Former Backstreet Boys And ‘NSYNC Manager Lou Pearlman Dies At 62 | Music News

Lou Perlman 21.08.2016ANDREW


Lou Pearlman, who, in his time, managed acts such as Backstreet Boys and ‘NSYNC, has died, say press reports. At the time of his death, he was serving a 25-year prison term after found orchestrating a half-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme in 2008.


Pearlman very much shaped the careers of Backstreet Boys and ‘NSYNC, and was also involved with LFO, Aaron Carter, and girl group, Innosense, which featured a young Britney Spears. In the 1990s, his business turned into one of epic proportions, an empire.


His acts dominated the world of popular music, with the Backstreet Boys landing six Top 10 singles in the Hot 100, and nine albums in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200. However, being caught out with that aforementioned epic fraud, he was sued by almost every act he managed.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
