Robbie Williams On ATS
Who is Robbie Williams?
Robbie Williams is a highly popular and successful English singer-songwriter.
Wikipedia: Robbie Williams
Is Robbie Williams really on ATS?
Yes. His ATS member name is chrisonabike
. His identity has been verified by a site
administrator and he has provided photographic evidence. (source)
Should I send Robbie private messages via U2U?
The site administrators have disabled U2Us to his account.
Has Robbie had problems posting on discussion boards?
Please respect his rights as an ATS member and act
Should I ask Robbie off-topic questions?
Off-topic questions also violate the relevant content
provisions of the AboveTopSecret.com Terms And Conditions Of Use
subject to deletion.
But I really need to talk to him about something! What should I do?
As long as it's on-topic, you're welcome to discuss it with him in the relevant thread. Here are some other threads available for
non-sighting-related Robbie Williams discussion:
BTS: "Robbie Williams' - Greetings, Thank you's, Questions, Comments,
BTS: Robbie Williams Music
Stalking or harassment of any ATS member (not just Robbie) is strictly prohibited and may result in immediate account termination, so please be
considerate of Robbie's status as an ATSer. (source)
Should I read the thread before posting to it?
Yes. The thread is being cluttered by massive numbers of posts asking the same questions over and over. As a general courtesy to Robbie, fellow ATSers
and all the guests reading the thread, please review the thread before posting. If you start a post with "I haven't read the thread, but..." it
will probably be deleted.
Should I argue with the staff if my post is deleted?
No. We've made it clear enough what's going on. This would be a particularly bad time to harass the moderators, circumvent staff action or otherwise
interfere with the operation of the site. (source)
Should I post insults directed at Robbie Williams?
No. While it is not unusual for members to express coarse opinions about public figures, including musicians, all ATSers must be treated with courtesy
and respect. (source)
Is Robbie Williams receiving special treatment on ATS as a celebrity?
Yes. This is because he receives special treatment from other members
as a celebrity and has also attracted a great deal of outside attention
to ATS. As a consequence, it is necessary for the staff to take measures to minimize the kinds of problems which result. However, Robbie is expected
to honor the T&C
like anyone else, and I hope everyone will help him feel at
home in our community.
Can I see just the posts made by Robbie?
Yes. You may click the "posts" button under any of his posts, access them on his profile
or click this convenient link: Robbie's
Are any of Robbie's friends also on ATS?
Yes. The following members are friends of Robbie and witnesses to the sightings:
Was Robbie under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the sightings?
No. He has been sober for eight years. (source)
Robbie Williams, UFOs And Unusual Experiences
Has Robbie had any previous UFO encounters?
Has Robbie had any previous supernatural experiences?
Sighting: Sunset Strip
Where did it happen?
The yard of a hotel, facing the Sunset Strip (West Hollywood, California, USA)
When did it happen?
About 11:30PM. (source)
An object flew over at a height of about 200-300 feet. (source)
What did the object look like?
It was square or triangular, black with yellow stripes underneath. It made absolutely no noise whatsoever.
The stripes were "chevronesque". (source)
Who saw it?
Robbie and a friend. Robbie had a hunch it was "one of ours". (source)
Sighting: San Fernando Valley
Where did it happen?
Robbie's house, San Fernando Valley, California, USA (source)
When did it happen?
Friday night about five months ago, from prior to 10:00PM to about 2:30AM, beginning while Robbie and some friends were playing a song called
"Arizona" on the balcony. (source)
Update: November 2007. (source)
The Ball of Light
During the song, a big ball of light appeared over the San Fernando Valley, then disappeared when the song stopped. It reappeared when they resumed
playing the song, and disappeared when they stopped. This happened four times.
The Lightning Strike
While the band was observing this, an electrical storm came in and the balcony was struck by lightning. One of Robbie's friends saw the ball of light
fly straight up and out of sight. (source)
The Black Beam
After the band came inside to the studio, everyone saw a black strip of light a few inches thick come through the studio door and go out through the
opposing studio window, a distance of about 20 feet. (source)
Then four white lights (like spotlights) appeared in the clouds, two in front of the house and two a few miles behind it.
They moved in patterns that made the San Fernando Valley look like some sort of cosmic checkerboard and danced around a 40 mile radius.
They may well have been searchlights, but the second wave (2-3:00AM) were very late at night for searchlights and haven't been seen since.
Who saw it?
Robbie and friends. There were five people altogether. (source)
There has been much discussion in the thread about the possibility that solfeggio frequencies played during the song "Arizona" may have somehow been
a causative factor in this event (first mentioned here
However, it should be noted that "solfeggio" or "solfège" actually refers to the use of special names to teach standard musical scales:
. The common usage for the term does not necessarily imply specific frequencies.
There are some theories surrounding certain audio frequencies also referred to as "solfeggio" which suggest they may have special powers.
Has Robbie spoken to anyone else who had seen the lights aside from the friends who were present?
(Obviously this is still very rough and incomplete, but if anyone has any frequently-asked questions or question/answer pairs to offer, please post
them in this thread. Note that if you have a question that hasn't already been asked, by all means don't hesitate to ask it in the main thread, but
please check the thread first (not just this FAQ) to make sure it's not a duplicate first.)
