Robbie Williams failed to crack America because he lacks the drive, according to eighties superstar NICK RHODES.

Rhodes, whose band DURAN DURAN successfully made the transition from Britain to the US, insists Williams has the talent to make it big stateside - but suggests he may have not been committed enough during his attempt to impress American audiences.

The RIO hitmaker says, "I like Robbie very much, I don't know why he hasn't broken America yet. Maybe he hasn't put in enough work over there."
