Robbie Williams had a good 2012 with his single and album going the top of the charts and now Robbie has spoken out about his musical inspirations. The Candy Singer owes it All to the track 'Summer Nights' from the John Travolta and Olivia Newton John starring movie of the musical from 1978 that inspired him to pursue his career in music. He told Q magazine: 'My first three years were spent in a pub - and 'Summer Nights' was on the jukebox. That was the first record that showed me I had a future in performance - because the punters would put the money in and I'd mime to the record. I'd do the whole bit.' He Also admitted he went through a phase wanting to a teddy boy which was a british movement of the 50's 'I wanted to be a Teddy Boy. I didn't get very far. I really wanted the full three-quarter length Teddy Boy jacket but my mum wouldn't get me one.'There was a time I had a parka jacket. I was at the very tail-end of mod.'
