BILD: You’ve just arrived in Los Angeles. What is the difference for you between L.A. and New York?
Bill: These are two entirely different worlds for me. New York is much more European. L.A. is more like what a European imagines as America.
BILD: Tomorrow you’ll play the first complete concert after Bill’s OP in Hollywood. Are you excited?
Bill: Yes, sure, shit, we’re in panic because of our excitement. Furthermore it’s the only US-concert. We are always nervous, but this time it’s even worse.
BILD: How do you feel now after you’re so successful in the USA?
Tom: We are so happy about the big fan-resonance here in the USA, but nevertheless I see the whole thing more as a first succès dèstime.
BILD: You call that a succès dèstime? Usually you’re not that modest.
Tom: Don’t worry, when we talk the next time about girls, then I’ll be immodest again for sure (laughs) No, seriously: I believe the really big USA-success will only come with complete new and worldwide not released songs. We have the aim to release the third album worldwide at the same time.
Bill: But we’re of course very happy anyway and thankful for what happens here right now in the USA. Some months ago we would never have expected that. But we just don’t want to overrate the US-success so far.
