Tokio Hotel is a German band founded in Magdeburg, Germany in 2001 by singer Bill Kaulitz, guitarist Tom Kaulitz, bassistGeorgListinganddrummerGustav Schäfer. The four met in 2001 after a live show in a Magdeburg club, where Listing and Schäfer,who knew each otherfrommusicschool, watchedfrom the audience while Bill and Tom Kaulitz played on the stage.

After Bill Kaulitz’s participation in a children’s Star Search in 2003 at age thirteen (which he lost in the quarter-final), he wasdiscoveredbymusicproducerPeter Hoffmann. Devilish changed their name to Tokio Hotel: “Tokio” is the German spelling of theJapanese city Tokyo, due to alove ofthe city,and“Hotel” due to their constant touring and living in hotels.

Soon after Sony BMG took them under contract, Hoffmann hired David Jost and Pat Benzner into the team of creators and authors,and hadthemgivetheteens instruction on songwriting and instrument playing; most of the songs of the first album were written byHoffmann, Jost andBenzer(includingthesingles Scream and Rescue Me which were completely written by them), only the singlePlayUnendlichkeit was writtencompletely byTokioHotelthemselves. However, shortly before release of their first album, Sonyterminated their contract. In 2005, UniversalMusic Group took TokioHotelundercontract and developed a marketing plan. The bandhas now become one of the biggest acts from Germany. « hide
