HitsDailyDouble.com recently spoke with the guys from BBMak and asked about the difficulties that British bands have had making it in the U.S., something they’ve managed to overcome. “Honestly, I don’t think that a lot of British bands are really prepared to do the necessary work. England is so small that you can be really successful touring for just a couple of weeks. In America, we spent a whole year doing everything we could to sell albums and get on the charts.” Bandmate Mark Barry added, “Bands like Westlife, who are huge in the U.K., come over to America for maybe a month. After a month with nothing happening, they start getting cold feet and think, ‘I better get back to England where I’m loved.’ They don’t want to risk losing that fan base.”
