Happy 26th Birthday Gustav Schäfer

Hello Buzzneters,

today is the birthday of one of the Kings Of Suburbia… yeah, the drummer Gustav Schäfer turns 26 today.

The guys wished him a “Happy Birthday” on their blog, Facebook and Twitter and also on Instagram.

Bill shared this photo of a little Gustav already fell in love with drums:

While Georg shared a newer one:

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorit drummer!!! @gustavschafer

Born in Magdeburg (Germany), Gustav Klaus Wolfgang Schäfer (this his full name); he has sister named Franziska of eight years older than him.

He started to link to drums since he was a baby and his myth is Phil Collins.

After school he went at Fachhochschule a pre-college institute where you can learn music and here he met Georg Listing (the future bassist of Tokio Hotel) and became friends.

Even though he seems timid and discreet when he’s on stage he releases a lot of energy and passion, giving a magic touch to each concert.

Here there are few of his best quotes and moments on stage + an amazing interview he gave back in 2010:

I’m just a bit more reserved than the others and I avoid the limelight as much as possible

I absolutely couldn’t care less what other people think about me. And I advise everyone else to do the same

About the band: “We’ve known each other a long time, so we have our routines and we respect each other’s privacy

If you want check my old fanmade videos I made for his birthday in the past two years:

On Twitter we’re trying to trend this hashtag #HappyBirthdayGustavSchäfer so if you want you can tweet something cute for Gustav and sharing your favorite photos/quotes of him 😉


We wish you all the best, you rock!!!
