Is Robbie Williams really back for good? And further more do we want him? These were the questions I asked myself when I heard Robbie was to rejoin Take That. Robbie - who sensationally quit the group 14 years ago – has settled his differences with lead singer Gary Barlow and the rest of the band want him back. He told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “Let’s see what happens, but my head’s in the right place, so the timing could be right if Gary calls. I think it would be fun. It would be good. I’m in regular contact with them, even Gary, so it’s looking more likely by the week. The lads seem up for it and some people think it’s a done deal.” Robbie is keen for the reunion to happen in the near future, saying: “It would make sense for it to happen some time over the next year.” Robbie left Take That in the summer of 1995 and while the band initially carried on as a four-piece, they split the following year. I don’t wish to be cynical, but isn’t it funny that at about the same time Robbie’s solo career is none existent,  he suddenly decides that rejoining the hugely successful Take That may not be such a bad idea…Hmm funny that.

Pete Doherty

Pete Doherty

Would this not be the ultimate car crash TV? And further more would anyone actually be able to show it? Apparently Pete Doherty is writing a TV series about his “hellraising” life. The Babyshambles frontman met with BBC bosses on Tuesday (24.03.09) who asked him to pen a drama about the scandalous secrets behind his rock and roll life. A source said: “Pete was meeting creative chiefs. They’ve commissioned him to write a show about the dark side of the music industry. They want a pilot episode written in the next six weeks. It will become a series if he does a good job. BBC bosses think Pete has a creative streak that will produce gritty TV. He’s seen it all as a hellraising rock star so they want his experiences written in.” I think maybe the BBC might re-think their plans when they hear what Pete has to say, he isn’t really the shy retiring wallflower type.
