Author’s Note: I have warm, fuzzy feelings when I think about each Backstreet Boy. This will be part of an ongoing series which covers first impressions of the boys.

If you’ve read my other posts, you’ll know that I’ve written my first impressions on Howie, Nick, AJ and Brian. I’ve re-written this blog post about 100 times because I felt like I wasn’t doing this person justice. It’s going to be a long one, so if you want, now is a good time to go grab a snack. Got your snack? Ok, here we go!

Our loveable goofball. Yes, you already know which boy the next instalment is about. If there was any Backstreet Boy that could have dethroned Kevin, back in the day; it would have been Brian. I saw Brian as the boy next door. The guy that my mom would have liked to have seen me with when I got older. He was sweet, well mannered and a practical joker. I was drawn to it immediately.

Good old Alex. Yeah, I really cannot refer to him as AJ but for the purpose of this article I’ll try. I know for a fact that he’ll answer to both. He’s always been so different than the other boys. I’ve always loved the mysterious, bad boy, rocker type. From the piercings to the constant hair changes, AJ has had quite the evolution.

1996. The year I became a fan. I can tell you that this wasn’t the year that I fell head over heels for Nick Carter. Nick and I are 8 years, 8 months and 2 days apart. He’s the youngest member of the Backstreet Boys and he was my least favorite member for the longest time. Sure, I loved him like I loved the others but I just didn’t get what the big deal was. Why did every girl fawn over this kid? Even if I was still a kid myself, I personally liked tall, dark and old as dirt…sorry Kev.

The summer just flew by. I didn’t even get to enjoy it. No swimming, no picnics at the park and certainly no drinking while sitting by the fire lol. I was still on a strong regimen of antibiotics.

To some people, he’s quiet and shy; and to some, he’s the life of the party. Unfortunately, my initial impression was that Howie blended in. He just existed to complete the band.

When I left Las Vegas it was so hard to say good-bye to my friend that I shared my hotel room with. We had very little time to spend together as I had M&G for both Friday and Saturday shows. YES… I found a way to fly out a day earlier than planned and seen the last 2 show of the Larger Than Life residency. In fact, I was the final meet & greet on Saturday, April 27th.

As I write this, the song “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” plays in my head.

Prior to flying to Las Vegas alone on April 26, 2019, I made a few friends online. For the last weekend of the Larger Than Life residency, I was able to purchase a VIP table. It wasn’t front and center but it was still at the stage. I posted on the Official Backstreet Boys Fan Club Facebook page and sold my extra seats.

After my 1st M&G with the Backstreet Boys, the rest of my Las Vegas trip is a blur. I will just say that I came to Vegas with tickets to see the Wednesday night performance and when we left, I had seen all three shows that week and went to my first after party. I won’t get into why or how I convinced my sister Adina to let me spend that much money, but I will say it was worth every dime.

When I camped outside overnight for tickets to Into The Millennium tour on a very hot August night 1999, I never thought I would actually meet the Backstreet Boys. I was overjoyed with 4th-row seats for the 3rd sold-out show at the Palace of Auburn Hills, MI. I remember buying a new Kodak camera just for the show. I still have some pictures, but not too many.
