Brian Gillis Role in LFO’s Success
Gillis was one of the people who started the band Lyte Funkie Ones, or LFO, in 1995. The band from Massachusetts got its name from the color of the people in it.
Pop-rap music was a big part of the group, which was made up of the late singer Brad Fischetti and Rich Cronin. They were able to put out singles like “(Sex U Up) The Way You Like It” and “Step by Step,” which was originally sung by New Kids on the Block.
Later, LFO moved to Florida to continue their success. Lou Pearlman was able to get them a deal with the Trans Con record label, which made them even more well-known.
Gillis later started a solo career, which brought Devin Lima into the band. Even though he left the band, they decided to keep his vocal contributions on their 1999 self-titled album. After LFO put out their second record, they broke up in 2002. At the time, the late singer kept working and was able to go on college tours.
Brizz and Other LFO Members Who P@ssed Away
Gillis wasn’t the first band member to di#. Some of his other bandmates had di#d years before. Rich Cronin di#d of a stroke in 2010, the news source said. He also had leukemia before he p@ssed away.
