British pop star Robbie Williams refused to join the Take That reunion tour earlier this year (APR06) because he feared a backlash from fans still angry about his painful departure from the boy band in 1995 And Take That frontman GARY BARLOW was glad that Williams didn't return to the fold because he is now too big a star to have bandmates He says, "Robbie felt respectful enough to say, 'Those people have come to see you - they're not gonna wanna see me,' which is not true They would've wanted to see him "I never expected him to come on stage I wondered myself if it would've been right When you're in a band it's not about any individual, it's about Take That "
