Der Tastenficker: An was ich mich so erinnern kann (book)
Der Tastenficker: An was ich mich so erinnern kann is the official autobiography of Flake. The book was released on 16.03.2015.
The book will come in two different versions: first and second pressing. The first pressing will be signed by Flake and is limited to (guessed) 10,000 copies. When all these are sold out, the book won't include the autograph and no numbering.
On 25.03.2016 an audio book by Flake was released.
The book is not separated into chapters. It is an ongoing story. Flake doesn't really follow a line while writing, he writes whatever comes to his mind. The book itself has 396 pages. It includes not only stories, but also hundreds of photographs. Also the book contains no names of bands or people. But from the stories you can guess if it is about Feeling B or Rammstein.
The book has been translated into Finnish (as "Kosketinrunkkari – Niin kuin sen satun muistamaan"), released in 2016 April and into Estonian (as "Klahvkamees - Mida ma mäletan"), released in 2017.
- The book is dedicated to Elise. Flake means the piano song by Ludwig van Beethoven, which he hates to play.
The audio book for "Der Tastenficker" was released on 22 March 2016 as a digipak.
