Backstreet Boys star advises One Direction & The Wanted to enjoy every moment

Backstreet Boys singer Kevin Richardson has advised One Direction and The Wanted to enjoy every moment after being asked about the younger generation of boybands. 

The 40-year-old, who only recently rejoined the ‘I Want It That Way’ hit-makers, told E! Online that the the groups following in their footsteps should make the most of their experiences:

He said: “Really enjoy the moment. And stay true to yourself. It's hard when things get so big and successful like that and the wheels are rolling.

“You've got all kinds of people pulling you in all different directions. Managers, agents, record labels. But stay true to yourself and savor every moment and have a blast."

Richardson, who is also pursuing an acting career with roles in The Casserole Club and Bloody Indulgent, also confirmed that the original line-up of the Backstreet Boys are to record and tour again in the near future:

“We go into the studio next month in London. Start recording our next album together, all five of us. And next year in 2013 will be our 20th anniversary. April of 2013 will be 20 years.

"We're going to release the album and put together a tour, a world tour. I'm sure on that day we'll have some kind of a big bash as well.”
