Good 'Times' With Take That

England's Times Online has a pretty groovy interview with Take That. It was conducted while the foursome were in L.A. shooting the video for "Greatest Day"—the single cover art for which has now been unveiled (below)—and mixing new album The Circus.

Much of the piece retreads the territory covered in Gary Barlow's book My Take. But here are a few new classy quotes from the gents:

GARY: “I just can’t control myself around food, if I’m honest. Anything fatty or high-calorie is out. Mine is definitely a future without fries. In the studio, while making the album, the others would be dialling out late at night for burgers and chocolate while I’d be there with my tuna salad and protein bar thinking, ‘This is shit!’ I mean, look how thin they are. It isn’t fair."

JASON ORANGE: "To be honest, I think fame is shit. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. I know it’s a huge aspiration for a lot of young people these days, but really I can’t think of one redeeming feature it has other than that of a quick ego caress or being able to jump the queue at a club. Otherwise, it sucks."

MARK OWEN: “It would be bloody brilliant if [Robbie Williams] came back some day. There’s nothing missing without him in a musical sense, but still it would be so great. I think we’d all have Rob back tomorrow if he wanted it and the time felt right."

    That quote about Robbie is pretty amazing. Unless they're really serious about "the Circus". Robbie's a freakshow all unto himself. A fun freakshow, but still...

    Those comments just make me love them even more--well, OK, let's be honest, mainly Gary's, but it all goes towards me liking the group.

    Je t'adore. I kind of don't want Robbie back. I think they are doing just fine without him. I mean i get it would be amazing, but more for a one off concert than an ongoing event. I like my Robbie solo and increasingly mental.

    I like how that top pic disguises the fact that Marky is from Lilliput.
