More free time Both Anders and Bohlen have said Modern Talking's split will free them up to do other things.

But the Modern Talking phenomenon -- which includes eleven albums, number one hits in 20 countries and Bohlen's memoirs, "Nothing but the Truth" (Nichts als die Wahrheit) which topped the book charts when they were published last year -- was not to last for ever.
Now, after years of rumors of a possible break-up, the band has decided to write the last chapter in the Modern Talking saga.
The band has cancelled all other concerts due this summer in cities across Germany since their announced break-up at the beginning of June. It is not the first time the pair -- record producer and singer Dieter Bohlen, (49) and musician Thomas Anders, (40) -- have called it a day.

Thomas Anders, for whom the sudden announcement also came as a surprise, confirmed the news but admitted that the timing – right at the start of their summer tour -- may have not been right.
So he's not just vocal coach, but life coach as well, eh? "The Bohlen Way" focuses more on bulldozing your way through life than anything else.
