Maybe it’s because he is from New York but Nick is the bad boy of the group. He was once charged with a misdemeanoury count of resisting/opposing a law enforcement officer without violence.

Florida born Howie was once supposed to sing the national anthem at a high school basketball game but he forgot the lyrics and he felt bad; but, then he sang Unchained Melody at a school talent show and it made all the girls cry and all the boys jealous. Despite the tension in the audience he got a standing ovation when he hit the high note.
