How's life in L.A? And what do you think about the climate?
- The climate is awesome, always great weather, and great musicians... I love it. :)

What's the worst/best with L.A/the U.S? And what makes it so different from Germany? (-Jess/Vewqa/Rania)
- The traffic is HORRIBLE. There is no public transport opportunities, and LA is just HUGE with very long distances... So basically, without a car, you are fucked. big time. And the food here is not really good, its like... European food, but always a really sweetened, unhealthy version of it. :)

How are you doing? How did you like the concert in Paris?
I am fine and I am doing many new stuff now. It was a very cool and energetic concert.

What do you still have in mind from the concert?
How passionate the fans are.

Did you like the presents from the fans?
Yes, I think they took a lot of work! Thanks!

Why did you decide to play with Piazu Manju? It's a music from rock to ska.
It's rock with ska influences. This music is very energetic. I saw them play live a couple of times before I joined the band - and they made me dance!

You've left Germany to permanently settle down in Los Angeles, can you tell us something about your decision and how you feel there?
I feel great here, the sun is shining all the time and I am happy. Actually, I have to admit, I don't miss home at all.

You are recording new sogs on Myspace, we can imagine you want to release a solo album in a short while. Do you have any idea yet that you'd like to realize?
Hmmmmm a bit. I wrote and recorded the songs by now because of my joy of music :D I didn't start collecting the songs for the album yet, for the start I would like to play some acoustic concerts in local bars in LA and I want to have the contact to local radios, which could play my songs. I like to be on the road and here are many pubs and sympathic places, where I'd be able to play. But it is sure that the solo album will be next, when the right time will come. I'll continue to record new songs on Myspace, Reverbnation and this kind of sites.

We are able to hear that yoaur songs are recorded in a good quality, did you record them in Los Angeles?
Yes, I started to work here with some really sympathic people and I recorded here a couple of songs. It's really different to work here, because the way of working, and recording and playing is so different. People don't care about the rules of one genre and stereotype, they just want to produce a good piece.

The production company takes care of marketing, not the band.

David's Interview for Czech & Slovak Fans!

9. května 2010 v 22:32 | posted by P.2K
As most of you probably know, I tried to deal an interview in Paris with the whole band. Unfortunately, it wasn't possible because of time constraints, but David was so kind and gave us at least an online interview.
Dedicated to all Czech and Slovak fans! Enjoy and feel free to spread to the world :)
Natalie (Evey)

How are you today?
I'm fine thanks. In the few weeks I took a bit time for myself, to care about all the stuff I didn't pay attention to the last years.

Do you like chatting with fans? (kyte etc.)
Well, ja. Chatting with fans is nice, especcially to get a feedback on the stuff you're composing and doing. As an artist you are in your own world, sometimes don't even get information about what's going on in the world - so it's nice to get some feedback about the work, you are doing.

How do you celebrate Christmas as a vegetarian?
Strange question.. well.. as everyone else too - without meat. :)

How long have you been vegetarian?
2 1/2 years now.

And have you decided not to eat meat with Timo?
No, Timo was faster than me. He decided it about 1 year before I did.

How many hours a day do you spend on internet?
One hour

What do you usually do to get out of trouble?
Nothing - I face them :)

What does always make you laugh?

Do you visit some other internet forums?

You've been to Russia twice. What do you remember the most?
The bodyguards :D

Three things you can say "WOW!" about?
How fast can Russian bodyguards empty a hall.
How drunk people can talk fluently in English, even though their native language is German.
How some people can do xx km cross-country skiing and then they're able to shoot 4cm small target from such a distance!

Which band did you listen to last couple of days?
Not many… There wasn't a lot of good stuff released lately…

If the world turned upside down, what would happen first?
The people would be confused because the electricity would turn off.

What do you prefer to do during fall days: sit at home with a blanket and a cup of tea, or walk down the streets?
Both :)

What do you understand under the word "freedom"?
Good question, big answer - but not here, a whole book could be written about that. Words are actually just a small description of the meaning. Just like this. The world is small and I think that all the words that I know are too small to define freedom. It's like define math by numbers.

Do you like opera singing?
Yes and no. It depends when.

What's your opinion about people who take drugs? What feelings or experiences are you connecter to that word "drug" by?
Mhm.. Firstly no good memories or feelings. I don't have any experience with that, I don't know. But it's no good.

What do you like more - active or peaceful girls?
I don't know.. what about peaceful girls who can be really active? :D

What irritates you the most about people?
Speech / language
What do you think about classic rock'n'roll?
I like it. I'm working with a band that makes classic rock - I love it!

Have you heard the song by Leona Lewis - "I See You" (in the Avatar)? Did you like it?
Just once, I didn't like it that much - but the movie was great!!

Could you tell us who is young Maria - Lisa?
Actually, it's my friend, I've know her for a couple of years. I think she sings good and the last days she was on one German TV show :) Unfortunately, on the last show she was sick (she sang a song by My Chemical Romance)

Do you watch Olympics in Vancouver? What do you like the most?
No, I don't.
