*NSYNC

(Redirected from NSYNC)

*NSYNC is a five-part pop music vocal group, specifically a boy band, formed in Orlando, Florida, USA. The group members are James Lance Bass, Joshua Scott Chasez (JC), Joseph Anthony Fatone Junior (Joey), Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick (Chris), and Justin Randall Timberlake.


History

The group formed in 1995 under the funding of Lou Pearlman, who hired Johnny Wright (former manager of New Kids On The Block ) to be their tour manager. Lance Bass, who coincidentally sang bass, was not originally part of the group. The bass part was sung by Jason Watkins, who left the group early on because he did not like the type of music *NSYNC was performing.

The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym.

Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity.

Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. After moving from BMG to Jive Records, home of rival boy band Backstreet Boys, No Strings Attached, released in March 2000, sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of release—the highest record sales in music history (1.1 million of which was attributed to the first day of release).

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. Their albums have been boosted by a number of successful single releases, including "Tearin' Up My Heart" from *NSYNC, "Music Of My Heart" recorded with Gloria Estefan for the movie Music of the Heart, "Bye Bye Bye", "It's Gonna Be Me" and "This I Promise You" from No Strings Attached. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well.

The group went on hiatus in 2002, as two of its members released solo albums -- Justin Timberlake released Justified on November 4, 2002 and JC Chasez released his solo album, Schizophrenic, on February 24, 2004.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent).

Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. Rumors have circulated that Justin Timberlake quit the group, thus, disbanding NSYNC.

Rumors have circulated that Justin Timberlake quit the group, thus, disbanding NSYNC. After Dimebag's death, a Pantera reunion has become impossible but comments made in public by Phil Anselmo suggest that he had planned on reuniting the band. Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. An audience member, a club employee, and a member of the bands' security entourage were killed before Gale was shot dead by police officer James Niggemeyer (for more on the shooting, see Dimebag Darrell). Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent). In 2004 Gale shot and killed Dimebag Darrell at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio as they took the stage. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. It is believed that negative comments made by Anselmo in the press about Dimebag inspired Nathan Gale to take his Beretta pistol to a Damageplan performance.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. The break-up of the band was not amicable and invariably a war between Superjoint and Damageplan was waged via the heavy metal and musical press. The group went on hiatus in 2002, as two of its members released solo albums -- Justin Timberlake released Justified on November 4, 2002 and JC Chasez released his solo album, Schizophrenic, on February 24, 2004. After this, Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell formed a band of their own called New Found Power which was later renamed Damageplan. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well. It was thought he would return to Pantera, but didn't and instead formed Superjoint Ritual, who have released two albums. Their albums have been boosted by a number of successful single releases, including "Tearin' Up My Heart" from *NSYNC, "Music Of My Heart" recorded with Gloria Estefan for the movie Music of the Heart, "Bye Bye Bye", "It's Gonna Be Me" and "This I Promise You" from No Strings Attached. Pantera irretrievably dissolved after Anselmo left the band to pursue other work with such bands as Down.

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. In this release, Pantera took an even more extreme direction. After moving from BMG to Jive Records, home of rival boy band Backstreet Boys, No Strings Attached, released in March 2000, sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of release—the highest record sales in music history (1.1 million of which was attributed to the first day of release). Pantera's breakthrough album was 1992's Vulgar Display of Power, which saw the replacement of falsetto vocals with a more shouted delivery and a heavier guitar sound. The extent to which this album grew in popularity can be assessed by the instant success of the 1994 follow-up, Far Beyond Driven which debuted at number one in both American and Australian album charts, the first metal album ever to achieve this, despite the failing fortunes of metal in America at that time. Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. At this point, Pantera's music was still heavily influenced by "classic heavy metal" — with Rob Halford-style vocals and the extravagant riffs and solos of guitarist Dimebag Darrell, though the album also showcased a more extreme style. No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity. The first really successful record Pantera recorded was 1990's Cowboys From Hell.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". Pantera then located Phil Anselmo and produced "Power Metal", a tape that had Phil singing some songs that were originally sung by Glaze, as well as a few originals. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business. When Terry balked at the contract he was kicked out of the band. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. Terry Glaze was included in talks to sign with a label that was fronted by Gene Simmons of KISS. Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. Pantera released three forgotten albums (Metal Magic, Projects In The Jungle and I Am The Night) before ditching singer Terry Glaze in favor of Phil Anselmo with 1987's Power Metal.

After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym. They were modern (or so-called "groove") metal. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. Formed in 1983, Pantera were one of the most influential Heavy Metal bands of the 1990s. The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. Pantera was a popular heavy metal band from Dallas,Texas, USA. The bass part was sung by Jason Watkins, who left the group early on because he did not like the type of music *NSYNC was performing. Pantera: 3 - Vulgar Videos from Hell (1997) (DVD re-release).
