An intimate, all-access, backstage pass to everything New Kids on the Block, from their rise to fame in the 1980s to their fall from grace in the 1990s—and their triumphant comeback today.Jordan, Jon, Joe, Donnie, and Danny. They set the bar for every boy band to come and changed the course of pop music forever. In the 1980s, for millions of young people around the world, they were gods. But behind the scenes, they were just kids. In this completely authorized biography of the band, the New Kids tell it all to rock author Nikki Van Noy.     From makeshift stages in Boston clubs to sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden, through winning American Music Awards and selling 80 million records, the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) were a rite of passage and a touchstone of youthful memories. Scoring platinum albums, and with a series of sold-out international tours, NKOTB blazed through North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia, leaving throngs of screaming teen and tween girls in their wake. Today, fans both old and new celebrate the band’s triumphant comeback. Nikki Van Noy talks directly to those loyal fans, as well as the band members, weaving their stories together in this no-holds-barred chronicle.      With frankness and honesty, each New Kid recalls nearly thirty years of experience with the group, both on and off the stage, from their first auditions in a run-down brownstone in Boston to the lackluster sales of their first album, and finally to their current status as a household name. Like a time machine, this book will take you right back—giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the New Kids like you’ve never seen them before.

This book just straight up made me smile! I didn't learn anything new for the most part, but I got to relive those butterfly feelings I had for NKOTB back in the day. I got to remember all the concerts I went to, the shirts, buttons, pillowcases and dolls I had, and my pure love of Danny Wood. Um, w...

My goodreads friends know that I’m a die hard fan girl of NKOTB. So, when the news broke about this authorized biography, I was all up on the pre-order when it was available. This book takes you through the New Kids’ journey…from the start, to their breakup, to their reunion and then to present time...
