One of my favorite musician quotes

robbie williamsBy way of popdirt:

Robbie Williams (pictured) says he's still embarrassed about a drugged-out chat he had with U2 frontman Bono a while back.

"I was at this party and completely and totally off my face -- mushrooms, Ecstasy ... And I was staring at this painting for ages," Williams tells Stuff magazine.

"I was just mesmerized by it. And Bono comes up and asks, 'Robbie, what are you doing?' And I said, 'Bono, man, this [bleeping] painting is incredible.'

And he went, 'Robbie, that’s the window.'"

Who is Robbie Williams?

Robbie Williams & Bono?.....surprised it wasn't a mirror.

Who is Robbie Williams? Its been so long since we all adored him Whats happening is he ever going to perform again or given his life over to drugs and parties What a waste of exceptional talent

I have to agree with Pat. What a waste. Robbie coulda been a contenda. I thought he cleaned up his act a few years ago. Too bad. His "Sing When You're Winning" album was incredible.

Pretty fantastic quote. And Robbie Williams is basically fantastic. I would also include the quote from Neil Gallagher after he was kicked off a jetliner for drunkenly flashing an airline attendent (or something like that). He was stumbling across the tarmac when a reporter approached him and asked about how he felt about getting kicked off the plane.

"I'd rather walk!" he screamed.
