Robbie Williams has revealed that he was drunk when he shot his debut video.
He also admitted that he was miming to George Michael’s version of Freedom when he filmed the video for his debut single- a cover version of the former ‘Wham!’ star’s solo hit.
‘Basically, the video to Freedom, I did all the lip-synching to George Michael’s version because I hadn’t recorded my version yet. And also I was in a bad, bad, way, I was pre rehab and I’d just finished off the top draw of the mini-bar, the whole top draw, all the liqueurs and spirits, and then started the video,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
He confessed that recording a cover version was not the best start to his solo career and the release of ‘Angels’ let the record company stuck by him changing his history forever.
The song only made it to number four on the singles chart when it was released but has become a massive worldwide hit and one of the singer’s best-loved songs.
