Robbie Williams (born Robert Peter Williams on 13 February 1974 in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire) is a British singer.
= Main article: Take That
Williams' early pop career started with the hit boy band Take That. The band was formed in 1990 and had 8 United Kingdom Number 1 singles to their credit. Their popularity led to a succession of similar bands in the United Kingdom.
However, it has since been suggested that Williams' roguish qualities meant that he didn't fit into the band, and he frequently battled with his fellow band members and his management. After leaving the band in 1995, the final Take That album Nobody Else was re-issued in some markets excluding songs where Robbie Williams was the lead vocalist. The final Take That single "How Deep Is Your Love" is the only one that didn't feature Williams.
In November 2005, ITV1 screened a documentary on Take That, including the reasons behind Williams' departure, including interviews with Williams and his former fellow band members. Williams declined the offer to reunite with the band, but spoke to them via a pre-recorded video message.
