The follow-up English single Nobody was not as successful, and did not enter the English charts, although it featured on the UK MTV Hits music channel. Their follow-up track in German, Take My Heart, was certified "gold" in Germany. Their third album See My Life, was the duo's last album before their split in 2003. Guy Gross went on to release an EP in 2005 called Nothing to Lose aka Nichts zu Verlieren. (en)
  • Band Ohne Namen (Band Zonder Naam, ook bekend als B.O.N.) is een voormalig Duitse popgroep, opgericht door Guy Cross en Claus Capek in 1999. Ze braken door in 2000 met hun nummer Boys. Deze was oorspronkelijk in het Duits, met een Engels refrein. Ze braken pas door toen het hele nummer was vertaald in het Engels. Hun volgende nummer, B.O.N. in the USA, was een Engelse vertaling van hun nummer No. 1. Alhoewel hun Engelse nummer Nobody werd niet zo beroemd als hun voorgaande nummers, kreeg hun Duitse nummer Take My Heart de status "goud" in Duitsland. Hun derde album, See My Life, was het laatste voordat de bandleden uit elkaar gingen in 2003. (nl)
