Bros were a British dance\pop trio that consisted of twin brothers Matt & Luke Goss (born on September 29, 1968), and Craig Logan (born on April 22, 1969) from Camberley, Surrey, England. The group formed in 1986 and managed by former Pet Shop Boys manager, Tom Watkins.

In 1987, Bros released their first single, “I Owe You Nothing” which originally peaked at #87 on the UK Singles chart, but when it was re-released a year later, the song hit the top of the UK Singles chart. When the single was released in the United States, it managed to chart at #10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart.

Their second single, “When Will I Be Famous” peaked at #2 on the UK Singles chart and when the single was released in the United States a year later, it managed to peak at #83 on the Billboard Hot 100, #10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart, and #42 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart.

In 1988, Bros released their debut album, “Push” which peaked at #2 on the UK Albums chart and #171 on the Billboard 200. The album was certified 4x Platinum in the UK. The third single, “Drop the Boy” also peaked at #2 on the UK Singles chart, staying on the charts for 10 weeks. The fifth single (after the re-release of “I Owe You Nothing”), “I Quit” peaked at #4 on the UK Singles Charts, lasting for 11 weeks on the chart.

The last single released from the album, “Cat Among the Pigeons” peaked at #2 on the UK Singles chart, lasting for only 8 weeks. During the late 80’s, Bros were a massive success in London’s emerging homosexual scene. Matt even visited a die-hard fan after he won a competition in 1988 in a small village outside of Liverpool. During that same year, Matt was voted “Mr. Gay U.K.” and again in 1990.

In 1989, Bros released the single, “Too Much” which made it to #2 on the UK Singles chart. During that same year, Craig left the group, leaving the Goss twins performing as a duo.

Also in that same year, Bros released their sophomore album, “The Time” which peaked at #4 on the UK Albums chart.

The second single from the album, “Chocolate Box” peaked at #9 on the UK Singles chart, staying on the charts for 7 weeks.

The third single, “Sister” peaked at #10 on the UK Singles chart, which stayed on the charts for 6 weeks. The song was about Matt and Luke’s sister, Carolyn, who was killed in a car accident caused by a drunk driver in London in 1989.

The last single from the album, “Madly in Love” peaked at #14 on the UK Singles chart, staying on the charts for 4 weeks.

In 1991, Bros released their last album, “Changing Faces” which peaked at #18 on the UK Albums chart.

The first single from the album, “Are You Mine” peaked at #12 on the UK Singles chart, lasting for 5 weeks on the chart. The last single from the album, “Try” peaked at #27 on the UK Singles chart for 4 weeks. After that, Bros had disbanded.

Matt Goss started a solo career, having 4 singles that made the UK Singles chart. He released 4 albums, his recent one, “Gossy” was released in 1999. He recorded a duet with Five Star’s Denise Pearson called “This Pain,” but the single never received commercial release. He was one of the chefs on the UK version of Gordon Ramsay’s “Hell’s Kitchen.”

Matt has also written two books: “More Than You Know: The Autobiography” in 2005 and a children’s book called, “Bear Crimbo” in 2010. Today, Matt performs at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and in 2011, he was featured in a Yorkshire Tea commercial.

Luke Goss moved to the United States and became an actor. He starred in movies such as “Blade II” and “Hellboy II: The Golden Army.” He married Shirley Lewis in 1994 and has one child.

After Craig Logan left Bros, he focused on songwriting and producing music.  He even earned a nomination for a Ivor Novello award for Kim Appleby’s hit single, “Don’t Worry.” At the age of 25, Craig joined EMI Music and became the vice-president of International. He worked with Robbie Williams, Tina Turner, and Garth Brooks during that time.

Craig worked as a artist manager and worked with other artists such as Joe Cocker, Pink, M People, and Sade.  Today, Craig works at Sony Music in the UK as the managing director of the RCA Label Group.
