It was interesting reading about the ultimatum that Robbie was given to either sh** or get off the pot so to speak , tbh I can see why , I do not think anyone realistically believe that you could depend on Robbie who changes his mind like the wind depending on the situation & the lads know that but they do not fall out over it anymore . I thought it was irresponsible of him to break the news to the journalist about Jason leaving but that's Robbie, opens his big mouth when put under pressure

Sorry to read that Gary has someone ill in the family, hope all is ok



Yes he does change his mind an awful lot which is fine when you're a solo performer but not when you have three or four other people relying on you.

Personally I don't think he will ever commit to another full album/tour with TT. I think that time has passed. I think he will just do the odd collaboration like he is doing now with them.

I think I'm happy with that. Progress was so perfect for me - it would only be spoilt by doing it all over again. It would never be as good. No point in revisiting.

Does anybody know why Eight Letters was on Progress and also on Take The Crown?

I think I prefer the Take The Crown version, I like hearing his raw voice without all that soft editing on the track.

On Progress the song is sung by Gary and I assume Rob wanted to sing it too, so he took it on Take The Crown.

I think it was because in the TT documentary RW was singing it and some people said they wanted to hear his recorded version, so he put it on TTC.

I actually prefer the Progress version with GB singing and Robbie on the last line or preferably when they sing it together. smile.gif


It's a very beautiful song. wub.gif

"Take That": At heart we are still teen stars

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen talk about the new musical "The Band" in an interview and reveal how they feel today.
Where they used to be: screech alarm! And today? Celebrate "Take That"'s 30th anniversary and want to know it again: their musical starts in Berlin, there's also a new album plus a tour.

30th anniversary and a new musical! Let's remember: "Take That" was formed in 1990 in Manchester with Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams, who was 16 at the time. Robbie left the band in 1995 - the split followed in 1996. In 2005, there was a reunion without Robbie, the 2012 while once again with "Take That" occurs, but otherwise pursued his solo career. In 2014, Jason will leave.

Currently the band consists of Gary, Howard and Mark. Robbie makes guest appearances with the band. In an interview with BILD der FRAU the three musicians of "Take That" talk about the new musical "The Band" - and what their life looks like today.

The hits of "Take That", sung and danced by five "doppelgangers", form the backdrop for a heartbreaking story: It's the year 1992, five 16-year-old girlfriends are huge fans of "The Band". As adults, their paths cross again and all forgotten teen dreams awaken ... "It's about the power of music and how it manages to revive a friendship," says successful author Tim Firth. "The Band" starts in Berlin in April, followed by the German tour in October.

Bild der Frau: In the musical, boys are on stage, performing like you did back in the 90's. What is going on in your mind?

Gary Barlow: The boys are so skinny! (Laughs) You just look too good! And they sing too well! Dreadful!

Howard Donald: When you see their energy, the friendship between them reminds us very much of us back then. The good: We are still close friends.

Do you get a bit wistful looking back?

Mark Owen: Of course it's exciting when you're 20. But even more beautiful is to be 47 today and say: Wow, I've come that far!

See a short greeting from the band to the fans. Your words in English translated: "Hello everyone, we are" Take That "and you can read our interview on PICTURE OF WOMAN."

Your musical is coming to Berlin now. What does that mean to you?

Gary: Very much. In Germany, we had our first TV appearance at the beginning of the 90s - our first ever appearance outside of England. The German fans have always remained faithful to us over the past 30 years.

Howard: My big daughter lives in Münster. That's why I also have a strong bond with Germany in my private life. And during our band break between 1996 and 2005, I worked as a DJ in German clubs. I have many friends there since then.

You worked on the musical?

Gary: Yes, of course it's about our biggest hits too. But most of all to our fans, to five girls in boygroup fever.

"Take That" about aging

Are you getting along well with aging?

Howard: I have two small children, one and two years old. I can not recommend a 50-year-old to have children (winks). If I am really tired, I would like to trade with the boys in the musical and want to be 20 again.

Mark: My body is 47, the rest 20.

Gary: We are all fathers. But in the heart still teen stars!

Do you actually listen to German music?

Howard: I especially those of Herbert Grönemeyer. And Fanta4, they also started about 30 years ago. I still remember when articles about us were written in the same "Bravo" ...

"Take That" about life today

Do you still have goals?

Gary: Just keep going. The last few years have been so nice with the tours.

Is your life better today than it was before?

Howard: Everything is better! We now have children and a family life. This is a completely new life experience. It's not always about "Take That". Now it's more about the real life.

Gary: I like the look back - on the success. And that we are still curious anyway. I'm still excited before I go on stage. But in the past we were more selfish, today we want to be good people too.

Your tour to the album "Odyssey" will start in April. Do you miss Robbie and Jason?

Mark: Yes, yes. But in the heart they are always there. We often ask ourselves: what would Jason say or Rob? And right now, in this jubilee year, we meet more often with Robbie.

The musical with the music of Take That from the 90s celebrates its German premiere on April 11 at the Stage Theater of the West in Berlin. More information can be found here .

By the way: Many interesting contributions to catchy melodies and their interpreters can be found on our topic page Schlager.
