Could It Be Tragic: I Really Hope Robbie Williams Isn't Back In Take That

The Sun has been publishing a series of articles stating that Take That have been here in Los Angeles (why do I never know about these things!?) working on new material, supposedly with Robbie Williams.
"Robbie, 35, spent more than five hours in a Los Angeles studio on Tuesday working on songs with his ex-bandmates. It came 15 years after he quit the hit group in bitter circumstances."
Give me a break. It's more likely they were just laying down their vocals for Simon Cowell's "Everybody Hurts" Haiti charity single (which will actually be the first time all five original TT members have appeared on a song together in 15 years). Or maybe they just threw Mark on a table and took turns banging him sideways—just like the old days!

Anyway, do people really want Robbie back in Take That? Does Robbie's ego want Robbie back in Take That?

I'd slap cash on the table and say it isn't gonna happen.

    no no and emphatically no. I'm happy with Robbie and Take That as two separate entities. Anything they did together would almost certainly be a disappointment!

    I think a Take That/Robbie Williams reunion would be great - especially if it results in a marriage of their individual styles. To me, Take That was the best when they were a quintet. With this whole democratic approach to songwriting that the band has adopted since they reunited in 2006, I think this could work. And as far as Robbie Williams' ego is concerned, I don't think he suffers from that anymore. I don't think he wants the center stage as part of Take That. As he said in one of his interviews "I'd be happy being just one-fifth of a band all over again".
