98 Degrees Singer Admits He Loves Pancit, Jeeps And Beautiful Filipinas

MANILA, Philippines — Former 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons is looking forward to performing in Manila because of pancit, crazy traffic rides and insanely beautiful Pinays.
“I know Manila fairly well. I love pancit and other foods from that area. The jeepney’s crack me up, and the traffic and mega malls are bananas,” Timmons said in an e-mail interview with Bulletin Entertainment.
What balances wild traffic in Manila are its people. He said, “The people are amazing. They treated us like kings. Always greeted with ‘Hi, Sir,’ and ‘Thank you, Sir.’ They only talk like that in some parts of the US. The women are gorgeous and sweet... Shhh... don’t tell my wife I said that...”
Timmons is set for ’90s boyband pop nostalgia when he performs familiar hits from 98 Degrees alongside era brothers Blue and a1 in “The Greatest Hits Tour: Blue, Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees and a1 Concert” on Feb. 25, 2012 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Timmons and his ex-band mates are behind a solid catalogue (“Invisible Man,” “Because Of You,” “The Hardest Thing,” “I Do (Cherish You)” and “My Everything”). When asked to reminisce about his group and to share his thoughts about having gone solo, he replied: “I don’t really worry about living up to any legacy to tell you the truth. 98 Degrees had a great run, and made its mark during its time, which I’m very proud of.
“My music and performances have shown growth as a solo artist, and I’m continuing to grow as an artist. All you can always do is your best, and measure yourself up to your own standards. Compete with yourself at all times, and try to leave the audience with something they can feel great about.”
Timmons’ favorite record from his old group is “Invisible Man.” “Out of all the hits, ‘Invisible Man’ is my favorite. It is the most soulful of our radio songs, and it was the first song we ever heard of ourselves on the radio.”
He shared that the mega-wedding hit “I Do” was recorded in a special period in his life. “We recorded ‘I Do’ in Nashville with mega-producer Keith Thomas. I remember being there right after finding out about my ex-wife being pregnant with our daughter.”
But as he moves on a solo act, Timmons said he would love to collaborate with other artists. “I am working on new music. I’d love to work with contemporaries like Bruno Mars and Ne-Yo, but also legends like Teddy Riley, R Kelly, Babyface, Brian McKnight, Mariah Carey, and Christina [Aguilera].”
Blue – composed of Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan, Duncan James and Antony Costa – is behind “All Rise,” “Too Close,” “If You Come Back,” “Fly By,” “One Love,” “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word,” “Guilty,” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” while a1 has the following singles under its belt: “Like A Rose,” “Take On Me,” “Ready Or Not / Everytime,” “Same Old Brand New You,” “Caught In The Middle” and “Make It Good.”

Creative Disc Interview with Jeff Timmons

So fun to hear Jeff  interviewed again across seas! SOURCE--Translated into English for you!!! =) Thanks to Creative Disc for letting me know to re-upload this interview!!

Hello, my name is Danny Cung from CreativeDisc.com, and an honor for me to interview a Jeff Timmons, founder of the group 98 Degrees. Hi Jeff, how are you?

Jeff: Hi, very good .. Thank you very much.
Where are you now and what are you doing? Moderate or promo tour there?

Jeff: I'm not actually on tour right now. I was in Las Vegas, spending time with family only, after completing my show last summer with the Chippendales. And now, I am preparing a new show at the new theater as well, Giordano Theater, which is housed at the Fashion Show Mall. I am very pleased with this project!
So, what makes you interested in making this Greatest Hits tour with the Blue & A1 in Asia?

Jeff: Every time I get the chance visit to Southeast Asia, I always agree. We have a very supportive fanbase 98 Degrees, and coupled with the tour with great groups like the Blue and A1, is a very wait-wait, and I feel honored to be part of it.
What is it like to work with Blue & A1? Did you find it difficult, given their backgrounds are different countries?

Jeff: Not at all. As I said earlier, I am very honored to be touring together with a group of large, high album sales, and a lot of hits.I think the fans were able to sort through, no matter who we are, the type of music played, the important thing they're good, That makes a statement in Itself . Not important where they came from, if they're good act, then I can be associate with Them , I would feel very pleased to be involved.
As the founder of 98 Degrees, according to thee what this group will be formed again, and perhaps with new personnel?

Jeff: Well, good question, about 98 Degrees, whether we will get back together. And even though I acted as the founder of this group, but I not have the authority to issue or attract new members to this group. We're like a brother, Nick, Drew, Justin, and me, and I think if we intend to get back together, only there will be 4 people, no one else. However I can not be sure whether the opportunity will be there, because now we have a busy individual. Maybe someday, but not in the near future.
Furthermore, if you are planning to release a new album this year? There may be leaks about his album title and release when?

Jeff: I'll release a solo project in the near future. But I still do not know whether in the form of the album; which obviously I've got about 60 songs, and maybe I will just release it in the form of singles, one by one. Because in my opinion, this time people tend to prefer buying singles than an album full. So, I will be consistent with the single release, maybe just the material that I can have more than one album if combined, but I am very pleased with the results, new & fresh , up-tempo beat, and contemporary music,and I hope everybody really, really likes it!
Okay. About the concert in Jakarta (26 Feb) and Napier (2 Mar) next. I think this is the first time you go to Indonesia.Are there any special preparations are you doing?

Jeff: I have been to Indonesia several times, and I think there is one time 98 Degrees visit there, we were the last group of overseas tour, and when we come back, we became the first group the back. Obviously I am very familiar with the culture of Indonesia, super-duper excited to see again with our fans of course. And if I, Blue and A1 have a song that we prepared together? Not at this time. But who knew there was another surprise from us to you.
The last one. Can convey something to your fans in Indonesia?

Jeff: Well, here it is. "Coming The Greatest Hits Tour. I, Blue, and A1 in Jakarta and Makassar. "(In Indonesian)
Thank you, Jeff. Thank you for your time.
Jeff: Thank you very much ..
Thanks For @ Cung2 for the mixing and @ RendyNdoo for the translation!

Post image for The Ultimate Boyband Concert: Blue, a1 and Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees

As much as we want to do not want to admit this, boybands will never be a thing of the past. Many a time, we find ourselves digging our iTunes playlist to find tunes by our favourite boybands. Close the door to the bedroom and dance yourself silly to the silly pop tunes, that about explains what we do when a boyband song comes along. Of course, let’s not talk about the embarrassing posters that we used to put up, with or without those smooch stains.
Guard your heart because One Productions is bringing in the greatest boyband concert of all time, with not just one but three bands that had once rocked your world. We are talking about the evergreen boybands of our youth, Blue, a1 and Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees. They will be performing together on the same stage for on February 28 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. You can say that it is a clash of the bands, but we would rather say that too many cooks can make it work too. Yes, you can go ahead and scream now.
The aged group from A1 are still the boys that they once were. The fans here would definitely not mind the increase in age because after all, we have grown up with them. But one thing their fans should look forward to is their new rendition of their smash hit Like A Rose,” which arguably is their biggest song in the ears of fans this side of the globe. Member Ben Adams who wrote “Like A Rose” is thrilled to announce their performance of the said version. “We have just updated it for a brand new version for 2012, which was amazingly fun to do! Very excited for you all to hear it!” He recalled, “I wrote it when I was 16 years old on my old upright piano at my parents house. I haven’t told anyone this really as most people assume it’s a love song, but it was actually originally written for my mom!”A1 started making a big splash when their first single, “Be the First to Believe,” entered the UK charts at #6 in early 1999. They had a huge amount of success worldwide with two #1s and eighty top 10 hits. Some of their other hits are “Take On Me”, “Ready or Not / Everytime”, “Same Old Brand New You”, “Caught in the Middle” and “Make It Good”. The band might very well play tunes from their new album which will be released soon under MCA Music, now that would be such a treat bevause we have not heard new music from them for years!
Joining a1 for the February 28 concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium are contemporaries Blue andJeff Timmons, lead vocalist of the now defunct 98 Degrees. Fans can expect for these guys to sing their biggest hits and surprise cuts in the triple-treat concert dubbed The Greatest Hits Tour: Blue, Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees and a1 – Live in Singapore.
Asked about his favorite 98 Degrees song, Timmons, who has remained faithful to his group’s tracks even as a solo performer, noted, “Out of all the hits, Invisible Man is my favorite.  It is the most soulful of our radio songs, and it was the first song we ever heard of ourselves on the radio.”He added, “We recorded ‘I Do’ in Nashville with mega-producer Keith Thomas. I remember being there right after finding out about my ex-wife being pregnant with our daughter.”The group’s unforgettable R&B, soul, urban and contemporary pop sound lives on especially with major hits like “Because of You,” “The Hardest Thing,” and “My Everything.”
The English vocal group Blue comprised of Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan, Duncan James and Antony Costa, is the last to join this concert. They appeared briefly last year for Ion Orchard’s second year anniversary. Performing live for a free concert, the crowd flooded the entire Orchard road to deafening screams. So it is no surprise that the quartet is excited to be back here at the anticipation of fans here in Singapore. They are set to paint the town red by singing live their hits such as “All Rise,” “Too Close,” “If You Come Back,” “Fly By,” “One Love,” “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word,” “Guilty,” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).”

The Greatest Hits World Tour: A1, Blue and 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons - Live in Singapore are set to perform on February 28 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Tickets are available via SISTIC at www.sistic.com.sg and +65 6348 5555 and all authorized SISTIC agents.

OMG! Exclusive - Filipino bands make Jeff Timmons nervous

By Maridol Rañoa-Bismark 

98 Degrees founding member Jeff Timmons admits having mixed feelings about performing again in the Philippines on Saturday, Feb. 25, when he mounts a show with pop vocal group Blue and dance-pop band A1 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

“I’m very excited because of the pretty girls,” he told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! in a phone interview.

But he feels jittery, even if it’s his fifth time to perform in the country.

Jeff recalls the first time he went to the Philippines. Jeff and fellow 98 Degrees members Nick and Drew Lachey decided to try out a bar where a house band was performing.

“Everybody in the whole restaurant sings! They were singing Mariah Carey, Cristina Aguilera, everything! I was so nervous! We were sitting in the room and I was so nervous! They know they have talent so they make me all the bit more nervous.”

Jeff’s memory about rehearsing with a Filipino band also makes the butterflies in his stomach fly even faster.

“I’ve been with a Filipino band before,” he recalls. “I had an album called ‘Whisper That Way.’ I was rehearsing with the guys. Everything better than me. I’m nervous. Those guys are the best background singers!”

The butterflies vanish, however, when Jeff sees how much the crowd takes to his music.

“But I also know I’m embraced there, and the group’s embraced there. It’s not that bad a deal for me.”

Filipino back-up band

The guy is not just paying lip service to Filipino talent. Jeff chose a Filipino band to back him up in “The Greatest Hits Tour with Blue, Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees and A1.” So Jeff is not letting his guard down.

“The promoter tells me there’s supposed to be an extremely talented band and I’m almost nervous (Jeff chose Jay Durias as his musical director),” he admits. “Believe it or not, I’ve performed with Bryan McKnight and Mariah Carey (but) I’m nervous about the Filipino band. The Filipino bands can rock the house!”

Jeff vows to give the fans what they want -- good old 98 Degrees staples like “Invisible Man,” ”I Do (Cherish You)” and “The Hardest Thing,” among others. But he also promises to do “new stuff” he’s crossing his fingers the crowd will enjoy.

Dealing with disappointments

Sure, he’ll feel let down “if I see one sad face in the audience,” if he sings an up tempo jam and “somebody’s not feeling it.”

But Jeff will not back off. He will still give it a shot. At 39 and with two children, the eldest of whom is almost 13, Jeff has learned that disappointed is part of the deal.

“My kids are always disappointed,” he reveals. “They didn’t get the right Nintendo or Wii of whatever. I’m used to that now.”

No wonder Jeff doesn’t let anything bring him down, especially in his music.

“You should believe in yourself. I know it’s a corny cliché. But you gotta believe in yourself and if you’re 100 percent confident you can achieve success.”

That success, he goes on, doesn’t have to spell big bucks.

“I would rather you check out my new stuff and go, ‘Wow!’ I’m kinda feeling this guy!”

That’s why he’s pulling all the stops to get as close to the crowd as he can in his upcoming show in Manila.

“I’ll watch the audience and do what they do. I’ll go down the stage ad interact. I will give it a different flavor. 98 Degrees was very structured.”

Now, they like the Jeff Timmons they see, he will “peddle my music” and strike it out on his own, minus the 98 Degrees tag.

Being on his own

“I think it’s better being on my own,” Jeff muses.

If not, he always has his 98 Degrees background to fall back on.

“For now, it’s Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees,” he reveals.

Whether or not will be just Jeff Timmons after the Big Dome show is something he is humble enough to leave to the crowd.

After all, a crowd who can make Jeff Timmons nervous must be a crowd worth paying attention to.

My wife accepts my craziness--JEFF


Behind every rejuvenated man is a woman.
US pop singer Jeff Timmons, a founding member of the once popular 90s US boy band 98 Degrees, counts wife Amanda as the stabilising force in his life. They first met while she was on holiday in Los Angeles three years ago. They were married the day before Thanksgiving in 2010 and held another wedding in Las Vegas last September.
The couple had a daughter two months ago.
The 38-year-old told The New Paper over the phone from Las Vegas: "We're going to get married again every year.
"When I first talked to Amanda, I was absolutely smitten. At that point, I was very sceptical when it came to love.
"With Amanda it's totally different. I admit I didn't really know what I was doing in my first marriage (to ex-wife Trisha Sperry).
Timmons shares custody of his two children, daughter Alyssa and son Jeffrey Jr, with Sperry.
He gushed: "Amanda's really accepting of all my idiosyncrasies and craziness. It really helps that she's totally into my music as well, because artistes need support, period."
He continued: "For example, in the middle of the night, you might get a surge of creative inspiration and have to get up to get it down on paper, otherwise you'd forget it.
"Amanda understands that and the fact that I won't ever have a nine-to-five job."
From May to September last year, Timmons was a guest star with the Chippendales male song-and-dance strip act, which performs nightly at the Las Vegas Rio Hotel and Casino.
Timmons said: "Amanda was there to see me perform every night. "I was feeling quite shy about being topless on stage, but her attitude could not be more different than mine.
"She really encouraged me to be sexy and spontaneous, and helped me be disciplined enough to stay in shape for the show."
Timmons will perform with British-Norwegian boyband a1 and British boy band Blue on The Greatest Hits Tour concert here next month.
It's the first time Timmons is in Singapore as a solo act.
98 Degrees was last here in 1998 to perform at the Culture Club.
He said: "I've never met either band, but obviously I know them by reputation... I think it will be great performing with them."
Timmon's journey from his 98 Degrees heyday has been long and often painful.
The quartet also comprised brothers Nick and Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre.
He admitted: "I'd been stumbling, more or less, in the past 10 years.
"When the era of boy bands came to an end in the early 2000s, there was a very big backlash, and 98Degrees got caught up in that, despite the fact that I considered us to be more of a vocal group."
98 Degrees last performed together live in 2001 at Madison Square Garden in New York for the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Special. He said: "We've talked very much about getting back together, but it's difficult to fit everybody's schedules in.
"Nick had become a star (on reality TV show Newlyweds: Nick And Jessica) in 2003, and we were all busy doing our own things. "In fact, between 2004 and 2009, I was doing a whole lot of nothing.
"I wasn't really succeeding musically and I just wasn't in a good place." He added: "The Chippendales gig gave me real confidence. The Greatest Hits Tour is the perfect opportunity. I feel like my identity has evolved. I've got my own distinct sound and writing style.
"I'll definitely be performing a whole lot of 98 Degrees hits (which include I Do, This Gift and My Everything).
"Now that I'm singing solo, I'll just carbon copy Nick, Drew and Justin's voices on stage," he joked.
Timmons nevertheless confessed to having nerves about performing 98 Degrees songs live on stage after so many years.
He said: "Can I carry it on my own? Maybe not like how we used to do it as 98 Degrees, but I'll give it my best shot.
"Blue, a1 and I guarantee a show that will knock the audience's socks off."
What: The Greatest Hits Tour: Blue, a1 and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees
Where: Singapore Indoor Stadium
When: Feb 28, 8pm TICKETS: $168, $148, $128, $108 and $88 from Sistic (www.sistic.com.sg or 6348 5555)
