This is a book about the creation and last 30 years of the Backstreet Boys career. As a member of Team *NSYNC I was disappointed to see there was a call out about *NSYNC being on hiatus 3 paragraphs in. While this book is written by 2 fans, you’d think we’d be grown up and professional enough now to let the 2 bands stand on their own. Apparently not. This was a major turn off. A lot of the info in the book I had already known by being a “fan” for the last 20 whatever years or hearing the guys on various podcasts and interviews.
There were however a lot of photos included and some fan bios which were neat.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Backstreet Boys with the ultimate tribute book—filled with amazing tour photography, band-member profiles, fan memories, and more.
Since breaking into the scene in 1993, the Backstreet Boys have sold over 100 million records around the globe making them one of the world’s best-selling music artists, and giving them the title of best-selling boy band of all time. They are the only boy band to have their first ten albums reach the top 10 on the Billboard 200, and the first group since Led Zeppelin to do so. Celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band in April 2023, members AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Howie Dorough are still going strong and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Featuring a powerhouse foreword by singer-songwriter, DJ, author, activist, and one fifth of the megastar girl group the Spice Girls Melanie Chisholm (aka Melanie C or Sporty Spice), this loving homage to the Boys is written by super fans and BSBFanGirls.com owners Karah-Leigh Hancock and Emilia Filogamo and explores the band’s journey from relative unknowns to superstardom, including:
- Personal backstories and journeys for all five members, including a tribute to Nick’s brother Aaron
- An exploration of every chart-topping single, best-selling album, and sold-out tour
- Fan stories and memories
- Quotes and testimonials from industry professionals
- Amazing tour photography
- Fan memorabilia
- And more!
Whether occupying a place of honor on your coffee table or gifted as the supreme fan treasure, relive the ’90s through the amazing journey of the Backstreet Boys, one that is truly larger than life.
Backstreet’s back, all right!
