Excerpts from the Book

Q. What do Brian and the Backstreet Boys enjoy doing when they aren't performing? What do they do in their spare time?

A. Brian and the boys have a lot of hobbies. They like sports, video games, and girls. Brian lived at my parents' house, a.k.a the Stonebraker Pad (that's how he referred to it in the thank-you of his albums) for over two years. He became very close with my family, especially my little brothers, Steven and John. Steven and Brian are the closest in age and have a lot of the same hobbies. They both love basketball. Brian really admired my brother's skills, and they played together all the time. In the video for "We've Got It Goin' On", there is a scene of Nick and Brian playing basketball with my brother Steven. The director wanted to show the ball going through the hoop. Nick and Brian were so nervous, because it was their first video shoot, they couldn't make a basket. The director ended up taking shoots of Brian and Nick shooting and then brought in my brother to actually make the shots!....

Q. What's Brian's biggest secret?

A. It's no big secret that Brian absolutely adores his mother. But not everyone knows just how much. More than any other guy I've met, Brian is a mama's boy. They are very close, which is so sweet....

Q. What kind of clothes do Brian and the other Backstreet Boys like their girlfriends to wear?

A. I get this question a lot, because girls want to know how to attract or impress the Backstreet Boys.... Alex is very alternative, so he likes his girlfriends to be creative with their wardrobes.... Alex's style can be over-the-top, which a lot of people can't pull of and still look good. You would have to be one of those unique girls that can pull off this unique style to attract Alex.... Kevin has always loved style. He's the most stylish of the group. His girlfriend Kristen is from New York and has always had a classy but cutting-edge look.... Howie has never been tied down to one particular style. His girlfriends dress in an array of outfits ranging from long dresses to short shorts.... I do have to mention Howie's girlfriend, Sabrina, had a very sexy wardrobe and Howie loved it....(**NOTE** Sam is talking about an ex-girlfriend) Nick and Brian always like their girlfriends in cute, fresh, and hip styles. Tommy Jean were always a favorite. They like revealing outfits, but not too much exposure....

Q. What was the funniest moment you shared with the Backstreet Boys?

A. I experienced some hilarious times with the Boys. I actually caught one of the funniest ones on camera. They were in the middle of a photo shoot that was becoming a little boring. I got them to play around a bit, and we came up with the idea of shooting them in the bathroom. The band stood there pretending to use the facilities and all looked back at me for the shot. It was really pretty funny and livened up the day's shoot. They will pose for just about any picture for a good laugh....

Q. Is Brian a good kisser?

A. This is one of the questions I'm most often asked. The answer is yes-- he's a great kisser! It's nice to have the same style of kissing with your boyfriend. Kissing is a sweet way to show your affection for someone. The Backstreet Boys' management didn't like them to show any public display of affection. They felt the fans wouldn't like it. This make things hard; imagine not being able to give your boyfriend a sweet kiss when you wanted. All we heard was "No PDAs!"-- public displays of affection. When I think back, it was kind of funny....

I hope you enjoyed that. These are just some of the things in Sam's book, What You Wanna Know. Now, the answers are not the complete answers, just bits and pieces of Sam's complete answers. Are you curious enough to give the book a chance?? I hope so.
