I still remember the day I/my teenage daughter went to buy video music "Milli Vanilli", we loved the cute/fun/sad
songs and they were great dancers too. We love every songs in that album.

Rob Pilatus(June 8, 1965 – April 2, 1998) was a German-American model and break dancer, before joining Fabrice Morvan in 1988 to form the pop group Milli Vanilli.
Pilatus and Morvan were noticed by music producer Frank Farian, who signed them to be part of a musical act.
Shortly after a trip to Turkey, where the duo reputedly took its name from a local advertising slogan, Milli
Vanilli was born. Pilatus and Morvan served as the public faces for singers Charles Shaw and Brad Howell, who
Farian thought were talented but lacked a marketable image
The first Milli Vanilli platinum album was Girl You Know It's True, which became a worldwide hit. The album
produced five hit singles including three number 1 hits, "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You", "Baby Don't Forget My Number"
and "Blame It On The Rain". Milli Vanilli won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist on February 21, 1990 for "Girl
You Know It's True".
Despite the enormous success, the duo were a frequent target of rumours and allegations of onstage lip-synching and not having sung on the album. Charles Shaw, one of the actual vocalists, told a reporter the truth, but
retracted his statement after Farian paid him $150,000.
When Pilatus and Morvan pressured Farian to let them sing on the next album, Farian admitted to reporters on
November 15, 1990 that they had not performed on the recordings. Milli Vanilli's Grammy Award was withdrawn four
days later, and Arista Records dropped them from its roster and deleted their album and songs from their catalog,
making Girl You Know It's True the largest-selling album to ever be taken out of print. A court ruling in the
United States allowed anyone who had bought the album to receive a refund.
In the years following the collapse of Milli Vanilli, Rob Pilatus struggled with substance abuse and even suicide
attempts.On April 2, 1998, on the eve of a promotional tour for a new completed Milli Vanilli album 'Back and in
Attack', featuring Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan on lead vocals, Rob Pilatus was found dead at the age of 33 from a
suspected alcohol and prescription pill overdose in a Frankfurt hotel room. His death was ruled accidental.
and in Attack' has never been released. http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/i ... illi+death
