BACKSTREET BOYS TELL ONE DIRECTION TO ‘HAVE FUN, IT’S A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT’


One Direction have pretty much taken over the world at the moment.
But back in the 1990′s the boyband crown was well and truly held by the Backstreet Boys, who were and probably are the biggest boy band ever after selling over 130  million records worldwide and had their first 7 albums top the charts in the US.
The band consisting of Brian, AJ, Nick, Howie and Kevin got together in 1993 released massive worldwide hits such as ‘I Want It That Way’ and ‘Everybody (Backstreets Back)’
After 20 years in the business, BSB have been honoured with a star on the Hollywood walk of fame, before they head out on their 12th tour.
The boy band veterans offered advice to One Direction in an interview with UK breakfast show Daybreak.
AJ said: “Enjoy it, that’s the most important thing is to have fun, stay on your own path and surround yourself with good important people, get a good lawyer just in case… you never know!”
While Brian added: “I would say pace yourself, it’s a marathon, it’s not a sprint.”
I’d take that advice boys! BSB definitely know what they’re on about, they’ve been around long enough!
