"Intensive (Hair) Care"
The English Singer recorded his intensive care album together with his new song writer Stephen Duffy (ex-Duran Duran member) in his house in Los Angeles.
The intensive care album gives us the impression that Robbie Williams was inspired by former songs sang by Pop Icon David Bowie. The single "Tripping" is more reggae/ ska orientated.
Robbie's "Hairstyle Spy"
Robbie's devoted hair style idol is David Beckham.
In one of the chapters of his published biography "Feel" he confesses that he contracted some people with only one task: to tell him every detail about Beckham's (new) hair style(s).
At the moment Robert Peter Maximilian Williams is wearing his hair "normal" length.
Note: The accused from heroin use Kate Moss got support by Robbie who is accusing the media of hypocrisy. He said: "I have personally taken cocaine with the people who aree now writing these stories" (source: TimesOnline).
Robbie helps Africa
Bob Geldof (initiator "Live aid") convinced Robbie to sing at the charity event "Live 8". Together with U2, Madonna, Elton John, Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd he performed for free.
Other Live 8 concerts took place in Paris (Castle of Versailles), Rome (Le Cirque Maximus), Philadelphia (Museum of art) and in Barrie (Park Place). Besides that Bob also planned concerts in Johannesburg, Tokio and Toronto.
The concerts should raise awareness of global poverty and pressure the G8, the world's wealthiest countries, to contribute resources to end poverty.
Robbie might be following up "Freddie"
Robbie Williams might follow in the deceased Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's footsteps (photo right). The actual Queen's drummer and co-founder of the successful quartet Roger Taylor wants to convince Robbie to be the band's new lead singer.
Wether Robbie will have to grow his hair, just like Freddie, is still unknown.
