He's a big Wolves fan and regularly turns up to see them play - not in a private box, next door to every day fans.
He's known for living a pretty spartan life (doesn't sleep on a bed, apparently) and has made some very straightforward lifestyle choices.
I like Robert - I think he is a genuinely good guy.
He certainly comes across that way. I also sense that he's very strong minded about his music, kind of like Neil Young. He listens to what his muse tells him and if it tells him to go in a certain direction he does.
He seems to have a strong sense of himself and genuinely doesn't give a fuck what anyone thinks, but has a sense of inner decency and civility. It's a tough balancing act for an artist - selfishness and dedication to their art, yet not burning bridges and not being a dick at the same time.
