Oh, Nick Lachey, you are so dreamy. FYI, he was born in 1973, so in 2002 when the 98 Degrees book was written, he was 29 years old. In fact, by 2002, 98 Degrees took a hiatus to work on other things. The Backstreet boys followed a similar path, and went on hiatus around the same time. These books must cover the salad days of boy bandom because by the time they were published, both groups were just about done for.
Fast forward ten years. Both 98 Degrees and Backstreet Boys are together again, touring and recording a new album. It’s like they’re the same people! Maybe new books will be released to ease your troubled minds about weeding these.
My prediction is that current boy bands like One Direction and The Wanted will have a similar fate. We’ll be weeding their biographies in two or three years (not ten!) and looking for new ones when they re-group in 2027.
