Whether you grew up listening to the Backstreet Boys publicly or privately (please, if I had a dollar for every kid wearing a Rage Against the Machine tee in the 90s that also knew the words to Quit Playing Games With My Heart…) the impact of five guys from Florida is undeniable. In the fickle industry of music and the even more fickle genre of pop, the Backstreet Boys have done what few bands have been able to do – reach the highest level of super-stardom and maintain a career afterwards.
Check out our interview with Nick Carter after the jump!
Longevity in any field of entertainment is a mostly unattainable feat and at the age of 31, BSB member Nick Carter can already boast an impressive 18 year career. As part of the nine member super group NKOTBSB comprised of all the original members of New Kids on the Block and four of the members of Backstreet Boys (Kevin Richardson declined to participate on the tour), Carter has had a busy 2011 on a sold out stadium tour across North American. On the heels of the tour’s success, Carter has dropped his second solo album, I’m Taking Off, which was released in Canada yesterday.
We sat down with Nick to talk about his fans, his Canadian connection and why he’s ready for his first solo album in nine years.Tweet
