Bad Timing

I was working in clubs and Top40 radio when Milli Vanilli rose, conquered…

…and slinked a way in a cloud of shame when it became known that they hadn’t sung their album, and had lip-synched their “live” performances.

And it was about this time thirty years ago that the “scandal” blew up, wrecking the careers of most everyone involved…

…and about 3-5 years before it became pretty clear that it was more the rule than the exception in top-40 pop music, and probably ten years before technology started doing the things that Milli Vanilli’s producer had to get humans to do.

Just saying – had Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan come along ten years later, they’d still be megastars.
