Sie sind neben Die Ärzte und Seeed eine der größten Bands, die Berlin in den vergangenen drei Jahrzehnten hervorgebracht hat. Im kommenden Jahr feiern die Beatsteaks ihr 20-jähriges Jubiläum. Dabei stand die Zukunft der Band nach dem schweren Sturz von Drummer Thomas Götz, bei dem sich dieser im August 2012 einen Schädelbruch zuzog, ernsthaft auf der Kippe. Ein Gespräch auf der Spree mit Sänger Arnim Teutoburg-Weiß und Gitarrist Peter Baumann über Vergänglichkeit, Rückblicke und die nächsten 20 Jahre.
