Okay, I'm not going to beat around the bush: The friggin' Backstreet Boys are coming here on August 18th to dance it up at the Metro Centre. Well, four of them, anyway - Kevin Richardson, the middle-aged looking one, left the band in 2006.
- yep, still old.
However, Greasy, Druggy, Whatshisface and BlondieJaw are all still in full effect.
- still crazy
Seriously, I'm amazed these guys are still alive. Remember when Brian (Blondie) had open heart surgery? And swine flu? Good God. These boys have been through a lot. You can read about how the "rotund impressario" Lou Perlman ruined their lives in this Vanity Fair article. Harrowing.
