Early Career

When Tom Kaulitz was 7 years old, he started writing music and started learning to play guitar. His mother’s then-boyfriend Gordon Trumper noticed his passion for music and his brother Bill Kaulitz’s inclination to sing.

So Gordon helped the boys start their own bands and they began performing in Magdeburg at the age of 10. Eventually, when the Kaulitz twins were 12, they met Georg Listing and Gustav Schafer and formed a named Devilish, which was later renamed Tokio Hotel.

However, the band did not gain success except for an appearance in a small-time German news program between late 20002 and early 2003. Tom Kaulitz’s twin brother then auditioned for Star Search, a reality TV show, which gained their initial recognition.
