVO: Do you have fear of death?
BILL: Yes, like everyone! But Tom has more fear about it. Simply, he loves the life too much. I love the life also. But it is still worse, if people who are close to you, die before you. But we cannot constantly think of that. Otherwise the life would become really not great!
BRAVO: Do you believe in a life after death?
BILL: There is something guaranteed. But which exactly, I can't say. Everything cannot be soo simply in beyond…!
BRAVO: What you would like to be?
BILL: I would like to be a dog (laughs)! It will be good. They can sleep whole day, eat and are continuously cherished.
BRAVO: And would you like become old?
BILL: Very old! It will happend. If I were very ill in the age, I would see that differently. But if I still could jump at 85 years old and enjoy the life - then would be great!
BRAVO: How will be Grandpa Bill?
BILL: Boah, I can't introduce itself at all, how I will look at the age. But I think, I will be a cool Grandpa (smile)!
PS: The video was shooted with two different final scenes. In the one Bill jumps, in the other one he's saved by the other him.
