Michael Marshall, also known and credited as Mike Marshall and Mike Meezy, was the lead singer of the 1980s R&B group Timex Social Club. In 1986, he had taken an offer to join Run DMC's Raising Hell Tour, before he left the group. He was often confused as the lead singer of Club Nouveau when in fact, Marshall never sang with that group. Timex Social Club's hit "Rumors" was erroneously placed on the greatest hits album of Club Nouveau and caused confusion.[citation needed] In the 1990s, Marshall worked with the group called Mo'fessionals and made a few songs with them. In 1995, he did a feature for rap group Luniz and sang the chorus on their hit "I Got 5 On It", which samples Club Nouveau's "Why You Treat Me So Bad" (1987), thus added confusion to his involvement with Club Nouveau. Marshall is the only currently active member of the Timex Social Club. He completed the album K.I.M. with rapper Equipto in 2004. He also had an international top 10 dance hit, "Your Body", with DJ Tom Novy in 2005. He released a solo album, Love, Lies & Life with the hit song "So Young" featuring San Quinn in 2006. In 2008, Psychopathic Records sub-label Hatchet House released the Tunnel Runners compilation featuring Marshall alongside Bay Area horrorcore rap artist Mars on the song "They Watchin Me". The compilation entered the Top 25 rap albums on Billboard in its first week. Marshall now lives in Northern California and has completed his second solo R&B album, Soul Of The Bay.
