I guess, someone out there thinks we care. In reality...the Backstreet Boys can't be the Backstreet Boys forever. The eventually grow into MEN. End of story.

hello everybody...i'm anitalian fan of the here to propose an idea we had:we wrote a letter in order to support bsb during their next album...all we want todo is support them, wether in 5 or we need signatures to show them how many fans in the world are here to stay next to them...please read carefully...don't mistake the sense of the's not a petition to have kevin back..we perfectly know that is his decision, but a way to saly to them "hey, no matter what we're here for you!

here's the letter

Accept Kevin’s decision to leave the group. We understand the there are moments in life in which a man has to come up with tough decisions and to live for himself for a while.

We want to say that no matter what we will always support the Backstreet Boys and their music, even if they will remain 4, and especially we will support Kevin in his future projects and hope many life achievements!

We only complain for this solution, which seems too drastic to us. We are sure Kevin needs sometime to put order in his life and to achieve something as a single man, something that it’s only his. So why not giving him some time for himself?
We’ve been waiting for years for them to come back, they can’t leave us so, none of them!
So we are ready to wait other 6, 8 or even10 years without albums, only to let Kevin, or whoelse in the group needs, have his own life. We don’t need a Backstreet Boys incomplete album right now, we can wait all the time they need! Nick and Brian have had their own space, so we are sure Kevin deserves his too now. You guys have always helped each other through the worst moments in your life, now it’s Kevin’s turn to have some support from you and from us. Let’s give him time to think about this drastic decision and to try to find a better way out.

All we wanted to show this way is that we love the Boys in 5 as they’ve always been, but we will accept all their decisions because we respect them. We only want to say that even if we are pressuring you guys always asking you to make new albums and in some way to live for us only, this time it’s not worth it! We prefer another album in 2017 with all of you, than one in 2007 with only a part of you!

Kevin will always be our elder brother, our adviser and best listener, but more than everything else, he will always be a Backstreet Boy! Please come back home!
We love you guys.

so far I have collected all the signatures you gave me, but if have more send your name surname and nationality to these email addresses:

I happen to agree these boy bands like Wackstreet Toys are a corruption to music.
