Take That (minus Robbie) To Record New Album
British mega-boy band Take That (imagine NSync times the Backstreet Boys and you start to approach their UK popularity) are going to record a new album after the lads cleaned up on a reunion tour. All the members will contribute songs and while Robbie Williams will be missed, it was Gary Barlow who penned their breakthrough US single, "Back For Good." That broke the band in the US in '95, just as they were splitting up after years of massive success in the UK. I understand Robbie not wanting to join up full time, but he could have contributed a song to the album as well as sing and joined them at their final UK show or some such thing. Why ignore the group that got you where you are?
