Alan McGee hates fat dancer Robbie Williams

LONDON - Robbie Williams was once dismissed as the "fat dancer from Take That" by Oasis's Noel Gallagher.
He chalked up a string of hits as a member of Take That, but after a lost weekend with Oasis's Gallagher brothers, he quit the group and embarked on a solo career. He battled personal demons - drink and drugs - along the way and often said success had not necessarily led to happiness. In 2009, he shared a stage with his old friends for a Children In Need concert.
Here's an older post by Alan:

Robbie Williams is not a "British hero", as a BBC-sponsored vote once incredibly claimed. He's not even an "all-round entertainer". As Noel Gallagher famously said, he's an all round crap dancer who can't sing too well either. He truly is the new Cliff Richard for our generation, and who in their right mind wants one of them?
He was rubbish in Take That, and they were an atrocity of a band - God help us now they're back. Yet solo, he's even worse than they are! No wonder the Yanks don't want him no matter how much money the CEO of EMI throws at it. They were almost giving the last CD away for free in the States and still nobody bought one.
I actually despair when people who know about music credit him with substance, or mention him in the same breath as Michael Jackson or Elton John. These people are brilliant, world class musical talents. Robbie's just a showbiz chancer. I remember him hanging around the Oasis caravan at Glastonbury in 1995. Unfortunately, he never really went away after that in our lives.
To me, Robbie Williams is a crime against music. It's people like him who are destroying British pop culture. He has 1% of Mick Jagger's talent. He's the post-9/11 feelgood factor. He doesn't mean anything - he's utterly vacant. If Robbie Williams is what sells then give me any unsigned band in a garage any day of the week. At least they'll love music. Robbie Williams is music for people who don't feel - or the payment on the mortgage, if you work for EMI.
