Milli Vanilli's Fab Morvan Makes Comeback With New Group
Milli Vanilli's Fab Morvan is making a career comeback with his new group SMFM.
Morvan, now 44, is the surviving member of Milli Vanilli which rose to fame as a boy group in the 1980's. Their most popular song was Girl, You Know It's True. Sporting long hair and tight pants, the duo, composed of Morvan and Rob Pilatus, sold 7 million copies of their debut album and won a Grammy in 1990. The award was stripped away when it was revealed the pair lip-synched most of their song live and on the album.
"We never went into this project knowingly that we were not going to sing," Morvan told Australia's Channel 9 News recently. "We had the youth, we had the drive, we had the talent but the producer already had something built, he built this trap and we just fell into the trap. You just go with the flow and you have no choice. They have the power."
Pilatus died of a drug overdose in 1998. Now, Morvan says he is back to his first love, music performing with DJ Sean McCaff as part of an Electronica duo SMFM which combines their initials and stands for Supplying Mirages For Mankind.
I always said to myself, whenever this happens, I'm going to have to take the pieces put them back together and move forward," he added. "You only have so many chances to do your thing. You have to make sure all your ducks are lined up properly and they are right now. Life is made of ups and downs and it's up to you to be as strong as possible. It's all about the dreams. Be happy in the meantime."
