You have a Swiss German favorite word? Birebitzeli.

Mr Grönemeyer, when did you gegreint last?
Why you ask? Well possible that the emergence of the new plate even close to this. It was a long process, a racking noise. I have posted a total of 75 texts.

I ask because it is one of the words I've learned by you. You have always words and passages in their texts that let you sit up and take notice.
Nice of you to say that. This is a nice Moment, when one suddenly so a word, contrary to flies. I think that a Text must always have something Mischievous.

What do you mean?
Well, I think I'm a very melodic type. My music is very nice. Almost too good – at the border of the Kitsch. Therefore, the Text must anwürzen the correct. The need to pepper. Otherwise it is not a Rock ’n’.

An example?
"Bochum, I come to you", is a stupid sentence. No longer would I have to write today. In the same way as "men of excavators such as stupid". But it must, of course nerves a bit. It's a bit of friction must arise. I have trained over the years.

"Bochum", from the eponymous fifth Album.

How was the way to go?
Stony. I've been to the fourth Album because of the lack of success of my record company released.

To right?
Well, they had to stop investing money. The first record has sold 500, the second 400 times. "Mixed feelings"-15 000 times. But moving everything in deep red. "Bochum" was then released in the case of a new record company. It was the first Album I produced myself.

Has driven the lack of success to more pepper?
Nope. I've also written a couple before right sharp songs. I wanted to make it just right. Good texts in English were scarce. Sung, I would have. But the language of sass "Bochum" safe for the first Time-point REC. Then the gigantic success set in.

he Has changed you?
He has pleased me. And he has given me the opportunity to think bigger. But I was not unhappy. I was studying with 17 Musical Director of the theatre in Bochum, I started then, music, Sciences and law. I got me a Crick in my never to succeed.

I will also always political, a little confused. The part for me for rock music.Herbert Grönemeyer

the diversity in their music from the theatre?
I learned at the theatre, out of Chaos beauty can arise. Especially the time with the Director Peter Zadek has helped me, the madness of me to tease out. And the mess I'm cultivating. I write ten texts at a time. Everything is full of paper.

you are an absolute special now have a position in their home country. You are something of the Seismograph of the German state.
So you can't see, of course, yourself. I just noticed that what I say, meets with a degree of interest. I will also always political, a little confused. The part for me for rock music. And that seems to surprise people today, interestingly.

The law of slip and the non-completion of the reunification of big topics.
Yes. I see my relationship to Germany as a relationship. And since you have articulated the things that don't fit. The Fears, the Worries – as well as the good moments.

Now they are touring again by your home country. What was the feeling like?
I like Germany. I think the country is versatile, has a fascinating facets. To me the diversity of a whole lot of Fun – and on the Tour you get the one-to-one. The Rhine countries are, by nature, in a good mood and excited, but when you get there. The Northern Germans are a bit more restrained. The do not want to go home. Each Region has its own peculiarities.


How does it feel to play in Switzerland?
the First time it is touched, even after all these years, that in another country people will come. I have seen the Swiss audience as a wonderful, differentiated, and affectionate. The Swiss in General have a good sense of Humor. Very dry, very quiet. Since you can make at the supermarket checkout is also a joke. Try that in Berlin.

you are very much in love language. You have a Swiss German favorite word?
"Birebitzeli". (laughing extensively), Or phrases such as "Gömmer go poschte?". I like the language is misleading. I find it too erotic. Hard it gets, if the Swiss get angry. Then you have to dress warmly.

you Understand the dialect?
Yes, I had long a relationship with one from Zurich, and was very often there. Therefore I would say: 80 percent.

Back to the artists Grönemeyer: you have mentioned the noise, the collection of texts. You with the years relaxed?
it would be Nice. But since I am myself too much in the way of that. You want to but again and again prove. The pop world in which I move, live from the Impetuous. And I am now 62. Since they are not quite so impetuous.

How do you deal with it?
trying To quiet give songs the same voltage and intensity. The inner force, you want to keep up to the last second. As the gentlemen from the Buena Vista Social Club, with over 90 on the stage.

A Plan for Herbert Grönemeyer?
The stage is a magical place. When one is with his Band up there and all of a sudden sound, a the marrow of their bones. You want to savor for as long as possible.
