2010

Nick posted on twitter earlier that he does not have a private facebook. So if you are following someone on facebook saying they are Nick it’s not him. It’s a poser.

Q&A: Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys Jun15
2010

From where Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter is standing, things are looking pretty good. Concerts on the act’s tour — as well as copies of its greatest-hits collection, “Playlist: The Very Best of Backstreet Boys” — are selling briskly. Now if he could only persuade radio to play songs from Backstreet Boys’ latest album, “This Is Us,” everything would be perfect.

“It’s sad that people aren’t getting the chance to hear it much,” Carter said. “But that’s cool. All we have to do is go on tour and promote it that way.”

Backstreet Boys, who recently joined Korn in boycotting BP oil, are on tour through July in support of the album. During a tour stop in Boston, Carter took the time to talk to SoundSpike about the performances, the upcoming Backstreet Boys cruise and his tour bus.

SoundSpike: How’s the tour going so far?

Nick Carter: The tour is going fantastic. We’re having a lot of fun. From what we’re seeing from the stage, it’s kind of sold out. [Laughs] We’re kind of excited. Everybody’s excited. I’m on a bus right now — and isn’t Kid Rock from Detroit? I have Kid Rock’s bus. There’s a big D everywhere on my bus for Detroit. [Laughs]

Backstreet Boys Join BP Boycott Jun10
2010

Backstreet’s back alright, but they’re not using BP.

The Backstreet Boys said in a statement today that they’re joining Korn in the boycott against purchasing BP oil. The boy band (can we still call them that?) is currently on tour to promote their “This Is Us” album, and their sojourn across the States will be BP-free.

“I’m devastated by what I’ve seen first hand and on the news,” Nick Carter said in a statement. “I’ve always been a marine activist and seeing pictures of oil-covered animals breaks my heart.”

Said fellow Backstreet member Brian Littrell: “We just played Biloxi last week and I have to tell you people are really worried down there. This boycott is about making a statement, letting people know how we feel and to stand for something.”

AJ Talks About Leaving Jive Jun10
2010

In a recent interview with pressofatlanticcity.com AJ talked a bit about leaving Jive and their plans.

Q: What’s next for the group, now that you’ve left your longtime label, Jive?

A: There’s the possibility of moving to a new label or doing a straight distribution deal. The upside is we have the freedom to do whatever we want, to be much more creative, as artists and as performers. We now have the freedom to do whatever we want. If we go with another label, we may have another outlook on the next 17 years for our career.

A lot of us have been talking about playing instruments again, maybe going the Beatles route. We have always emulated groups such as the Stones, the Beatles and the Eagles.

Who knows what could be the future of the Backstreet Boys? The concepts and ideas are infinitely limitless.
