Insisting that they could sing their own music, Rob and Fab were signed to Kenny & Ricki Taylor's Joss Entertainment label to release their self-titled Rob & Fab album in 1993. The album featured all original songs, mostly written by Kenny Taylor and Fabrice Morvan, and a remake of Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me". Lead vocals on the album were performed by Fabrice Morvan. Unfortunately, Pilatus' unstable mental state and several suicide attempts constrained the creative abilities of the duo.
There were many references to Milli Vanilli in the album, and the cover art was designed to look like previous Milli Vanilli albums in an attempt to play off previous popularity. Fewer than 3000 Rob & Fab albums were manufactured, significantly limiting availability to most markets. The album was never released outside the US. Following the album's lacklustre popularity, Pilatus began a series of criminal acts and was arrested for assault (including one man he attacked with a metal lamp base) and vandalism, among other crimes, in Los Angeles in 1995. He was sentenced to several months in jail in 1996, and began the first of several treatments in drug rehabilitation centers.
In 1997, Milli Vanilli had a chance to tell their side of the story of their musical fiasco in the premiere episode of VH1's Behind The Music. In April, Rob & Fab signed to Farian's studio again to record a new album using their own voices. Pilatus and Morvan took voice lessons from Mario Bellefonte, lead voice instructor for the Metropolitan Opera Company. They also received training from English pronunciation experts to perfect their language skills (the singers were chastised during interviews for the Girl You Know It's True album due to their thick German accents, which were obviously absent on the album tracks recorded by the studio singers). Pilatus continued to battle drug addiction during the album's creation, and Farian paid for his drug rehabilitation.
Rob & Fab began the promotional tour for their comeback album on 3, April 1997. Exactly one year later, in 1998, and shortly before the new album's release, Pilatus was found dead from an alcohol and drug overdose in Frankfurt, Germany. He was 32.
Today, Fabrice Morvan is pursuing a solo career and released his first solo album, Love Revolution, in 2002. He also performs light alternative music in clubs throughout the U.S.
