MuchMusic.com caught up with Brian Littrell for a Coupla Questions, including if the Backstreet Boys star will always remember what he was doing when he heard the news about Kevin Richardson leaving the group. “Yes, I will never forget having kind of a sit-down meeting on the European leg of the ‘Never Gone’ tour, the end of last year,” he explained. “It was just before I had written ‘Welcome Home’, the single off the CD. You know, I was kind of like, scratching my head, thinking like, how can we lobby and rally the troops to maybe get him to think otherwise. But unfortunately that didn’t happen. But I wish him well in any and everything that he does – he’ll always be a part of the Backstreet Boys.”
