As with a certain yeast extract paste, Bros were a band you either loved or hated, and the British teen pop boy band were, undoubtedly, more popular with teenage girls.
For a short while in the late 80s and early 90s, Bros answered the question posed in their first hit single "When Will I Be Famous?", and achieved success with eleven Top 40 hit singles in their home country and also in many European countries, too.
Originally, the boy band consisted of three members; brothers Matt Goss (vocals) and Luke Goss (drummer) and Craig Logan (bass player) who left the band in the early part of 1989.

Changing Faces (1991)
Released on 30th Sept 1991, sales of the duo's third album were very disappointing, with the album only reaching No.18 in the UK, and not even achieving a silver certificate. Lead single "Are You Mine" was moderately successful, reachign No.12, but the follow-up single "Try" stalled at No.27.
After the poor sales, Luke looked at his brother and stated "I'm done, it's not fun anymore". The duo split in 1992.
Matt goss started a solo career during the 90s, and his brother Luke moved to the US and became a movie actor. Craig is currently working in music management and songwriting.
