Washington, (ANI): Time to rejoice for Backstreet Boys' fans, for the popular boy band of the 90s are planning for a second stint at stardom and want to be as big as the Rolling Stones. The popstars who enjoyed a string of hits, including 'I Want It That Way', have reformed minus former bandmate Kevin Richardson.
Singer Nick Carter, who has been battling alcohol and drug demons for 10 years, has sobered up for their comeback tour. He is also said to have lost four stone. "There are demons I am fighting but I just want to be fit and healthy. If you fall off the horse, you just have to get back on again," Contactmusic quoted him Carter as saying. He added: "We're here to stay - we want to be as big as the Rolling Stones."
