The duo’s talent and dedication were noticed by record producer Frank Farian, who offered them a recording contract and so founded the Milli Vanilli pop duo, the unusual name inspired by a local advertising slogan that he saw during his business trip in Turkey.

They released their first album called “All or Noting” in the November of 1988. The album soon ranked Gold, peaking at No. 4 on pop music charts in Germany. After the success of their first album, the band released their second studio album “Girl You Know It’s True” which hit the charts in 1989 featuring the eponymous hit single as well as three more popular tracks, “Baby Don’t Forget My Number”, “Girl I’m Gonna Miss You” and “Blame It on the Rain.”

This album reached the No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the States.  It was certified six-time platinum and also won the Grammy Award.

Fame to Success

Despite having a successful career, after Los Angeles Times journalist Chuck Philips discovered that not even a single song was sung by either Fab or Rob, the Grammy was rescinded from them four days later. Due to this, the duo moved to Los Angeles, California, and rebranded as “Rob & Fab.” In 1993, they released an eponymous studio album which despite being warmly received by the critics, was a total commercial failure due to only 2,000 copies sold.

Fab continued his work in the music industry as a session musician as well as a DJ throughout the rest of the 1990s. He has given performances at the Wango Tango music festival in 1999, and in 2002 he performed at the Hard Rock Café Hotel in Orlando, Florida.
