Remember Beatlemania? It's happening all over again. They're British. They're hot. They're talented. They're BBMak! The journey began overseas where Mark, Ste, and Christian played in different bands before finally meeting up. Flash forward, four years later, BBMak has a number one hit in Japan and is currently taking the U.S. by storm with Back Here, the first single off their upcoming album Sooner or Later.

Ste, the group's guitarist/singer and self-proclaimed shy guy remarks, "You look at Mark and think he must be drummer or something, but he plays the bagpipes." Bagpipes? Now that would be a sight to see. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be incorporated into the group's show. Mark's actually the lead singer. His first brush with fame was "about seven years ago, in Manchester. I played the bagpipes on stage. It was a night time gig, in front of 50,000 people. That was my first experience in front of a crowd. It was amazing. I will never forget that feeling I got from being on stage." He certainly won't! BBMak will be sharing the stage with Ms. Britney Spears on her summer tour. "I'm from England so I look forward to visiting every city," Ste exclaims.

Life on the road could get tough, but Christian's light hearted personality is sure to keep the mates spirits a' lifted. His messy bunk will be another story, however! Apparently, Christian is "quite untidy. He's got all this clothes lying about on the floor. Ste, on the otherhand, is really organized and his room is always spotless," Mark laughs.

That's BBMak for ya. They're crazy, sexy, and cool... oh, and, did we emphasize CRAZY?! "We were at the Sky Bar in LA, having a few drinks, and Keanu Reeves was there. One of our friends said, 'I feel like jumping in the pool.' So, we all jumped into the pool, fully clothed, soaking wet. It was actually good luck," Mark reminisces. Enough luck to make that Disney Channel concert of there's surpass 'N Sync's previous ratings? Although optimistic about it, Christian explains, "We don't put all our eggs in one basket. It's going to help us get our message across, but you can never rely on something completely. A lot of other things have to happen, as well." And things certainly seem to be happening! With a DC concert to their name, a Britney Spears tour underway, and a truly amazing album ready for release, BBMak is sure to be the next big thing...

In between BBMak's Teen People photo shoot, we got a chance to chat with Mark, Ste, & Christian. We wanted to see things from their prospective and see if they see eye to eye. We took each one aside and this is what they had to say seperately.

Lindzi.com: Do you work well under pressure?

Ste: Yes -- very well under pressure. That's when you get the best out of us.

Christian: We work under anything, but we probably work best when we're not under pressure.

Lindzi.com: What drives you insane?

Mark: I hate traffic jams. The traffic in London is horrible.

Ste: Traffic jams!

Christian: I hate cueing lines.

Lindzi.com: Do you guys ever fight?

Mark: We generally get along fantasic. We know each other inside out. If we ever argue, it's only about who's going to get in the shower first or something petty like that. We all have the same goals.

Christian: Nah! Not really. Only over stupid things like showers and stuff. Is that what the others said? [Ed Note: Yes, it is! No need to worry. haha.]
