J.C. Chasez launches girl group

WENN

Former 'N Sync star J.C. Chasez has gone back to his pop roots to form a new group, Girl Radical. 

The ex-boy-bander has drawn on his experiences in 'N Sync to launch his megagroup, which has 11 members. The former "America's Best Dance Crew" judge was inspired by the Japanese band AKB48, which has between 48 and 60 in the lineup at any given time.

Bing: Check out Girl Radical's first video

Chasez tells Billboard magazine, "We saw one of their music videos, and I was blown away. It was like this army on stage performing, and I've always been attracted to the spectacle. I was like, 'We should build our own pop group, but in our own way.'"

Girl Radical's first single is a cover of No Doubt's 1995 hit "Just A Girl."

"If we knew, we'd quit the band and become managers." - John Lennon, when asked back in 1964 what was the secret to The Beatles' success.

I've been in the music business (professionally) 27 years and NOTHING and I mean NOTHING drives me (and many of the fine and talented musicians I work with) up the wall more than when I hear/read these incompetent IDIOT writers/TV host call a singing GROUP a DA$N BAND! EARTH WIND & FIRE IS A BAND, The Commodores, The Doors, THE EAGLES, THE ROLLING STONES, THE BEATLES, LED ZEPPELIN, THE GRATEFUL DEAD, PINK FLOYD, BOB SEGAR AND THE SILVER BULLET BAND , MAZE,  BAR-KAYS, FOO FIGHTERS. MAROON-5, Average White BAND (to name a few) are BANDS! The Temptations, 4-Tops, The Platters, Backstreet Boys, NKOTB, New EDITION, N'SYNC are ( singing) GROUPS NOT BANDS!

So it's a large group of people singing covers and maybe even original music? Sounds like Glee.
