About Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams was raised by his mother along with his sister, after his parents divorced when he was 3 years old. At school he earned a reputation as “a class clown” and failed miserably on his graded work. He later told The Observer that he was “shockingly failed by the education system” and went to work as a salesman. Always interested in music, after his mother found an advertisement for singers to audition for a boy band, Williams stunned all with his incredible vocal skills and was signed to the boy band Take That in 1990.

The band that came out of Manchester, UK was a response to the success of American boy band New Kids On the Block.
