Robbie Williams To Retire 'Angels' From Live Shows


Robbie Williams

To the shock of his fans, Robbie Williams has indicated that he’s going to stop performing his most famous song, ‘Angels’, on his upcoming tour – because it’s too hard for him to sing.

The 43 year old former Take That star is planning a new tour and, because he wants to showcase new material, is intending on pruning many of his classic hits from the setlist, starting with ‘Angels’, by far and away his most iconic song.

‘Angels’, which was an enormous hit in 1997 and is a karaoke classic and radio station staple to this day, is one of those songs that virtually everybody has attempted to sing while drunk. But that’s part of the reason why Williams is considering dropping it – because he’s struggling to maintain his cool while he sings it.

Robbie Williams Cancelled Tour Because Of "Very Worrying" Test Results


Robbie Williams

Having cancelled a section of his tour recently, Robbie Williams has revealed that he made the decision because he had received some “very worrying” test results that saw him get admitted to intensive care in hospital.

The 43 year old singer, who released his most recent album The Heavy Entertainment Show this time last year, cancelled three prestigious gigs in Russia in September at the end of his recent European tour, without offering an explanation.

Robbie Williams Is Running Out Of Songwriting Ideas

Robbie Williams is running out of ''ideas'' for new song lyrics.

The 43-year-old singer has admitted he's beginning to get frustrated with his process for putting together tracks because he's finding himself using the same lines.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: ''I'm definitely running out of ideas. I don't know how many ways I can say: 'I'm neurotic and I messed up. Or: 'I love you, love me, I'm thick.' Or: Women, I like women.'

Zayn Malik has come a long way in the five years since he hid backstage during 'X Factor' bootcamp, too afraid to dance in front of the cameras and judges. These days, the 22-year-old heartthrob is used to performing for tens of thousands of screaming fans in One Direction's sell-out arena tours.

Take That Give Advice To One Direction On How To Cope With Losing A Band Member


Take That One Direction Zayn Malik Mark Owen Gary Barlow Robbie Williams

Take That have offered some boy band-to-boy band advice to One Direction about how to carry on the aftermath of Zayn Malik’s departure, having been in the same situation themselves once upon a time.

Mark Owen was speaking to British radio station Magic FM when he was asked about the similarity of the two situations, and replied “Do you know what, one thing that we never did when Rob left us the first time is we never... You get caught up in your world and you forget sometimes... hopefully somebody's phoned Zayn and made sure he's alright, because it's, you know, it's difficult.”

Jimmy Page Defeats Robbie Williams In Building Dispute


Jimmy Page Robbie Williams

A long-running battle between musicians has finally been settled, not in the charts but through the courts. A three-month long planning row between rock star neighbours Robbie Williams and Jimmy Page was decided in favour of the Led Zeppelin guitarist.

Former Take That singer Williams has ditched plans to add a huge extension to his £17.5 million Grade II-listed London property, including excavating and building a huge two-storey basement. 71 year old Page had fiercely contested the proposal by appealing to the local council on the grounds that it would affect that foundations of his Grade I-listed home.

Robbie Williams Talks Family And Frozen


Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams is a changed man. Far from the lad about town he once was when he left Take That and embarked on a solo career and life in the sun in Los Angeles, he’s now a happily married chap and a father of two. Not only that but it seems the popstar, who started off his career as one fifth of the biggest boy band of the 1990s, has also turned a bit soppy.

Metallica To Cover 'Wonderwall' At Glastonbury, But What Are The Best Oasis Covers?


Metallica Jay Z Oasis Maroon 5 Jake Bugg Robbie Williams Keane Weezer

In a similar fashion to the announcement of Jay Z in 2008, metal titans Metallica’s headline slot at the iconic Glastonbury Festival has been met with a wave of criticism and derision from commentators who have deemed the Metallica’s headline position as both a lazy, predictable booking and one that is incompatible with Glastonbury’s demographic. However, whereas criticism towards Jay Z in the vein of what was unleashed by the Gallagher brothers was a scathing attack on hip hop as a genre, laced with a degree of barely concealed racism, Metallica’s backlash largely stems from elsewhere.

Firstly, this is a band that hasn’t produced an album of any merit for well over a decade and what’s more, considering they were announced long after tickets had sold out, how many of Glastonbury’s middle class bohemians will actually want to watch the band? Metallica have themselves responded to the criticism by announcing they may open their set with a cover of “Wonderwall”, copying Jay Z’s act of protest back in 2008. However, it does appear that Jay Z’s version carried a greater amount of symbolism, given that it was the Gallagher brothers who were the most vocal opponents of his appearance.

Mel Gibson? Actors Who 'Could' Have Been James Bond


Henry Cavill Michael Caine Daniel Craig Robbie Williams James Bond

Before Bourne, there was Bond. James Bond is a name that has become synonymous with the idea of classic British sophistication and suave. Professionally trained and with a license to kill, 007 has been played by some of the most debonair actors in the business, including Sean Connery and Roger Moore. The role has been much sought after and many an actor has been on the disappointing receiving end of a casting call - and some you wouldn’t even imagine would ever have been in the running to begin with.

michael caine james bond The Dark Knight star Michael Caine was once in the running for Bond

East End lad Michael Caine was considered for the role back in 1967. Caine had already starred in three spy movies and was concerned that if he were to play Bond, he’d have been typecast. Caine has since had a long and varied career, although he’s also become one with his Cockney twang. Can you imagine Caine ditching his accent in favour of Bond’s more upper-class drawl?
