Overview

On July 20th, 21st, 23rd and 24th at a sold out Giants Stadium, (1990), the New kids On The Block with their record producer and manager Maurice Starr, made a triumphant entrance into new York city. Their lives had been filled with hard work, determination, dedication, confidence, success and many failures, but they never lost their belief, love, and loyalty for Maurice Starr and one another. Theirs is a history filled with respect for people of all backgrounds, cultures and colors. This is the true story of the mean streets of Boston, it's rappers, singers and dancers; the funk, pop, blues, rock and soul..the back alleys, down south and the recording industry

Five working-class boys living in the “blue collar districts” of Boston, called North Dorchester and Jamaica Plain, and a record producer from the black ghetto of Roxbury would go to the dizzying heights of the music world at a speed so phenomenal, that it shattered all existing record sales and concert tour sales.

From the bottom, to the top, this is the true, undoctored, hard-hitting, fact-filled story of Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Danny Wood, Joe McIntyre………….. New Kids On The Block.........and a guy named Maurice Starr.

"Come with me and let me tell you the true story, the real story, the only story. I was there"..Tony Rose.

    I really wanted to read and like this, but...

    There are an amazing amount of typos. So many that it makes this a really difficult read. I'm sure it would have been a good book if it was readable. I wasted my money buying this.
