- Robbie Williams
In his defence this a Trevor Horn thing rather than a Robbie thing.

He’s a truly awful singer. I was round my brother’s once and there was this horrendous sound coming out of their speakers.. like, a really offensively bad cover of a Frank Sinatra song. It offended my ears so much I had to ask what it was. (Sorry, I really could rant for hours about this bloke!)Posted 8 months ago
Sis-in-law says its the swing covers album Williams did. I can’t for the life of me fathom out wh anyone would listen to that when you could listen to Frank, or any of the others and hear a really gorgeous voice singing the songs (I’m going on a bit aren’t I) . Then there was that time I was in a shop and this song came on with the ner-ner-na-ner-ner (think child wagging fingers with their thumbs in their ears) melody. WTF? I had to leave the shop it was soooo bad!
Trevor Horn has gone way down in my estimations (I’m sure he’s gutted). What a bastard inflicting this shite on the world. (I’ve finished now)
he’s just a money making shit machine.
I hear he has some very nice stuff to say about you as well.
It’s quite cute that you get so angry about mainstream pop stars at your age Dez.
FWIW he stole the show at Live 8 (only time I saw him), but it didn’t make me wanna join the fanclub or buy his swing albums.Posted 8 months agowrightysonMember
Thanks. I’m interested in music and care about it. Has ****-all to do with age.
To be fair dez you are usually down with watching some one eyed pirate who’s got his dog on bass and his mother in law on lead which in itself is fine by me, I remember seeing slaves for the first time and thinking wtf, I’m sure you had mentioned them somewhere in the past and after several more times seeing them I “get them” so you were never going to be a fan of Mr williams.Posted 8 months ago
You quite often berate people for going to a gig of over 27 people also, I get a buzz from a big crowd and was there when Mr Williams played knebworth, he was to be fair in his prime back then and it must be 10 years since I’ve paid any interest in him.
Calling him what you did seems a tad harsh.

It offends all my sensibilities but not as much as the cover of FrankieGTH’s “power Of love” I heard butchered before Christmas.
Maybe this is Trevor Horn’s revenge for whoever did that? It’s hard to believe that the producer of Two Tribes and the Lexicon of Love can turn out dross like this.Posted 8 months agoGunzMember
For a bit of balance, I have a good friend who has worked with him on tour and he says RW is one of the nicest, most genuine people in the business (although he accepts that his drug years weren’t his finest). Out of all the major stars my friend works with, RW is the only one who flies the whole crew Business Class and pays for the difference out his own pocket (I except this has no bearing on the quality of his music).Posted 8 months agoBig-BudMember
Robbie Williams has always had a likeability factor but that’s wained recently along with his music .
He made one vital cock up
Early after leaving take that he was riding a crest of a wave
Not been able to write or read music without Gary Barlow he was relying on those few people out there who write but don’t like to perform them or them all he hadd the mighty music genius guy chambers behind him ,like he has the talent to write angels lol .
They worked together hit after hit until the big 92 million 5 album deal with Sony when upto that point had been a 50/50 split with Robbie and guy .
Robbie wanted to pay guy 1million per album .
They haven’t worked together since and Robbie fobbed off Sony with a best of album a swing album and similar dross.
Guy since had several No1,hits with songs originally written for RobbiePosted 8 months ago

Sorry for any grammar hiccups written whilst crossing the Chanel
