Robbie Williams Misses Rebellious Spirit In Music: "There's A Lot Of Apathy"

29 April 2013, 15:45

The 'Different' singer says he misses the period of music where people were rebelling against things.

Robbie Williams has lamented the lack of "rebellious" spirit in music right now, and says there hasn't been that sort of feeling since bands like Oasis were in their prime.

The 'Candy' singer says he is surprised there isn't more music with a message of "something to rebel against", with everything going on in the world right now in terms of current affairs.

"There has not been that same spirit ever since, I don't think," Robbie told The Sun this past week. "Once you'd go from mod to new romantic to punk, and then rave, and then guitar, and then… nothing. 

"There used to be something to rebel against," he recalled. "I think there is plenty to rebel against right now, especially with what is happening in the world, with how people are being treated by governments and the recession. 

"Normally this is the time of great upheaval and great voids that rise and same, 'No we are not f*****g having this'," he explained.

"Not that I'm doing anything about it, I'm in a mansion in Los Angeles. What do I know?" Robbie added. "But there seems too be a great apathy."

The 'Different' star is widely rumoured to be working on a swing album as a follow-up to his 2012 record 'Take The Crown', but has denied claims he is set to record a collaboration with Adele.

Robbie Williams is one of the many big name artists set to perform live at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 with Vodafone this June (9th ) at Wembley Stadium.
