From our "What? They're still around?" department:
CNN.com brings us this:
The Backstreet Boys are saying goodbye to the oldest member of their band, according to a statement posted on the group's Web site Saturday.
Maybe they should get together with the non-Justiny members of 'NSYNC and a few stragglers from NKOTB and merge into a new band, AMALGAM.
And while we're talking mergers, why don't the remaining members of the Grateful Dead and the Rolling Stones merge into The Rolling Dead?
