SHORT TAKES : He's Out of Milli Vanilli Shadow

December 28, 1990|From Times Wire Services

ANDERSON, S.C. — John Davis, one of the real voices behind the Milli Vanilli pop music facade, says he is finally getting some recognition.

"Everywhere I go now, when I'm getting on a plane, people wave and say, 'There goes the Milli Vanilli guy,' " Davis said during a holiday visit to his parents' home here.

Davis, 36, gained attention when German record producer Frank Farian acknowledged that Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan had not not sung a note on Milli Vanilli's hit album, "Girl You Know It's True."

The voices recorded were those of Charles Shaw, Brad Howell and Davis, a 1972 graduate of Westside High School in Anderson.
