I first started liking the Backstreet Boys during the [Red Album] era. At that time [Brian] was my favourite Backstreet Boy because [I liked his voice and thought he was cute]. My favourite song used to be [Get Down] but now I love [Bigger]. Since becoming a fan, I have seen the guys on tour [12] times. My favourite tour was [Unbreakable] because [everything was much less scripted than it is now, there was a lot more fan interaction and there was a BAND, not canned music]. The one song I wish they would perform in concert is [anything from Unbreakable and This is Us] and take out [All I Have to Gi...Zzzz].

Nowadays, my favourite Backstreet Boy is [Nick] because [it's been easiest to get to know him better because he's very public and open, his face is a nice plus]. I have to admit, at first I didn't think much of [AJ] but now he's really grown on me. I still don't give [Kevin] much thought because I just don't have all that much interest in him or anything in common with him. If [Nick] were to leave the band, there is no way it could continue on as a foursome, but If I had to pick one of them to leave, I would choose [Kevin] because [I find him to be completely irrelevant to the dynamic of the group].

The one thing I love most about these boys is [the music and how accessible they make themselves to fans]. But if I could ask them to change one thing it would be [listening to our suggestions/recommendations more and actually taking them to heart, since they're asking us to fork over our hard earned money all the time].

At the end of the day, we're all fans but the one thing that bugs me most about this fandom in general is [the petty bickering]. I think [Howie] is the most fan friendly where [Brian] needs the most work. Regardless, I love these guys and will remain a fan forever unless [they run me over with a tour bus].

Did you guys see this video of a girl getting Kevin to say that part at soundcheck a couple weeks ago?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiruViIFri4

Fun fact: the girl who got Kevin to do that is named Connie. She's actually one of my cruise roommates too.

I thought this would be fun. Fill in the blanks to complete your Backstreet Story. I at first wanted to make this a challenge and have you fill out how other people might answer, but I wasn't sure who would do it and who wouldn't. LOL

Put your answers inside  the [ ] and make sure you bold them to make it easier to read.

I first started liking the Backstreet Boys during the [Self titled album] era. At that time [nome of them ] was my favorite Backstreet Boy because [I didn't have a favorite until 1998/1999]. My favorite song used to be [Quit Playing Games] but now I love [As Long As You Love Me]. Since becoming a fan, I have seen the guys on tour [six] times. My favorite tour was [This is Us] because [it was the closest I've ever been to the stage]. The one song I wish they would perform in concert is [Siberia] and take out [More Than That].

Nowadays, my favorite Backstreet Boy is [Brian and Nick] because [I am struggling because I cannot choose between them]. I have to admit, at first I didn't think much of [Kevin] but now he's really grown on me. I still don't give [Howie] much thought because I just don't have all that much interest in him or anything in common with him. If [Nick] were to leave the band, there is no way it could continue on as a foursome, but If I had to pick one of them to leave, I would choose [none of them ] because [I don't feel any of them should leave].

The one thing I love most about these boys is [the love they have for the fans]. But if I could ask them to change one thing it would be [not focus on the stuff people can't afford as much because not all fans can and it makes them feel left out].

At the end of the day, we're all fans but the one thing that bugs me most about this fandom in general is [all the petty fighting]. I think [Kevin] is the most fan friendly where [Howie] needs the most work. Regardless I love these guys and will keep being a fan forever unless [nothing would stop me from being a fan].

Oh cool!  I don't know her, but I just saw her pop up on my Twitter timeline cause Cinzia RTed this tweet of hers: https://twitter.com/cdubyah76/status/488102540752330754

Do you know anything about that?  Did that really happen at soundcheck, that Nick said Jesus was an alien?  Is there video?  Cause I need to see that if there is LOL.

I'm sorry if I'm getting this thread off topic, but in my search for soundcheck videos, I discovered that they sang my beloved One Phone Call AND Make Believe at the Darien Lake soundcheck.  I wish there were full videos, but I could only find these.

One Phone Call:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PNAh1UpUFc (almost the whole song)

Make Believe:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtnSZm_fQ7g (most of it)


The fans singing along annoyed me in OPC, but Make Believe is BEAUTIFUL!  Those harmonies... wow!!  I love that song on the album, but not every song is as good live... that one is!!  They should have put that in the show.

I will skip the one phone call but I'll watch the Make Believe one! I always thought that song would make a god a cappella one for them. I hear a great version of it in my head anyway. lol

Back to the surveys! Looks like everyone also agrees that if Nick were to leave the group it would implode. LOL
