Biography

Milli Vanilli was a pop vocal group that formed in Germany in 1988. The face of the band was composed of models Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus, whom producer Frank Farian had chosen because he felt the real singers were unmarketable. The duo only appeared on the album cover, and lip-synched to pre-recorded studio singers in music videos and in concert.

In 1990, they were awarded the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, but later became the only act in history to have their Grammy stripped from them when it was revealed that they had not been involved in the creation of their breakthrough album, Girl You Know It’s True.

In 1998, Rob Pilatus was found dead in a hotel near Frankfurt.

    I had a strange dream recently, which included a segment in which I was walking through a music store, and there were Milli Vanilli compilation CDs being sold, with pictures of the actual singers on the front.

    Say what you will about Milli Vanilli, but their music was pretty damn good! They had some sick beats!

    I hate how this whole "scandal" went down. I hate how the execs tried to cover their dumb asses up by pointing fingers at these two guys who were part of Frank Farian's idea. They were just the pretty faces... I hate how people made so much of a big deal over it, wanting refunds and shit. If you bought the album you LIKED THE MUSIC, who cares who sang it, it's catchy and freakin awesome. They didn't deserve to take the fall, and Rob didn't deserve to be pushed down hill. Fab, your solo album was a masterpiece, I'll always remember you as a brilliant artist and the music of Milli Vanilli will always be legendary. [2]

    They should put up pictures of the REAL Milli Vanilli, not these poseurs! The music's not fake, just the images. Those were real people too, just not the musicians. It's our stupid image-obsessed society and this was a few years after "video killed the radio star".
