New PDF release: 100 Prozent Anders: Mein Leben - und die Wahrheit über

By Thomas Anders,Tanja May

Humorvoll, charmant und gelegentlich sarkastisch

Er ist einer der beiden erfolgreichsten Popmusiker Deutschlands. Mit glossy conversing verkaufte Thomas Anders mehr als one hundred twenty Millionen CDs. Im Sommer 2003 trennte sich das Duo - doch während seither nur andere über Thomas Anders schrieben und redeten, schwieg der Sänger – und machte Musik: Allein im letzten Jahr erntete er Gold und Platin. Mehr als eine halbe Million fanatics kauften allein in Russland das neue Thomas-Anders-Album Strong.

Nun hat Thomas Anders seine Erinnerungen (mit Unterstützung von Tanja might) aufgeschrieben:
»100 PROZENT ANDERS Mein Leben - und die Wahrheit über smooth speaking, Nora und Dieter Bohlen«, (Edition KOCH, 320 Seiten, zahlreiche teils deepest und bisher unveröffentlichte Fotos, erscheint am 21. September). Offen und ohne falsche Eitelkeit erzählt Anders in seiner Autobiografie über seine Kindheit (»Ich conflict wohl ein extrem liebes und pflegeleichtes sort, ich struggle nie die Wildsau, die sich mit anderen Jungs im Dreck wälzte...ich conflict viel mehr auf meinen way of life bedacht...gepflegtes Aussehen, schicke Kleidung und stilvolles Benehmen waren mir schon als type unheimlich wichtig«) über erste Konflikte mit der Presse (»Als die Bravo im Handel warfare, habe ich sofort überschlagen, wie viel Geld ich auf meinem Konto habe. Ich wollte die gesamte Bravo-Auflage aufkaufen, so sehr habe ich mich für den Artikel geschämt. Die Überschrift lautete: ›Ich habe noch nie ein lady geküsst!‹ – Hat jemand eine Ahnung, wie demütigend das mit sixteen ist?«) und wie es dann doch noch zu frühen Berührungen mit dem anderen Geschlecht kam (»Meine Eltern hatten einen Partykeller. Dort traf sich meine Clique oft an den Wochenenden. Ende der 70-er Jahre battle bei uns die heiße section der Flaschendreh-Partys. Das warfare herrlich. guy konnte so viel knutschen, wie guy wollte, ohne ernste Absichten zu haben.«).

Den größten Raum in seinem Buch nimmt die Erinnerung an die Zeit mit glossy conversing ein: »Dieter Bohlen tritt in mein Leben – und der Wahnsinn hat einen Namen«. Ohne aber je den Anschein zu erwecken, auf billige Weise Revanche nehmen zu wollen, schildert Anders auf 320 Seiten amüsant und offen, wie sleek conversing das wurde, was once es battle und wer hinter dem Menschen Dieter Bohlen steckt: »Er ist einfach ein totaler Macho. In seinen Augen, so mein Eindruck, müssen Frauen schön und schlank sein, ansonsten haben sie die Klappe zu halten. Er ist ein „Wiederholungstäter“, jedes Mal struggle es das gleiche Schema: erst empfiehlt er den Mädchen, den Umgang mit ihren Eltern und Freunden einzuschränken, dann rät er ihnen, das alte convenient abzugeben. Sie erhalten dann ein neues, das er kontrolliert und dann sind die Brüste dran …«

Als Insider vermittelt Thomas Anders dem Leser einen ehrlichen Blick hinter die Kulissen des bunten, glitzernden Musikbusiness und der methods und Fußangeln, die das Showgeschäft beherrschen. Er erinnert sich an die zahlreichen Anekdoten, die er im Laufe seiner Karriere sammelte und erzählt zum ersten Mal auch schonungslos über Hintergründe und Skandale, die den Erfolgsweg begleiteten.

Natürlich spielt in dem Buch auch seine Ex-Frau Nora eine wichtige Rolle: »Die wohl nachhaltigste Duftmarke, die Nora gesetzt hat, battle die goldene Kette mit Nora-Anhänger, die ich zu smooth conversing Zeiten trug. Heute noch, additionally mehr als 25 Jahre später, werde ich immer wieder darauf angesprochen. Dabei battle das von uns nur als Gag gedacht, um Dieter zu ärgern. Zu der Kette inspiriert hatte uns ursprünglich Udo Lindenberg, der damals mit seinem überdimensionalen Gürtel Furore machte. Der Gürtel battle aus schwarzem Leder, auf der Schnalle stand in großen, silbernen Buchstaben „PANIK“. Nora und ich überlegten uns, einen NORA-Gürtel zu entwerfen. Doch als wir bei Freunden in Südfrankreich zu Besuch waren und gemeinsam am Pool lagen, meinte mein Kumpel: ›Gürtel ist doof. Du musst Dir eine Kette machen lassen, auf der Nora steht.‹ Die Idee fanden wir witzig.« Der leisure ist neue deutsche Popgeschichte.
