'N the Beginning

There are a ton of boy bands on the charts today, all competing for the top spots. What makes 'N Sync so special?

'N Sync stands out because the young men in it are genuine; they're not a prepackaged rent-a-band put together by big-time music promoters. Justin Timberlake explains: "We put the group together ourselves. I think that's something that's paid off in the long run because we were friends before we got a management team and before we got a record deal."

Lance Bass agrees."Everything that we do is always together, and I think that's what makes the group unique."

The web of their friendship is dizzying. Flashback to 1995: Pennsylvania native Chris Kirkpatrick was living in Orlando, Florida, and working at Universal Studios as a doo-wop singer. It was there that he met and became friendly with Brooklyn-born Joey Fatone. Meanwhile, Washington, D.C., native JC Chasez and Memphis boy Justin Timberlake had just wrapped a stint together on The Mickey Mouse Club, also in Orlando. Justin knew Chris from auditions, and JC was friendly with Joey, whose high-school buddies had also been on The Mickey Mouse Club.

Chris was itching to put a group together--a group who could take five-part harmonies and translate them into pop music. He contacted Justin, who, he knew, could sing. Justin enlisted JC, and soon old pal Joey fell into the fold.

The foursome was ready to make a go of it, but they lacked something important.

Though Chris, JC, Justin, and Joey had wide vocal ranges, not one of them felt he had a solid enough bass.

Justin immediately called his vocal coach back home inMemphis, hoping the coach would be able to recommend the perfect "low guy." Enter James Lansten "Lance" Bass, a good-natured country boy from Clinton, Mississippi. Lance jumped on the next flight to Orlando and, upon arrival, instantly hit it off with the guys. Chris, Justin, Joey, and JC knew they had found their final member.
