Nick Carter loving the chance to be ‘Nick & Knight’
Nick Carter was only twelve years old when he started his music career as the youngest member of the Backstreet Boys. In the years that followed, the world witnessed the stark contrast between the professional persona of the baby-faced boy band member with the complex personal life that had him dating Paris Hilton, taking drugs and breaking ties with his own family.
It’s that contrast that just might be why people continue to find the 34-year-old so darn intriguing.
Today, Carter continues to make a living playing and performing music that still resonates with millions of hard-core fans. Currently joining forces with New Kids on the Block’s Jordan Knight as part of the duo Nick & Knight, Carter recently spoke with the Chicago Sun Times about the life he has led and all that he says still lies ahead.
Question: You are coming to Chicago for two nights [at House of Blues[. Chicago has always been an amazingly supportive market for your music, would you say?
Nick Carter: Chicago has always been one of our favorite places to come. The fans there love what we do and they don’t have any preconceived feelings about what type of music we do. They enjoy our performances and continue to love what we have given to them for over 23 years.
