What is the appetite these days for the kind of entertainment put out by the likes of the Backstreet Boys? And if Backstreet’s back (alright!), can Aaron Carter get some of that?
Ask Joe Johnson about the Beatles, and you’ll unleash a torrent of memories, song titles, gossip, side projects and production trivia that quickly meld into a psychedelic “goo goo goo joob.” He just may know too much about the Beatles.
Try to imagine Vibe Las Olas filled with a young party crowd, dressed to impress, but everyone’s sober and it’s broad daylight. Impossible, I know.
