Memorable quote: “The press was quite useful. I could read afterwards what I’d done but forgot about because of the drugs and booze.”
Robbie Williams achieved fame as a member of the British boy band Take That. At the peak of their success, he quit to continue on his own. It only took him two years to break through in Europe. Songs like Angels, Feel and Let Me Entertain You will be named in music history forever. The course of Robbie’s life illustrates that money and fame do not guarantee happiness. Besides his always sold-out world tours and the millions of albums he’s sold, the singer has also become notorious for drug, alcohol and antidepressant addictions.
