Take That "Robbed Me", Says Jason Orange
He says his first time in the boyband left him mentally scarred…
Take Thatplaced on him the first time around.
“I think every person’s job either feeds them or takes from them,” Jason explained in an interview with The Sunday Times Culture section:
“Take That, for me, the first time, took from me. It gave me money, it gave me a standard of living, but it robbed me of my voice.
“To come back as an older adult, on my guard a bit and wiser, I know it sounds melodramatic, but it’s like there’s this thing up there, and we can all give to it and get back from it, and it shines into us, and we can all grow from it.
“Or it will just rob us again, and we’ll leave, with all this s**t that we didn’t say or didn’t do.”
"You see how many bands can't reunite after a falling out and then still do it. The when-hell-freezes-over sort of thing with the Eagles etc.
"Basically, we were all grown-ups about our sh*t, and owned it. If you own your own sh*t, you can move on. And we all did. From me and Gary having a proper chat, to then instantly falling into each other's arms and rolling about in my kitchen, laughing, was a moment in my life I will never forget."
