Milli vanilli - blame it on the rain - Milli Vanilli Discography at Discogs

Run up to any '80s or '90s baby and say, "New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits," and we guarantee they'll respond with, "Chinese food makes me sick!" For those of you who are still trying to figure out what NKOTB has to do with Asian cuisine, these lyrics are actually the chorus of the uber-popular 1999 hit "Summer Girls" by the boy band LFO.

And, perhaps, as an immigrant, Pilatus had too much pride to allow him to understand that America might be more forgiving - if not embracing - if he appeared to be in on the joke. Especially now, with '80s nostalgia in vogue and public figures being forgiven for far grosser crimes, the time might have seemed right to crack a smile and cash in. But Pilatus still hoped to be taken seriously. Says VH1's Gay Rosenthal, who executive-produced the Behind The Music special, "When we had the cameras and he had his little entourage, shooting him on the beach, you could tell that's what he loved; he needed that attention. He was in great shape, working out every day. But inside, he was the opposite. For someone who looked so strong, Rob was a very, very fragile person."

"And I regret it really, because we only had two gigs left. If I had my time again I would have gone back and done the gigs -- that gig would have been dreadful because he was out of his mind -- I would have done that gig and done the next gig and we would have all gone away and we could have probably discussed what we were going to do. We may never have split up, we may have just taken a hiatus and we could have all gone and done our things. Liam always said he would bring down armageddon in the end, thats the way he kind of likes things to be. And there you go. And it's a shame, because I was comfortable in that band. I perfected that role of that guy who just stood on the right who played the lead guitar and sang backing vocals and sang the occasional, it took me 18 years and I was brilliant at that... at the end of the day, he doesn't like me. He doesn't like me in a violent way. I don't get on with him, but he kind of takes it to a level of, for me, there's no point in being in a band with people you fight with. What's the point? Just go on to do more tours and make more f*cking money, it's just always the arguing about nonsense. I did everyone a favor when I left."
