Campino has a special connection to the British, since March 2019, as the son of a native Englishwoman, he has had British citizenship in addition to German. The rock musician makes no secret of his sympathy for Queen Elizabeth II and raves about the monarch in an interview.
In an interview with the “Bild” newspaper, “Tote Hosen” frontman Campino raved about Queen Elizabeth II, who was celebrating her platinum anniversary with celebrations at the beginning of June: “The Queen is a stroke of luck for the monarchy,” says the singer. “‘Live to serve’, she followed this motto with an admirable consistency and also with a huge portion of humor,” he adds.
The rock musician wishes the British monarch “that she will not have a serious illness for a long time. For me she is a really great person”. Campino is close to Great Britain, as the son of a native Englishwoman, he has had British citizenship in addition to German since March 2019.
In the interview, Campino also spoke about his 18-year-old son, Lenn Julian, who walked at Milan Fashion Week last year. “He’s just a student who was approached while skateboarding if he wouldn’t like to model a bit to supplement his pocket money,” says the 59-year-old. “He was then relatively quick in Milan, but I think he can classify it well.”
Modeling is not a priority for him and he is well grounded. “In the skater scene in which he is on the move, completely different things are considered worth striving for anyway.” Campino rarely talks to his son about his own wild youth. “His curiosity is extremely limited in this area. He doesn’t stick to my lips to find out how awesome it used to be.” His son definitely has “a healthy level of disinterest in my career.”
The new Tote-Hosen album “Alles aus Liebe” will be released on May 27th. The band, founded in early 1982, is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Campino also celebrates his 60th birthday on June 22nd.
