5) Mother and Son
"Both Till and Richard confirmed about the song ("Mutter") relating to their tough relationships with their own mothers". WHAT THE FU....DGE?!!!!! Okay folks, some of you, that have already swept through my translation of "Mein Sohn, der Frontmann von Rammstein".... I think it already speaks for itself, doesn't it?
Werner himself describes Till running up to his Mom and throwing her up in the air, big, joyfull grin plastered on his face. He than places her down on the ground with extreme care to make sure she won't fall.
He mentiones about "beautifuly carved flower pot".. cherry wood beauty made by Till as a Christmas present for his Mom.
And Till! The same interview I've already talked about. Here's the fragment: (everything translated by me)
...(...)..neither the title, nor the text have got anything to do with my own mother, or my colleague's mothers.
Q:You reportedly consulted the text of the song with your own Mother. Do you always use to test your new musical material on your parent?
A:I just wanted to avoid all unnecessary misunderstandings and vague hints. So that my mother wouldn't hold any grudge against me afterwards, you know, looking askance, wagging her finger at me, and asking: "What kind of pamphlet is this?!" Especially when given the fact, that "Mutter" song tells a rather sad story which has got no reference to our relationship in real life. My mom listened to it eagerly and she enjoyed it. So all things are settled between us.
Q: You want me to say that your Mom herself is a Rammstein fan?
A: She wasn't one right from the start, that's for sure. My Mom works in a radio, in a regional broadcasting station in north-west Germany. She's the chef of the cultural redaction and you could likely see it coming, that one day, all her co-workers and acquaintances would nag her with all sorts of questions aka:"What the heck is going on?" They would say: "I saw your son in the TV, I read an article with your sweetheart" and so on. That would eventually make her feel proud. It made her totally change her attitude towards my musical activity, she started to look differently at my role in Rammstein, the way I express myself through the music".
There! I think it explains everything away. These quotes come from TILL himself, not from some Wikipedia articles.
I really felt the need to clear it up. And I would appreciate if people stopped spreading false myths and gossips about celebrities. Till doesn't deserve all this sh*t.
That's how I would like to repay him.. for all he has done for me, my sweet Angel. Heck yeah, this is going to be my now motto from now on: "Destroy the Myths! Let the truth unleash!"
