Real Name: Robert Peter Maximillian Williams
Height: 6' 1"
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Blue / Green
Born: February 13, 1974 in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
Discovered: Robbie's early pop career started with the hit boy band Take That. The band was formed in 1990 and succeeded with 8 UK Number 1 singles to their credit. However, Robbie's 'roguish' qualities meant that he didn't fit into the band, and he frequently battled with his fellow band members and his management. He left the band in 1995.
After leaving Take That, Robbie immersed himself in the rock & roll lifestyle. This included an infamous appearance during Oasis's headlining set at Glastonbury in 1995. This led to a highly publicised battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
By 1996 Robbie was ready to launch his solo career after time in a drug rehabilitation clinic. His first single, "Freedom '90", this was followed up by "Old Before I Die" in 1997. Both singles reached number two in the UK charts and were considered successful. This led to his first solo album, Life Thru A Lens, later that year.
The next single from Life Thru A Lens was "Angels", released in December 1997. The song's popularity propelled the album to number one on the album charts, 28 weeks after the album was first released. The 'ballad'-style song is credited with single-handedly rescuing Robbie's career, and has proved to be his most popular to date, although it never reached the top of the (UK) Singles Chart.
