Robbie Williams - 'Candy'

Robbie Williams - 'Candy'

Robbie once nicked Mel C’s jibe at Liam Gallagher (“ Comm ’n have a gor if yer think your ’ard enough ”) for ‘Millennium’. Similarly, he’s used “ ner ner ner ner ner ” from ‘Ring A Ring O’ Roses’ and ‘I’m The King Of...

Album review: Robbie Williams - 'Reality Killed...

"Don’t call it a comeback, look what I invented here”. Yes, let’s look. How fitting that Williams made, as the showbiz fairytale script puts it, ‘his triumphant return’ on The X Factor , since he was the original ‘anyone can do...

Live Reviews: Robbie Williams

Live Reviews: Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams is a bit choked up. Stumbling over his words, he announces, “This was me auntie’s favourite song. And I’m sure she’s looking down on us…” Everyone in the packed and dangerously over-excited Roundhouse falls into...

Robbie Williams: Rudebox

Robbie Williams: Rudebox

With his Take That past coming back to haunt him, tabloids sharpening their knives and missed appearances, clearly all is not well with Williams. And yet he has claimed that this is the first musical venture where he is being himself. The stakes...

Williams, Robbie : Feel

Robbie Williams : Swing When You're Winning

Even pop idols have pop idols. For all his antic capering and moth-to-flame fondness for farce, there's always been a suspicion that Robbie Williams would very much like to be taken seriously. With this collection of Rat Pack standards, culled...

Williams, Robbie :  London Royal Albert Hall

Williams, Robbie : London Royal Albert Hall

This isn't rock'n'roll. Or even a normal Robbie Williams gig. NME is in the Albert Hall, cut almost in two by an ill-fitting tuxedo. The price on our ticket is a disgraceful #175. Two enormous, illuminated letters, 'R' and 'W', flank a black...
