Translation of the FanParty article by Madeleine:
 
The name was Madeleine and the Official Swedish TH Street Team I do lead.
Through hard work and maybe some luck I got the chanse to go to THs own Party, which was held for their fans as a Thank You for all the support in votings and everything else.

It was named to "The Video Music Awards THANK YOU Fan Party", since fans from all over the world brought TH to victory in the Best Newcomer category in the VMAs.
About 600 fans from all over the world would go to the party, and I was one of them!
Dear FRIDA readers and TH fans - Follow me through my own words, to one of the greatest moments of my life!

From November 28th to December 2th I was "on the road".
In confusion I almost got on the wrong buss the first thing I did.
Was everything packed?
Was I prepared?
My head was totally off.

It all began in the town Hudiksvall, with a stop in Stockholm and then it was off to Hamburg city.
Hamburg is the town in my heart, where I have seen TH live and also lived there for some time.
This only made the whole thing even better.

Me and one of my friends got to Hamburg at Nov.29
We met our third friend there, who's from Italy (Madeleines note: It's Alix leute!!!).
Leave the bags at the Hotel, then we made the best we could with the small amount of time we had.
Visit at Hamburgs X-mas market, where we met up with the Official TH UK Street Team.
Together we enjoyed Hamburg City and shared speculations about tomorrows event.
Tomorrow was THE day! Nothing could go wrong.

30/11
09.00
How do you begin a day where everything have to go right?
Hard to say. We headed it off with breakfast, before we did the city once again, even though it's all closed on Sundays.
X-mas market plus lunch at the lake of Alster.

14.15
Back to the hotel. Complete makeover! Everything had to go right: Clothes, hair, makeup, yeah you get it.
For about two hours we fought for the only mirror in the whole room.
Incredible girly, but what to expect on a day like this?
 We got transformed from Street Chick to Fancy Party Stars, and looked like we were about to have the best night of our lives.
Oh my, we were so right ;)

16.30
Outside Hünerposten
We should have been let in at 17.00
The crowd was big. Most of us was already there; Frozen and excited.
We met up with the UK Street Team once again plus two incredible cute girls from Sweden (Lotta and Jossan).

For far too long time we stood close together to keep the warmth.
About 17.10 the crowd begun to move. Two people at a time was let in.
I would say it took us about one hour and a half to get us through the first line,
and then being led to yet another line.
We were still not inside, but was still outside waiting with hundres of other excited TH fans from all over the world.

18.30
The excitement was in the air now, when they slowly let small groups in.
Me and one of my friends was finally let inside, and my nerves flipped out.
The jacket was now in the wardribe and we met up with the others.
Yet another line, but now we were inside! A dress in the cold of November Hamburg: No hit!
With a pink ribbon on my wrist, a TH stamp on my hand and enormous excitement in my body, you got led to the final line.

19.00
I stood in the doorfram and there they were. I reacted stronger that I had ecpected and prepared myself for.
I convinced myself that I had to make my breathing go back to normal before I reached them.

Fans around me reacted more freaked out than myself and some did not share any expression at all.
While standing in line I looked at them all four. "They..re humans", I caught myself thinking.
Of course I was aware of this already. But it..s something special with looking into peoples eyes. You get to take a part of the persons soul.
What I saw in Bills, Toms, Georgs and Gustavs souls was beautiful! Just as beautiful as I had imagined.

The signing session was, for me, about getting as much time as possible with the guys.
People around me had nice photos of the guys they wanted to have signed, also gifts of every kind.
I throwed a random paper infron of them they got sign, and I saw later on that it was my Fan Party ticket ;)

 By the time I was infront of them, I managed to: Confuse Bill with the gift I had for him and Tom.
I shared an understanding moment with Tom.
With pleasure I enjoyed Georgs sweet smile and enormous kindness.
I scared Gustav in one of the best ways ever.
Besides all of this, I annyoed the guards becasue I took too long in the line.
I have the feeling most of us did ;)
You want to gain time! seconds! You want to make an impression, even if the way to do is to scare a poor drummer to madness ;)

19.10
Right after the signing session you got to the room where the Party was going to be held.
Red lights, disco ball, free bar, dancefloor, music and hundres of TH fans shaking it.
You danced till your shoes burned.
No one knew what was going to happen next.
Was this all?
Wouldnt I be able to see them anymore this evening?
You tried to not think of stuff like that.

20.00
Screaming! Major screaming!
The guys wlaked through the crowd, with very much needed body guards surroinding them.
Bill introduced in German, thanking us all for the support and made it clear: This party was made for us!
The amount of fainting people should have been about 50 people, though I strongly believe most of them were fake, just so they could be carried infront of the band.
What is the deal with that!?

After all the drama, the party started for real.
Inside of these four walls, in this small local, we danced in the same room as TH.
There was crowded infront of the VIP section where the band was seated.
I was happy with my spot. I had room to dance and I saw the boys at the same time.

In the speakers, the song of Lady GaGa "Just Dance" was played.
This song will forever be remebered by all of the TH fans which were in that room at that very moment.
The always so quiet drummer decided that yes; I will make you shake it!
While Gustav was dancing to Lady GaGa, who were we to NOT shake it till we dropped?
Party Mood was in the house!

All of you, who have been fooled that Gustav only is the silent and normal drummer even outside interviews: Well, you're wrong!
Gustav is spontangious and he happily share his more crazy side.
The dancing drummer was a wonderful sight, and he gave us more energy than the Red Bull (which was served) could ever give us.
We danced on and on.

I saw that the band was surrounded by guards.
All becasue they wanted to avoid a fan-attac.
They almost made it, until Georg decided to leave the room.
While trying to get out, a "fan" decided to act all idiot,
wjile gripping Georgs jacket with force and trying to rip it off him.
She got basiclly smacked to the floor by a guard.
Her way of acting is in my oppinion unaccepteble!
They made this party for us! For the fans, as a thank you,
and we cant behave?
I do not like!

The drama incident passed by and the party went on.
The Fans together with TH.
In the same room, where we shared the same air, same music and same experience.

How do you describe someting that's perfect, with only words?
By seconds they became human which was confirmed during the hours they spent with us.
Everyhting fitted.
Everything was right.
I wish that feeling for everybody!
The party gave what it had promised:
Signing session and Special Apperance!
I would like to say that it gave more than that,
but as a TH fan you're never satisfied.
You never get enough of TH, and therefor the negative reactions was borned, wich was unjustified and unnessesary.
We got what we were promised and even more!
Tokio Hotel was closer to me on every level this evening and I am not dissapointed!
I truly wish the majority feels the same as I.

1/12
"It's raining here in Stockholm today..."
The weather fits my mood. I will admit though,
that the expected depression kept away better than I tought it would.
And happy am I for that!
 It's raining in Stockholm, but it only drizzling in my heart.
The sun is sneaking by the few raindrops and creating a rainbow.
Somehwere over the rainbow, where TH is placed in my heart.
They're there to stay!

Party Topp:
*Gustavs energy
*Free bar
*Meeting new people

Party Poop:
*Unjustified complain
*Fake fainting
*Fans who decides to act idiot
 
 
 

 
Here's the original text in Swedish:

Madeleine var namnet, och det Officiella Svenska TH Street Teamet leder jag.
Genom enomrt hårt arbete och kanske lite tur fick jag chansen att åka ner till
Tokio Hotels egna Party, vilek hölls för deras Fans som ett TACK för allt stöd i röstning och
rent allmänt.
"The Video Music Awards THANK YOU Fan Party" döptes det till, då fans från hela världen
hjälpte TH till vinst i "Best Newcomer" under VMAs!
Som mest 600 Fans från hela världen hade turen att få delta, och jag var en av dom!
Kära FRIDA läsare och TH Fans - Följ mig genom mina egna ord, till en av de bästa stunderna i mitt liv!

Från 28e November till den 2 December var jag på resande fot.
I ren förvirring klev jag nästan på fel buss, det första jag gjorde.
Var allt packat?
Var jag förberedd?
Huvudet hängde inte riktigt med.

Det började i Hudiksvall, med stopp i Stockholm för att sedan nå Hamburg stad.
Hamburg är staden i mitt hjärta, där jag både sett TH live samt bott under en tid.
Detta gjorde att hela grejen blev ännu bättre!

Jag och en av de vänner som var med mig på resan anlände till Hamburg den 29e November.
Där och då mötte vi upp med vår tredje vän som skulle hänga på även hon.
In checkning på Hotell och sedan var det bara att göra det bästa av den lilla tid man hade.
Det blev besök på Hamburgs Jul-Marknad, där vi mötte upp med det Official TH UK Street Teamet!
Tillsammans avnjöt vi Hamburg-Stad och utbytte spekulationer om morgondagens event.
Imorgon gällde det! Dagen D: Då INGET fick gå fel!

30.11.08

09.00

Hur börjar man en dag då allt måste gå rätt?
Svårt att säga. Vi började i alla fall med Hotell Frukost.
Vi försökte göra Hamburg-Stad igen under någon timme innan det var dags för Complete Makeover.
Men då allt är stängt i Hamburg på Söndagar var det lite svårt.
Det blev Julmarknad igen plus lunch/middag vid lilla Alster-sjön.

14.15

Tillbaka till Hotellet.
Nu gällde det! Total omvandling! Allt måste gå rätt; Kläder, hår, smink, ja ni fattar!
I ca. två timmar slogs vi om den enda spegeln i rummet och om vem som skulle tuppera vems hår.
Otroligt tjejigt, men vad annat att förvänta inför något liknande?
Efter allas omvadling, från Street Chicks till Fancy Party Stars, såg vi ut som om vi skulle
få uppleva en av de bästa kvällarna i våra liv.
Tänk så rätt vi hade ;)

16.30
Utanför Hühnerposten (Party Placet).

Insläppet skulle börja klockan 17.00
En halvtimme innan mötte vi upp med vår fjärde reskamrat som hörde till "vår grupp".
Folksamlingen var stor. De flesta var redan där; Förväntansfulla och frusna då det inte var allt för varmt ute och många var finklädda.
Fem minuter efter vår ankomst till Hühnerposten anlände UK Street Team som joinade oss.
Mötte även två helt sjukt söta Svenska tjejer som hade vunnit biljetter.

I allt för lång tid stod vi i en stor klunga utanför och väntade samtidigt som vi försökte hålla värmen.
Runt 17.10 började de sakta men säkert att släppa in två personer i taget.
I runda svängar tog det ca. en och en halv timme för oss att ta oss igenom första kön,
för att sedan slussas vidare till ännu en kö.
Vi var ännu inte inne i Hühnerposten utan stod återigen omgiven av andra förväntansfulla TH fans
från hela världen.

18.30
Spänningen låg i luften nu, då de släppte in små grupper med jämna mellanrum.
Jag och min vän fick äntligen kliva in i värmen och då började nerverna gå på högvarv.
Jackan hängdes in och vi mötte upp med de som vi tidigare tappat bort i kösystemet.

Vi möttes av ännu en kö som tack och lov nu var inomhus! Klänning i Hamburgs kyla var ingen hit!
Sista etappen nu! Med ett rosa band på handleden, TH stämpel på handen och pirr i kroppen slussades man till den slutgiltiga kön.

19.00
Jag stod i dörröppningen och där satt de. Jag reagerade starkare än jag förväntat och förberett mig på.
Dock intalade jag mig själv att min andning måste återgå till det normala innan jag nådde fram till bandet.
Fans runt omkring mig reagerade både mer hysteriskt än jag själv och vissa visade ingen reaktion alls.

Stående i kön betraktade jag dom alla fyra. "De är människor", kom jag på mig själv att tänka.
Medveten om detta faktum var jag naturligtvis redan innan. Men det är något speciellt med att se in
i människors ögon på nära håll. Man får se en del av personens själv genom deras ögon; som är fönstret in.
Det jag såg i Bills, Toms, Georgs och Gustavs själar var vackert! Lika vackert som jag hade föreställt mig.

Själva signeringen gick ut på, åtminstone för min del, att få så mycket tid med grabbsen som möjligt.
Många hade med sig fina foton på grabbarna de ville ha signerade, samt presenter av alla de slag!
Själv slängde jag fram ett random papper de fick signera. Visade sig senare att det var min biljett till
Partyt jag hade deras snirkliga namn på.
Under tiden jag hade med dom lyckades jag förvirra Bill med den present jag hade till honom och Tom.
Jag delade ett förstående moment med Tom då jag såg att han förstod syftet med den present jag just gett till Bill.
Med nöje avnjöt jag Georgs oerhörda vänlighet.
Skrämde även Gustav på en av de bästa sätten någonsin.
Förutom allt detta irriterade jag vakterna då jag tog för lång tid på mig i kön,
vilket jag känner på mig att fler gjorde ;)
Man vill vinna tid! Sekunder! Man vill även göra intryck, om det så ska vara att skrämma en stackars trummis till
döds ;)

19.10
Direkt efter signeringen blev man förd till det rum där själva Partyt helt tydligt skulle äga rum:
Red Lights, discokula, bar med gratis drinkar, dansgolv, musik och hundratals TH fans som dansade loss!

Då man återförentast med vänner och bekanta, varav man mött alla genom TH,
då dansade man till skorna brann eller åkte av!
Ingen visste vad som skulle hända härnäst. Man befann sig i total ovisshet.
Var detta allt?
Skulle vi inte få se dom något mer under kvällen?
Man försökte att koppla bort dessa tankar för att sedan dansa vidare.

20.00
Skrik! Skrik i massor!
På rad vandrade de in i rummet helt omgivna av vakter, vilket var tur då de praktiskt taget
gick rakt genom folkhavet!

På ena sidan rummet befann jag mig med mina vänner,
på andra sidan rummet placerade sig bandet.
Rummet var litet, så vi såg bra där vi stod: på vår lilla upphöjdnad och bandet på deras.

Bill presenterade en massa på Tyska, tackade oss Fans för vår support och fastslog att den här festen
var för oss!
Priser delades ut till tre lyckliga fans, och som jag förstod det fick de även gå och träffa bandet en sväng på deras
VIP sektion.
Vad jag har hört svimmade i alla fall två av de tre vinnarna, men jag såg det inte med egna ögon så det kan lika gärna vara bluff.
Rent generellt var avsvimmnigar lite av kvällens grej och ett av många ämnen att snacka om.
Det sägs att ca. 50 personer tuppade av under kvällen. Dock var minst hälften av det antalet fejkade, då de enbart ville få chansen att bli buren förbi bandet.
Vad är grejen med det?!
Några sekunder vid bandet, och sedan sittandes på "återhämtnings sektionen".
Enligt mig: Onödigt, dumt och jag förstår det inte.

Efter all presentation och prisutdelningar började Partyt på riktigt!
Inom dessa fyra väggar, i detta lilla rum, där dansade vi på vår sektion
och på andra sidan rummet festade TH.
Många stod ihoppackade längst fram vid bandet för att få se dom på nära håll hela tiden.
Detta var inget för mig! Jag var nöjd men min plats, där det fanns gott om plats för att dansa loss
då man samtidigt hade bra överblick och dessutom såg grabbarna bra rakt över rummet.

I högtalarna strömmade Lady GaGas låt "Just Dance".
Denna låt kom att bli oförglömlig för samtliga TH fans i detta rum,
då den annars så tysta och återhållsamma trummisen bestämde sig för att värma upp oss på riktigt!
Dansande och gestikulerande fick han oss alla på fall och ett enormt Party Mood infann sig!
De som fått för sig att Gustav är den "tysta och normala trummisen" även utanför alla intervjuer har fel.
Så fel man kan ha egentligen.
Gustav är en oförutsägbar och spontan människa som gärna delar med sig av sin galna sida!

Den dansande trummisen var en oerhörd syn och han gav oss alla mer energi än vad Red Bullen (som det bjöds på) någonsin skulle kunna ge!

Vi festade vidare, och jag såg över mot sektionen där bandet satt helt omgivna av vakter.
Vakter, för att undvika en Fan-Attack...
Det gick nästan att upprätthålla hela kvällen, fram tills att Georg bestämde sig för att lämna rummet.
Omgiven av vakter försöker han ta sig ut, och det funkade bra ända tills ett "fan" får för sig att
agera idiot.
Hon griper tag i Georgs jacka, och sliter den halvt av honom, för att sedan slungas i golvet av en vakt.
Hennes grepp om Georg verkade hårhänt och ett sådant beteende är oacceptabelt!
De har anordnat det här Partyt för oss fans, som ett stort Tack för vårt stöd,
och fansen kan inte ens uppföra sig!?
Otroligt dålig stil!

Incidenten suddades tillslut ut och partyt fortsatte: Fansen tillsammans med TH.
I samma rum, där vi delade samma luft, samma musik och samma upplevelser.






Hur beskriver man det som är perfekt med enbart ord?
Genom några sekunder blev de människor vilket sedan bekräftades under de ca. två timmar de spendrade med oss Fans.
Allt klaffade och allt stämde.
Jag hoppas verkligen att fler upplevde den känslan!

Partyt gav vad det lovade:
Signering och Special Appereance!
Jag skulle vilja påstå att det gav mer än det till och med,
men som TH fan är man aldrig nöjd.
Man får aldrig nog och därav uppstod en del negativa reaktioner som både var onödiga och obefogade.
Alla fick vad de blivit lovade och mer därtill!
Tokio Hotel kom mig närmare ikväll på alla plan och jag är inte besviken!
Jag hoppas att majoriteten känner precis som jag!

01.12.08

"Det regnar här i Stockholm idag..."
Vädret passar mitt humör. Dock ska det erkännas,
att den deprission jag trodde skulle infinna sig höll sig borta bättre än väntat.
Glad är jag för det!
Det regnar i Stockholm, men det enbart duggar i mitt hjärta.
Mellan de få regndroppar som faller tittar solen försiktigt fram och skapar en regnbåge.
Någonstans ovanför regbågen, där sitter TH i mitt hjärta.
De är där för att stanna!

Kvällens Topp:
*Gustavs energi!
*Gratis bar!
*Gemenskapen!

Kvällen Bott:
*Obefogat klagomål!
*Fejkade avsvimmningar!
*Fans som inte kan bete sig som folk!

Here's part of the main page of DW-WORLD.DE (Spanish Version):http://www.dw-world.de/dw/0,,653,00.html

 
[09.07.2008 ]


Bill Kaulitz- The phenomenon of Tokio Hotel


In Germany the teenagers are crazy for him, in France they love him and in the United States even the New York Times admires him. Bill Kaulitz is a phenomenon. What's behind of that face with makeup and dyed hair?

Bill is a character that polarizes. Some people love him and can't stop shouting if they are near him and some people hate him and stigmatize him as pretentious. One can argue in favor or against, but it can't be deny that the guy has talent.

His style, his charisma and his way of performing on stage are the factors that have caused the success of Tokio Hotel. He has an enormous capacity of handling publicity. But if he sometimes seems to be a kind and innocent guy, he can also be hard-headed when it comes to impose his will.

Lonely Child

Bill Kaulitz was born on september first 1989 in Leipzig, in the East of Germany. When his parents divorced, he went to live to Magdeburg with his mother and twin brother. Although he got good grades, he didn't like school. Since he went to a school in a neighboring village, he had to wake up at 5:30 am everyday and in the night he returned home late.

Since then he was an individualist. He didn't have many friends and didn't get along well with the teachers. He was a very petulant guy. He was always against the teachers and he complained in a very sophisticated way, demanding his rights as a student. For instance, he protested against his grades if the teachers didn't abide by the legal deadline for correcting the exams.

On the contrary, his mother Simone Kaulitz, a seamstress, had a lot of patience with him. His stepfather, Gordon Trümper, played the bass in a rock band and encouraged the twins to make music. Bill's music idol is Nena. The first album he bought and the first concert he went was of her.

He always knew he wanted to be a musician. Many times, his girlfriends didn't understand him when he prefered to go to the rehearsal room to play with his group or give a concert, than to go out with them. But at that time he already knew that you have to work hard to have success.

At school he already dressed in a very provocative way. His current style is not the effect of an idea of his record company or his manager. He is authentic. Since he was a kid he likes extraordinary clothes. Bill had his first piercing at 13 years old. The idea for his look came in a halloween party, the night of witches, when he dressed as a vampire. He liked the costume so much that he decided to adapt it in his daily live.

Clearly, that this esthetic was not liked by all his classmates and teachers. But that didn't matter to Bill. The purpose of his outfit is to jump into the view , is to provoke.


A postmodern work of art

His style now is a mixture of several elements of different youth movements. His hair is reminiscent of the 80s, his clothes contains influences of the satanist fashion, his face with his painted eyes is similar to those figures of the japanese animations films, the animes or manga. Moreover, he adds the androgyn element. He almost looks like a hybrid of a man and woman.

His whole apperance coincides a little with the style of the Emo-Kids or the pokemons, as they are called in Chile. They also have their hair dyed black and combed in a spectacular way. They also paint their eyes and wear tight pants. But it's only their style that at first sight links them to Bill. The shy and introverted attitude of the Emos has nothing to do with the singer.

He isn't Satanist either, a fan of the animes or the 80s. He only adapts certain elements of different subcultures and joins them in one character. Maybe is this mixture of styles what makes him so famous. He belongs to all groups and to none. It's a postmodern work of art.


To prevail against the adults

When with 15 years old he was becoming famous he had to defend his appearance for the first time. Tokio hotel's record company wants to convert the band into a typical boy-band. Part of that strategy is to change the presence of the four. Although the managers with whom he has to negotiate have more than twice his age, he didn't let them convince him and insists that the band can decide independently the way of dressing.

Today that is one of the reasons of the success of the group. Bill imposed himself against the so-called experts and he has been right. That experience gave him more security. He still entrench himself in the independence of the group and isn't afraid of the adults that want to treat him as a child.

With 18 years old he has learned to behave as a tough businessman. He persues consequently his objectives and surely he hasn't arrived to the end of his journey.

Hello everyone!


We are really sorry for the bad updates here. We are going to get better or I am anyway. Im gonna try to post news everyday. I hope you continue to come here for information.

Now I am going to give you all the information from the last few weeks that we haven't been updating.

The reason why there hasn't been any good updating is that we are in 9th grade and soon going to a new school and have to work really hard in school to get the grades we want so we can get into the school we want. But as I said I am going to try to get better with updating here!!

WORTH reading!

Only three years are enough to conquer the market of their country and gradually have joined fans worldwide that are folded unconditionally style. The most surprising is that they have become the phenomenon that nobody had heard of until now. They are Tokio Hotel, the German quartet which aims to tear down prejudices based on pure pop rock.

Not leading the rankings as the European and American hip-hop numbers, nor are they part of some community groups that have been catapulted to fame. No. But I have made a meteoric career, especially counting the age of each of its members: the twins Tom and Bill Kaulitz have only 18 years, reaching 19 Gustav Schäfer and Georg Listing, the highest, 21, and if we Since its debut in 2005, has sold more than five million copies of her three jobs, “Schrei”, “Zimmer 483″ and “Scream”-the latter, a compilation of his previous two albums, but translated into English, it is not surprising that have come strongly to the American market. So if you’ve never heard the name of this band, You better not lose track.

Despite his vocalist Bill Kaulitz comparisons strongly dislike him, for a unique and unparalleled, the roots of Tokio Hotel are in Green Day and Nena (German singer labeled under the new wave and pop); but also confess a particular closeness to the music of Fall Out Boy and Yellowcard. Also, within the same search for an unparalleled style, aesthetics Tokyo Hotel shows the personality and tastes of each of its members. Georg, the bassist, made clear his preference for the punk and pop artists like Billy Talent and Sum 41, Gustav, battery, is the heaviest of tastes, having among its favorite Metallica and System of a Down, Tom, guitarist, prefers hip hop and Bill includes a favorite Placebo, Coldplay and Nena.

Not for nothing did the eye-catching and different images of each of the boys, especially its frontman, causing much controversy even within his own fans, and burlesque, in the music press. But they do not give too much importance: they know that their fans identify with those diverse identities and do not try to hide … “Tokio Hotel is the only thing we have in common,” states Tom. The label Universal knew immediately, so that after the expiry of his contract with Sony BMG, the band changed its name to Tokio Hotel and Devilish prepared for the massive invasion.

But the story begins long before. The twins were involved in music since they were children, declaring his passionate love for her command of the guitar and voice and even tocatas performing in bars and clubs. “One night we played in a club called Groninger Bad where Georg and Gustav, which was known from school, we were watching from the public. Obviously we begged to be part of the band, so that way we got to play together,” Tom said about the beginnings of Tokio Hotel.

It will not take long since left behind the name Devilish to record his first album, “Schrei”, which immediately won the German public, consistent with the rapid departure of “Zimmer 483″. But neither of them would have expected a contingent of fans in the United States, which were forced to write in English a collection of songs from her two albums, entitled “Scream”, which was launched only a few months ago in North America.

The task was complicated, since none of the boys handled the language with perfection and strive to translate their lyrics literally terms Anglos not to lose a word of content they wanted to express. However, the heaviest task took Bill, since he was the only one who had to return to the studio to create these new versions.

“Our lyrics are very important to us and we want everyone to understand, said the singer.” When people from other countries began to listen to our music, we believe in making an English version of certain songs … I had to return to the studio, I wanted to play perfect, as a native speaker. I did not want someone who apparently was trying to sing in English. It took a while, but I’m happy with the outcome. ”
The reaction that has caused the market gringo was better than expected. “It’s very difficult to have fans in other countries, especially in the United States because it is such a place, so big, which is known to be complicated. We are thrilled merely having people who will follow us. In America, we see a fan and say : ‘we are so proud! We have a fan! “, said Bill. Actually, Tokio Hotel had a live appearance on TRL from Times Square in New York and filled the Roxy Theater in Hollywood, in its first show in the land of Uncle Sam.
“We return to Europe to start recording a new album and then we will do it in English. Later, we return to the United States for a tour,” said Tom. The specific response of some of his followers has not been discreet: band members say that a star christened with the name Tokio Hotel and even a girl designed a Mini Cooper with the multi-style group.

That’s why the Germans do not want to lose the opportunity to establish contact with people who passionately listening to his songs. With an exclusive channel on YouTube and his own MySpace site, state that “this is the way we connect with the world. We try to know and when we go to their countries, and played all our shows, we see them in person . But Bill makes it clear that “we do not have private accounts on MySpace, we found only in the official chats, so if anyone is going through us, you do not have.
But what is behind the music of Tokio Hotel? What attracts so many people, beyond appearances? The singer said that “what we want is that people feel we played with. I write about our lives and things that you experience or have become our friends. For us one of the most important things in life is to be free and do whatever we want, but avoid the rules. We’re trying to live our dreams and not give up, without expressing the views of the rest. ”

After all this outbreak of passionate fanaticism by the Germans, and many wonder if this is reduced to only a media phenomenon, industry or the era. The truth is that they do not want to know: are enjoying the best years of his life. “The only thing we do is show, being on stage and play as long as we can, I hope it is forever,” says Bill. It has always been our dream and I’m focused on making this a reality. ”
Right in the middle of their crazy tour of Europe, we had the opportunity to speak by telephone with vocalist Bill Kaulitz, who declared his unconditional fans briefly and told us some important details to better understand Tokio Hotel.

Well, first of all I would like to congratulate them for the tremendous success we have achieved world … You started making music at an early age. How were the comments from people close to you as your friends or your family, in terms of progress they have lived since his early days as a band so far?
“Well, family and friends support us a lot, they are all very happy for us. This is obviously not easy because we travel all the time and very little at home. We started very young, with 15 years to start our first Steps and the truth is that for all was a big change. ”

In adolescence is sometimes not very clear which way to go or how to define, but you seemed very confident at the time of that music was his lifestyle. How did they get to make that decision so crucial?
“Yes, it is true that we decided very early, but as we have progressed, we realized that the decision was correct. We do this as long as we can and be on stage … and the truth is that we have to thank our fans for everything. ”

Initially, the band called Devilish, what made them change their name to Tokio Hotel?
“What happened was that we needed a name that was appropriate to the four that make up the group and chose Tokyo because it is a great metropolis, a great city and we are all people who likes the city. And we wanted a symbol that was representative our home, that’s why we chose the hotel. ”

One aspect that causes most controversial Tokyo Hotel, even within the same fans, is the aesthetic of the band. Do you always planned to have an appealing appearance?
“Yes, when you look at the pictures of the group, it is clear that there are four different styles. We are like that. What is your personality is reflected in the image of the band, is not that we represent a role at all, but that what you see is what we are. ”

Few bands have achieved success in Germany at the global level, Rammstein is perhaps the last that we have witnessed. What are the models to follow music Tokio Hotel?
“Well, the truth is that we have no model, because from the beginning we wanted to follow our own style. We have not made any version of any band we have not planned ahead, because we are not interested, we are four people with four different styles different music. ”

“Scream”, the compilation contains a selection of songs from her first two albums, was his first recording in English. Since we have achieved tremendous success in the United States and their own fans sing songs in German, have you thought about how it will be their next release? You recorded in both languages?
“In reality we will continue as before, recording the album in two languages, German course because it is our native language and because I write the songs in German … my English, the truth is not very good. But anyway try to do what we have done so far, record the items and then translate them as was the case of “Scream.” And in the end, as has happened in the United States, all the fans end up singing in German. ”
We know roughly that the American public is very good. What is the deal every day with the fans? How have you reacted against this warm welcome?
“Dealing with the fans has been very good and so far we have not suffered any disappointment. In the United States have been there at the foot of the canyon, giving us strength and we have made some great shows. We love it, our connection with them is excellent. ”

In addition, Tokio Hotel has a channel on YouTube and MySpace on its own site, creating a much more direct relationship with the music and life of the band. Do you read the comments posted by fans or try not to get influenced by the views of the people?
“Yes, it is true, we are very Internet, check our e-mails, always from side to side, but we can read what fans write us, what interests them, is a useful tool to be as close as possible our supporters. We try to be updated so that all our supporters in all countries know what is happening with the band. We are very interested in what they think and what they want. We try wherever possible to fulfill their wishes, because it is true that everything we do is mainly due to them. ”
In Chile there is a growing body of fans of Tokio Hotel. How do you feel that in places as remote as it has people who listen to your music and your fans are declared?
“For us it is amazing to know that there are fans all over the world who listen to our music. Just three years we had our first hit in Germany and we seemed utterly incredible to reach this success. Now, to other countries and other continents is something that never would have counted. ”

Did you know?
The favorite activity of all members of the group, except Gustav is resting. Bill confesses that when you have days off all you trying to do is sleep late, like Tom and Georg. For their part, prefer to leave the drummer to ride and get together with friends.
