When they say Quit Playing Games With My Heart, you better listen-'cause they're the Backstreet Boys, one of the hottest boy-bands ever to take the stage. These five ultra-fine guys have won the hearts of millions. So step back into their awesome world and see what made them tick at this exciting, early stage of their careers. An insider's look back at the band: Howie Dorough was the peacemaker of the group. But watch out-this flirtatious hunk was also known as the "Latin lover." Kevin Richardson, as the group's gorgeous oldest member, sometimes had to be the responsible one. Nick Carter, the band's youngest member, wasn't called "Chaos" for nothing-this blond-haired, blue-eyed cutie was a major prankster! Brian Littrell, a big-time hottie, was the comedian of the bunch-Jim Carrey was his idol, and he loved to play practical jokes. AJ McLean, deeply romantic-he wrote the band's love ballads, and this sexy songster was rarely seen without his trademark sunglasses. Fall in love all over again with the Backstreet Boys as they celebrate more than twenty years of top-charting success.
