Market Saturation does not work. White suits do not work. GOOD MUSIC is the ONLY thing that works.
Screw image, screw web presence, screw high profile TV appearances, without GOOD HONEST MUSIC you are as disposable as a condom and not nearly as useful.
Yes reunions have been the thing to do in the latter part of the 2000’s but that does not mean its the right thing to do.
Let sleeping dogs lie, and leave dead dogs alone. Don’t dig them up and reanimating them and turn them into zombies. Its gross, its false, and it lasts for about 2 seconds. NKOTB had mediocre music to begin with why put humanity through it.
I’ll leave you with this.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9KC7uhMY9s]
