The charismatic front man is a legend in its own right. From telephone salesman in a record company to their platinum-selling top act within one and a half years - that is indeed the dream career of anyone in the music business. Within the band he is the one to set the pace - while Rick and Axel puzzle endlessly over their synths-LED-displays, its H.P. who already ponders about new concepts and reminds his colleagues of the deadlines. But obviously its his legendary shout-style that makes him the cult-figure of the scene. Its not the meaning of the words I'm interested in, he stresses, the phonetics of the lyrics have to support the rhythm. A technique, that the 32-year-old has practiced to perfection: on stage, its his usually energetic cheers that drives the crowd into a frenzy.
