it is not a picture but a little interview about andreas, twins best friend:
Andreas - the twins best friend TOTP: How do you got to know Andreas? BILL: He went to school in Wolmirstedt with us. I did not have many friends besides him at school. Tom and I left the school in 10 th class. Andreas expires this year.
TOTP: Are you and Andreas equal?
TOM: He is just like us. Good friends must be the same. And that is what we are.
TOTP: Is he just as intense as you are?
BILL: Um, I think he is the right mix. Sometimes it’s very exciting. We will match perfectly. He is as spontaneous as Tom and I, and we have the same humor.Det is very important to me in terms of friends, that we can laugh together.
TOTP: How do you know that you can rely on him?
TOM: It comes with the time.. We have known him for 7 years now, and we can trust him, because he was on our side from the beginning and he knows everything about us.
BILL: We’ve been friends so loong.So hes with all my close friends - I knew from the outset that I could rely on the judgement. And judgement is often prove on that I was right.
TOTP: Do Andreas calm down you when you argue?
TOM: No, not at all. He is always on the side he thinks is right.
TOTP: Tell him to others that he is friends with the guys from TH?
BILL: He would never do that . He and my other friends are very reserved with regard to det.When we meet, we never talk about the band, with the exception of entirely different things.When we are with our friends, we are alwayd private.
TOTP: Are you talking frequently with him on the phone?
BILL: Every day .I talk to my parents and my friends daily.Im always on the phone.
TOTP: Has Andreas wanted to join TH?
TOM: We 4 have been together for 7 years, and we will always be that we now.It will not become more member .Andreas is the drummer in his own band.
TOTP: Will he persecuted by your fans?
BILL: There are in some limits.We’re working hard to keep our friends outside of everything, because we know what it is like to be in the public’s focus.
It was in France, 13/11/07 i think, for a emission call "Le Grand Journal". Tokio Hotel played "Spring Nicht" and during the soundcheks Saki was dancing and made a play back of Sprng Nicht :') That was so gorgeous x) (sorry for mistakes :s)
Well i just read this blog on bebo and thought i would post it here:-
VSD Hamburg - To Be Replaced
Onerva69 and Dreamhunter, Austrian fans on Livejournal, have alerted the fandom with some alarming news. At Tokio Hotel’s US concert in May, they spoke with security guards Dirk and Tobi and topics turned to serious matters. It seems that their security team has been facing several difficulties since the boys landed on American soil. Fans have apparently been wilder than usual, asking for autographs and pictures, thereby preventing these body guards from executing their profession. Click below to read firsthand about what went on in Onerva69’s and Dreamhunter’s conversation with Dirk and Tobi.
First off: This is not meant to cause any fights like “Which country has the crazier fans?” or something crazy like that, because the following is actually something that could make our life at concerts much more miserable, and so it should be taken seriously.
After the concerts in the US in May dreamhunter & me talked to Dirk & Tobi from VSD Hamburg, and they told us about several problems they had in America more than in other countries. One of them was that quite a big part of the fans were lacking respect towards them.
People did fangirly screaming at them, trying to take pictures, asking for autographs,… Of course, this happens at every concert in every country from time to time, but it must have been especially bad at the US gigs. So bad that VSD had problems doing what they are supposed to do: WORKING! Keeping us SAFE! Making the concert a good experience for all of us. And no matter how much you talk & squee about them online, in real life they are nobody to fangirl over, but persons of authority! You fucking do what they tell you, no questions asked.
Also, something really bad must have happened! They are not talking about it directly, but there must have happend something that caused VSD to go trough major changes right now:
- They were hardly present at all at the european summer concerts
- Several securities got shifted from TH Security to other departments (including my favourite ;_; )
- There are heavy rumors about Saki being exchanged and VSD getting a new Head of Security
- Same heavy rumors about the whole VSD being exchanged for a new Security Team
Why this matters so much to me and many other fans? Because VSD and TH just belong together. I always felt relaxed & safe when they were around. And after experiencing the summer concerts without them (and being almost smushed to death in the process several times because any other security just can’t handle TH fans, it seems) it made me even more realize what an awesome security they actually are.
Plus, most of them are fun guys to talk to. When everything is okay at the venue, they are always in for a bit of flirting and joking around. They made waiting in line so much more enjoyable. I’m afraid if TH has to get a new Security Team altogether, it all will change. The new Security will probably be told not to react to the fans at all and the fun times are gonna be over. And they will make sure no one starts “fangirling” over them ever again.

Saki is NOT in America with them for this tour.
I saw that post - it originated on Live Journal - and I have to say, it was unsettling and very weird not to see VSD Hamburg anywhere in Paris. It was also personally inconvenient for us. I'd hate to see them go.
