The rockers from Germany answer your Twitter and Facebook queries
“We can’t believe we are in Asia. It’s so crazy and cool to discover we have fans here. We never expected our music to reach so far but when you fly around the world and see fans singing along to your songs – that’s the dream of every band.” – Bill Kaulitz

Tokio Hotel Fanfare
Interview by Geraldine Jeremiah
If I weren’t a fan before meeting Tokio Hotel, I certainly am one now. There is absolutely everything to like about them. Their music is out of this world, they are larger than life showmen onstage and in person, they are the coolest, funniest guys you could have the pleasure of hanging out with. The best perk though about being a Tokio Hotel fan is the guys absolutely treasure you.
During Galaxie’s 15-minute interview with Tokio Hotel on their visit here in Malaysia, it was impossible to get straight answers from Bill and Tom Kaulitz, George Listing and Gustav Schafer.
However, when it comes to matters of their fans, the guys are dead serious.
Which is why, Tokio Hotel were absolutely thrilled to receive your questions asked via Twitter and Facebook. Be advised though that it was hard to keep a straight face at some of their anwers.
Since quite a number of questions on our list concerned Bill’s hair, we decided to go with that first.
Bill, can you explain why there is a worldwide obsession with your hair?
I don’t know. I just like to experiment and try new things out with my hair. Before this, I had dreadlocks.
Bill, have you tried to convince the rest of the guys to do hair makeovers?
Bill: I hope they would, but …
Tom, George, Gustav: No! Never, ever.
Tokio Hotel, since you guys are clearly “living the dream” are there any dreams that you haven’t fulfilled?
Bill: One of our dreams as a band that we really wish for is to go to Tokyo. We’ve never been there yet. A Grammy award would also be nice.
Tom, what’s the reason you won’t get a tattoo?
Tom: I don’t know. I’ve thought about it.
Bill: He’s afraid. He’s scared to get a tattoo.
Bill, if you had your own fashion collection what kind of clothes would it include?
Bill: I can’t decide if it will be the stuff I wear or something completely different. But I do know that I really want to do something in the future that involves a collection because I love to design and be creative when it comes to fashion.
Is George still messing up his chords?
Tom: (joking) He can’t play good bass.
George: That’s not true.
Tom: I don’t know why because I taught Gustav the drums and he plays really well but I can’t seem to teach George. He is not talented. I think that is the main problem.
George: That’s not true, that’s not true.
Tokio Hotel, what are you going to do with all your stage costumes and The Dogs Unleashed motorbike once the tour wraps?
Bill: That’s going to be interesting when the time comes because my closets at home are already full. I have no place to put them! The motorbike, we thought of putting in the garden.
Bill, have you ever gone public without your makeup?
When I’m on vacation or travelling I don’t usually have makeup on and that’s not really a problem for me. But then again, I also feel more like myself when I do.
Bill and Tom, you’ve mentioned being “more than twins.” What does this mean?
Tom: We are identical twins and the connection between us is very strong. We are like soulmates as well. I know what he is thinking the second he thinks it.
Bill: I guess you could say we are almost like one person.
George and Gustav, what is it like working with Tom and Bill?
Bill: I think it is an honour for them to be working with us.
George: Sometimes it is a little bit annoying because they talk the whole day. But, we have been a band for 10 years and we feel more like brothers.
Tokio Hotel, what do you think of Asian girls?
Tom: Really good! We were in Singapore and we saw some fans, and a lot of them are very beautiful girls. And it’s the same when we arrived in Malaysia. All good, really good.
George: Tom is very happy.

TOKIO HOTEL LIVE IN MALAYSIA
1 May 2010
Central Park Avenue,
1 Utama, Petaling Jaya.
It had been a long day for those who had waited under the scorching afternoon sun just to get a good spot in front of the stage. But even when the clouds turned dark in typical Malaysian fashion, no one was willing to leave their spots in front of the new wing of One Utama. They weren’t moving for anything!
But then at 9.15pm, when the stage lights finally dimmed and the music, that had kept them entertained while waiting, died, the dead-tired fans found new life in their limbs. You didn’t have to be a genius to know what was coming next!
First, Gustav Schäfer took up his position behind the drums. Next came Georg Listing and Tom Kaulitz. And then, the one and only Bill Kaulitz, dressed from head to toe in black and sporting freakishly tight trousers!
Without uttering a word to their fans, the band kicked things off immediately with Noise, a song that, well, managed to generate a whole lotta noise from the thousands who’d come to watch Tokio Hotel.
The band quickly moved into another tune and it wasn’t until after their third song that Bill finally spoke to the crowd.
For a German guy from the suburbs, Bill’s command of English isn’t all that bad really. Meaning to say, you could understand him, whether he was singing or interacting with the crowd. Yes, the interaction was limited to things like “thank you everyone” and “feels good to be in Malaysia”, yet you could tell that he and the band were really making an effort to connect with TH’s Malaysian fans.
After their fourth song, Point Of Love, the four members of Tokio Hotel stepped off the stage, only to reappear minutes later with World Behind My Wall, which got the crowd screaming some more and singing along.
The band then moved into hits Ready, Set, Go!, Automatic and Forever Now. And Bill’s vocals were pitch-perfect throughout, regardless of how much he moved onstage. Amazingly too, his hair retained its spikiness and his makeup showed no signs of running.
Finally, after an hour and 11 songs, TH waved goodbye and walked offstage. The crowd, however, wanted more and after consistent chants of “encore”, Gustav, Georg, Tom and Bill came back out and obliged with Monsoon. Surprisingly though, the band played the original German version of that song.
Before leaving the stage for the final time, Bill spoke to the crowd one last time. “Thank you everyone. See you next time!” he said, hinting that the band could be coming back to our shores soon. And if you think that’s just a standard line used by all frontmen, word has it that TH coming back is a real possibility. According to the event’s organizer, “Tokio Hotel will be back in Malaysia” as they are “doing something with MTV” sometime soon. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed then.
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE TOKIO HOTEL IN MALAYSIA. AGAIN. PLEASE.
