*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. Health problems such as a stroke and cancer of the tongue have drastically limited his musical activity in the 2000s, but he still occasionally performs in his Bakersfield club "The Crystal Palace" and, on rare occasions, elsewhere in California. Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. Owens was a rebel at heart doing his music his way, shunning the conventions of Nashville. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent). Unlike many fellow artists, Owens avoided drugs and drink, living as a quiet family man. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. By this time, his recording career was in a slump, as audiences were becoming enamored of pop-influenced music coming out of Nashville.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. He left the show in 1986. 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. This exposure brought Owens to the attention of a wider audience, but viewers tended to see him as a comedian, rather than a musical talent. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well. He landed a spot as a co-host of the comedy show Hee Haw for seventeen years, sharing the spotlight with Roy Clark. 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. Excerpts from the show, "The Buck Owens Ranch Show" were used as country music videos a decade later.

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. He started a production company called "Buck Owens Productions," which developed a syndicated TV show. 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). He scored 15 #1 hits between 1963 and 1972. Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. Four years later, Owens began to enter the top of the charts with regularity. No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity. Owens and Rich had some success with a few songs, including a Top 10 with "Under Your Spell Again." They decided to return to Bakersfield, and there, Owens's backup group "The Buckaroos" was put together in 1959.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". There, he learned radio business from the ground up, and where he met and teamed up with Don Rich, who became his partner and close friend until Rich's death in 1974. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business. He moved to Puyallup, Washington to work at a radio station. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. He signed on with Capitol Records in 1957, but didn't do as well as he'd hoped. Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. He developed a reputation as one of the best pickers around.

After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym. In the late 1940s, he began running produce between Arizona and the San Joaquin Valley of California, and was impressed by Bakersfield, finally settling there to work the gritty honky tonks populated by Bakersfield's oil workers. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. He worked a number of odd jobs, and eventually found work playing music in bars for $5 a night. The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. At age 13, Owens dropped out of high school to earn a living. 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. Owens worked the fields while teaching himself to play several instruments with the aid of his mother, father, and uncles.

Lance Bass, who coincidentally sang bass, was not originally part of the group. They packed 10 family members in a Ford sedan, and left Texas for California. Their trailer hitch broke in Mesa, Arizona, and there they stayed. 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.
