AJ had, without a doubt, the most distinctive voice and personality of the Backstreet Boys but even BSB fans apparently weren’t all that interested in his solo venture. McLean had performed for years as rock singer “Johnny Noname”  when he wasn’t performing with the rest of the Backstreet Boys, but he took to creating a full fledged solo album in 2008 (Have it All) as himself. The album was only released in Japan.

    You have to have talent, the machine behind you and the [mist].
    Sometimes you have to go to another country and start from there.

      Not true. Britney has no talent and no personality and hardly any looks. She does have a damn good team/handlers who carefully coordinate, orchestrate, and auto-tune the hell out of everything she does.

    Just goes to show some low self-esteem black folks that not because you’re white or light that you will automatically make it in the music industry. These are some examples!!

    WHAT’S WITH ALL THESE WHITE BOYS.

  • 5th Beatle

    Makes no sense to put one of The Beatles on this list because somebody had to be the least successful solo out of the four of them.

    Ringo has had 16 solo studio albums, 10 live albums, and the first hit post-Beatles song. I think that would be a damn impressive career on its own.

      Completely agree. It’s possible that the author of this article is too young or just not knowledgeable with Ringo’s work. Putting him in this list is ridiculous.

    Saying Nsync was the BEST BOYBAND is a matter of opinion.
