Not like he’ll ever be reading my blog, but on the off chance he happens to search google one day and be led here..
I was in some ways quite sad to see you go to rehab – depending on what you read, it’s either for prescription drugs or depression – but on the other hand hope that someone in the rehab you are going to might have the magic words to say that will help you be the Robbie you really want to be but more importantly the Robbie we the fans want you to be. So probably you’re asking yourself, who is the Robbie the fans want you to be?
What I (and most fans I know) want for you more than anything else in the world is for you to be happy. You’ve made a lot of us happy over the years, and it’s been a lot of years however from what I have seen, it hasn’t made *you* happy. You have spent half your life singing and performing but you don’t enjoy doing it! So I think you need to go do something that does make you happy. I’m sure you’ve got money enough that you never have to work again, if you don’t want to.
I wish I had the magic words but even if I did I wouldn’t have a chance to say them to you. So I guess what I’d like to say is thank you for music, and regardless of what you think of yourself or what you think other people think of yourself, I think you’re a good bloke.
