*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. It's assumed the next incarnation of the band will most likely contain an arrangement of the above members. Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. The liner notes of aMOTION list the members of the band as follows: Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel, Josh Freese, Danny Lohner, Paz Lenchantin, Troy van Leeuwen, Jeordie White, James Iha and Tim Alexander. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent). As there will be no activity from A Perfect Circle for a number of years (due to Maynard James Keenan's commitment to his other band Tool) it is assumed the band will be reformed for the next album depending on which musicians are available. Billy Howerdel has mentioned in November 2004 that the band will definitely contain Keenan and himself, and most likely Josh Freese. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. Note: While the above is the latest line-up to appear live, as of the release of eMOTIVe and aMOTION, it is unclear as to who exactly is in the band.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. A third album, eMOTIVe was released on November 2, 2004, which contains anti-war cover songs of artists such as John Lennon, and Joni Mitchell. 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. The band released their second album, Thirteenth Step, in September 16, 2003. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well. These positions were taken over by ex-Marilyn Manson bassist Jeordie White (formerly known as Twiggy Ramirez) and ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha. 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. Between Lenchantin leaving the band for Billy Corgan's new band Zwan and van Leeuwen becoming the new tour guitarist of Queens of the Stone Age, the band was in need for a new bassist and guitarist for their live performances.

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. While the band's first single, "Judith", brought some comparisons to Tool, the album is quite different. 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). At this time Tool was tied up in negotiations with their record label, allowing Keenan much time to complete the work. Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. Joined by The Vandals drummer Josh Freese, ex- Failure guitarist Troy van Leeuwen, and bassist/violinist Paz Lenchantin (later of Zwan), the band rehearsed the music that Howerdel had begun and finished their debut album Mer de Noms (French "Sea of Names"). No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity. During the band's first tour, this was a long purple wig, but now seems to be various colours and styles from one live performance to another.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". To separate his appearance from Tool, Keenan wears a long wig on his otherwise bald scalp at all A Perfect Circle live appearances, photo shoots and music videos. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business. A Perfect Circle is a progressive rock band, formed by guitarist Billy Howerdel. Howerdel had worked as a guitar tech for bands such as Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, Fishbone, Guns N' Roses and Tool. During the recording of Tool's Ænima album, he played demos of his music to Tool's singer, Maynard James Keenan, who, although Howerdel originally wanted a female singer, offered himself as vocalist should Howerdel form a band. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group.
