So I had this thought today about boy bands because New Kids on the Block came blasting on my radio. Talk about whiplash to my childhood. I remember mad-crushing on Joey. Anyway, it got me thinking about how often I heard a lot of members of boy bands say they want to be successful as a solo artist like the Beatles soon were. So I was wondering, do you think boy bands are just a giant try-out segment for a lot of up and coming artists or are they just a quick way to sell records to millions of boy-crazy girls like I once was. Your thoughts? And who do you like now? Also, is Bruno Mars the name of the band or the name of the artist? I have never been sure about that one. Either way I like Bruno Mars and I think he's got a long career ahead of him if he keeps producing music.
