It’s little depressing though really, that after 60 years the 1,000th number one album is Robbie Williams pretending to be a singer from 60 years ago. And, that people have figured out Robbie Williams yet and are still buying his albums.

It's his great voice, I suppose.............

Anyway, I lost faith in the charts years ago when they started including 'downloads' in the calculations of sales figures - too easily manipulated........

I've figured him out: great singer and entertainer.

Life's simple, don't try to complicate it, it's fully capable of doing that by itself.

Entertainer I'll just about give you, but he's not a great songer or songwriter. People who like and listen to Robbie Williams are those who don't really like music, they just occasionally put on a CD in the car or when doing the hoovering.
