OTD April 2 - Milli Vanilli
6 / 44
Arista Records

1998: Rob Pilatus (left), one half of the pop music duo Milli Vanilli, is found dead at the age of 33 from a suspected alcohol and prescription pill overdose in a Frankfurt, Germany, hotel room. His death was later ruled accidental. Pilatus, along with Fabrice Morvan (right), achieved international success as Milli Vanilli with their 1989 debut album "Girl You Know It's True," winning a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. However, their success was short lived and their Grammy was revoked after it was revealed in 1990 that neither had sung lead vocals on their record and that they lip-synched when performing in concert.
