Sascha: Well, then tell me what you experienced in the last weeks…
Bill: Well, we were in Asia, and uhm… yeah, we had a concert there, a small one, and we met our fans there for the first time, so to say it was the very first start..
Tom: Oh yes, that was really good.
Bill: ..that was very exciting because you fly so far and then it’s a totally different culture and totally different people, and the people can sing along though.
Tom: We had a good show.
Bill: ..yeah, we had a good show.
Tom: In Malaysia we had a real show, how long did we play? An hour or something..
Tom: ..and then, uhm.. then we were in Taiwan, we had a small acoustic session there. It was really good.
Sascha: What is the craziest thing which happened to you in the last time?
Bill: The craziest thing… Well, Sascha, I don’t know it!
Sascha: But was there one thing in Asia, which happened to you, where you thought “Woah, crazy!”?
Tom: We ate crazy things..
Bill: Yeah, we ate some weird stuff.. well, once we went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner with a colleague, and there we tried some desserts. Some weird stuff, which you actually don’t get here and…
Tom: We’re vegetarians, so we had been discussing the whole day with all the people there and yeah.. we ate Chinese food and tried vegetarian stuff, some vegetables and fruits, which you just know there and which are also growing just there, and I also don’t know anymore what kind of food it was, but the one or other tasted really weirdly.
Bill: So, they were really things which you don’t know here.
Woman: Did you also have diarrhea once? *laughs*
Bill: That is Georg’s special topic.
Georg: I can’t remember anymore, actually.
Tom: I can remember that something … (sorry, I didn’t get it, Tom is mumbling too much) … But he always has a bit diarrhea …
Sascha: Are you careful with the food then?
Bill: Uhm.. well, as long as it’s vegetarian, I’m really willing to try it, but of course I was a bit afraid in China, we actually weren’t there, but there you eat cats and dogs and so on as well, which is really a no-go for me. Of course I informed myself why this happens and so, and I find it really really horrible, but as long as I knew what it was and that it wasn’t an animal, we tried it, so we were really… But you know us, we’re always really usual, we always eat just pizza, pizza and pasta, and there [in Asia] it was like that, too, actually. We tried some things out…
Tom: It was just once…
Bill: In a TV-Show we also drank such a weird drink and
Georg: … tea with milk or something..
Bill: ..yeah, tea with milk
Georg: ..and such small jelly balls..
Bill: ..but it was really cool, because we had a kind of big drinking straw and the small jelly ball came through this..
Tom: Speaking of crazy things… the craziest thing which happened to us in Asia was at the arrival. As soon as you arrived you have to sign something which says that you get punished with the death penalty if you bring along drugs..
Bill: They cut your head off! *laughs* No…
Tom: No.. but kinda.. means that you have to sign something which says that if you bring drugs along with you, and you also don’t know exactly what is allowed and what’s not allowed, then they cut your head off..
Georg: You just have to bring along the wrong medicament with you, then it’s over..
Sascha: Okay.. but you didn’t have something with you, right?
Bill: No, we didn’t have drugs..
Woman: Did anyone offer you something?
Tom: Well, you stand there in Singapore and they’re very very strict, so all in all it was the cleanest city I’ve ever seen..
Bill: You barely get out there..
Tom: You’re also not allowed to spit chewing gums on streets and so on..
Bill: But I made it anyway!
Sascha: And nothing happened?
Bill: I didn’t think of it in that moment! I really didn’t think of it! Everybody told me first “Don’t do that!”, but then I was sitting in the car and…
Tom: But I’m gonna make a phone call and at the next trip…
Bill: … but Singapore was really impressing, all of us didn’t expect that, it was really the most beautiful city I’ve been to in a long time. It was really really beautiful, we had a great hotel and a really good time, so… yeah, it was really good.
Sascha: What are you planning to do in the next time?
Bill: Next we’ll go to Asia again, we’re gonna do another MTV Worldstage there, and we’ll be in China for the first time, we’ll be in a TV show there and yeah, first we’ll be in Asia again.
Tom: Besides we’re always planning. Currently we’re having a rather relaxing time, we’re just back from our tour, so to say…
Bill: And of course our Tour DVD will be released, in July, but don’t ask me about the exact date…
Tom: In summer, definitely
Bill: In summer… and the Live album… Tom and me just released the final cuts of the Live DVD, it will be really good, we recorded the concert in Milan. And it just goes on.. we want to play a tour in South America this year, and there also will be more concerts in Asia…
Woman: Do you even get around to do sports, do you have hobbies or so..?
Bill: No, but we never have been doing sports so far, well I have to say that I’m totally unathletic. I went on the treadmill for the tour, but it was unnecessary.
Georg: 2 times?
Bill: No no no, this time I did it really intensely. I have to defend myself, I really pulled it through, I was with Tom…
Tom: For two weeks…
Bill: … I was even on the treadmill in my vacation..
Tom: But Tom doesn’t go running…
Bill: I see.. no, I just wanted to get condition and… but you totally can forget that..
Woman: But doesn’t it have a bad effect when you can’t do sports that extremely..?
Tom: Well, it’s simple, of course I just look better…
Bill: Well, I never have been doing sports, so I don’t know that, but I’m living unhealthy anyway.. I smoke like a chimney and eat pizza all day long..
Tom: You smoke?!
Bill: Nah, just now and then…
Sascha (to Tom): But you do sports?
Tom: Just when I get round to do it.. I’m not a sport fetichist.
Georg: Nah, but Tom is.. he’s actually everyday at McFit’s.
Woman (to Gustav and Georg): And what about you two? Are you doing sport?
Tom: Georg just waited for the moment in which you’ll ask him about that… And yes, Georg works out…
Georg: Now and then..
Tom: We actually call him the thoroughly fit Leonardo di Caprio.
Sascha: And Gustav?
Bill: With Gustav the question arises..
Tom: Gustav is “Dickie” (like “tubbo” or something)
Sascha: But why are you actually dissing him [Gustav] all the time?
Bill: Him? Just see what Georg gets..!
Sascha: But Gustav always gets dissed and you say that he is too fat.
Bill: In fact, Tom and me get discriminated all day long in this world!
[…] (they’re just mumbling a bit, I can’t understand it)
Bill: But as soon as the door closes, it’s us who get dissed and then there’s a lot going on!
Sascha: Then you shellac them?
Sascha (to Gustav): Is it mean if they’re dissing you in interviews all the time?
Georg: That’s totally mean..
Gustav: That’s “doofi” (doof = dumb), I find it really “blödi” of them.. (blöd = stupid) [He always puts an “i” to the end of the word, it sounds more childish)
Tom: But.. but.. but what else.. Bill has a girlfriend..
Sascha: What’s her name?
Bill: Oh Tom, man!
Sascha: What’s her name?
Bill: …Jacqueline. *laughs*
Woman: From Magdeburg?
Georg: Jacqueline Chantal.
Bill: She has short, red hair. *laughs*
Bill: No, it hasn’t happened anything new..
Woman: Why doesn’t it work?
Sascha (to Tom): What about you?
Tom: No, sam here.. not a solid relationship, at least… I want to have a solid relationship, I told it already once…
Bill: But Georg is still in a relationship with his girlfriend *claps hands*
Sascha: Wedding? Engagement?
Bill: Jaja, he’s been planning it all the while!
Tom: He’s urging for it, because he can have sex for the first time after wedding.
Bill: Maybe we can give here a hidden message that actually Georg wants to get a wedding proposal. He doesn’t want to propose to his girlfriend, he actually wants to GET a wedding proposal.
Georg: Nah, first we’ll shoot “Georg and … in love” and then…
Tom: But to be honest, we’re actually thinking about what we’ll do when Georg becomes a father..
Bill: Yeah… it could happen..
Tom: In the studio I play the bass anyway.. but on tour it will be a problem..
Sascha: Do you actually want to have children soon?
Georg: No, not soon.
Sascha: But somewhen..?
Georg: Somewhen… with 40.
Woman (to Bill): Will you babysit then?
Woman: Will you babysit then?
Bill: No way!
Georg: For God’s sake! … I won’t give them my children!
Bill: But I think I’m actually not capable to do it.. I have to say we’re fully stretched with our 4 dogs, in principle that’s like to have children..
Tom: But I have to say, I have very good names for my own children.. I actually don’t want to have children, but I would have good names for them..
Bill: Yeah, but you don’t want to say that name, so why do you tell it?
Tom: No no no, I won’t tell it, I’m just saying..
Bill: We actually often talk about the names of our children, but we don’t want to have children..
Tom: I’m creative when it comes to finding names..
Georg: Tom Junior!
Sascha: Bill Junior… Billette
Sascha (to Gustav): And you’re single, too?
Sascha (to Bill): So, Adam Lambert is totally in love with you, how do you find that?
Bill: I actually don’t know about that exactly.. I have to say that I actually don’t know him..
Sascha: But he told me that
Bill: I don’t know him exactly.. or rather I don’t know him at all.
Tom: We always get asked about Adam Lambert, but we don’t know him..
Bill: No, we don’t know him, I’ve never met him, so far. I don’t know a lot of his music at all, I just saw his a bit of his video and the song, but I don’t know him at all.
Woman: Would you actually like to get to know him?
Bill: Uhm.. I can’t say that.. It depends on how he is.. well, if you meet somewhere, then of course, why not.. but it hasn’t happened so far.
Sascha: Okay, then…
Woman: Thank you.
