Right Said Fred is considered a duo? In their only American hit song's video, there were three guys. The two bald brothers plus that creepy looking guitar player with a white man jheri curl.

Right Said Fred originally started out as a duo of the Fairbrass brothers and they soon added Rob Manzoli to make them a trio.

Soon after the 1996 release of their 3rd album, "Smashing ", Rob Manzoli :afro: (the one with the hair) left, and the Fairbrass brothers carried on as a duo again.
