Pop posers Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan of Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy because they synched when they should have sung. Now they face a $120 million lawsuit for allegedly stealing music from the 1960s-era band Blood, Sweat and Tears.
Singer David Clayton-Thomas said in court papers filed Thursday that the melody of "Spinning Wheel," which he wrote in 1968, was used without his permission on the Milli Vanilli album, "Girl You Know It's True."At at news conference in Manhattan, Marcus played tapes of "Spinning Wheel" and the Milli Vanilli song "All or Nothing." The lawyer said the melody lines of the choruses are identical.
The Milli Vanilli record does not credit Clayton-Thomas.
