    98 Degrees - Putting The Pieces Together

    Jeff Timmons had the idea to start a group when he met Nick Lachey in Cincinnati. They decided to relocate to Los Angeles. Nick Lachey's pal Justin Jeffre joined the group and then came Drew Lachey (Nick Lachey's bro) who actually replaced another member who didn't work out.

    98 Degrees Get's Their Big Break

    98 Degrees began promoting themselves by going to talent shows and auditions. It wasn't until they met Montell Jordan's manager backstage at a Boys II Men concert that their luck would change. They signed to Motown Records and six months later in 1997 they released their first album 98 Degrees. Invisible Man was their first hit and the song made people take notice. The next year 98 Degrees released their second album 98 Degrees and Rising. In 2000, 98 Degrees released their 3rd album Revelation.

    The boys from 98 Degrees are taking a little break from touring and recording to pursue their individual interests. They assure their fans that they have NOT broken up. Drew Lachey finally married his high school sweetie Lea Dellecave who he's known since grade 5. Nick Lachey married pop diva Jessica Simpson.

It was worse than it intended to be.
