Here they are holding their “Best New Artist” Grammy before it was REVOKED. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]MILLI VANILLI[/lastfm] are the only act in history to have to give a Grammy back.
Milli Vanilli were a late ’80s singing duo . . . or so we THOUGHT. Turns out they didn’t actually sing their own songs . . . which included “Blame It on the Rain” and “Girl I’m Gonna Miss You”.
They tried to make a comeback using their own voices . . . but nobody cared. Pilatus fell under the spell of drugs, alcohol and petty crime . . . and in 1998, he was found dead of an overdose in a hotel room in Germany.
Long story short, there’s a movie about their story in the works. It’s got the full support of Morvan and the Pilatus estate. And that’s pretty much all we know about it now.
