Mercury Music Prize nominee Richard Hawley has no regrets over snubbing Robbie Williams' offer of songwriting work, insisting the move would have been a step backwards. The COLES CORNER rocker admits joining Williams' pop star world would be lucrative, but he insists his integrity comes first. He says, "It's a different world all that. "It would have been like winning the lottery. But it would also have been like taking whatever scant wisdom I've developed in this short life and throwing it away."
