The Music of Robert
This is a fan site dedicated to Rob's music.
Back on September 16, 2012, Adam Shankman
tweeted that his lucky sister-in-law (Andrea Meli) jammed with Rob and
Dermot Mulrony. Finally, video has surfaced of the jam session.
Looks like so much fun, would have LOVED to have been a fly on
Rob Pattinson's rumored main-squeeze, Kristen Stewart, was
spotted at Norman's Rare Guitars on December 23 buying Rob 2
very pricey guitars. According to Us Weekly, Kristen bought Rob
a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster and a 1947 K&F Lap Steel guitar. I bet
you were wondering what these babies looked like, so I snooped
around Norman's website and got the info for you. I noticed that
Stewie took her Dad with her - hopefully to help her negotiate a
sweet deal because she spent some serious Twi-money playing Ms.
The most amazing thing happened today.
Video of Rob singing and
playing guitar in someone's living room in London appeared
It's a new thing in London inspired by a Leonard
Cohen song and it's called Songs
from a Room. Sounds really hipster and fun! As part of the news
report, a clip of Rob singing and playing guitar for a few
seconds was shown. Here it is!
Not too much later, a YouTube version came out (thanks
TwiBritneyfan) of just Rob
singing. Here you go. Prepare to loop it.
A longer clip aired on E! News yesterday, here's the clip:
Rob's been a busy bee this year! After promoting 'Remember Me' and
'Eclipse,' then filming 'Bel Ami' and 'Water for Elephants,' I'm starting
to wonder when or if he's had time to focus any on his music. In
fact, he confirmed this to the Sun in late April, saying that a
back-to-back filming schedule has left him little time to focus
on his real love: music.
‘I always think there must be more, I get
angry because I think I'm missing out.'
He also revealed his Hollywood get-out plan is still music,
and he would really love to record more.
‘I haven't been able to do my music for ages, all my
friends are recording albums and I'm very annoyed about it,
but I can't do two things at once.'
But I guess all that time in between takes on various movie sets
have given him time to compose. At least he's said so in some
more recent interviews. He's talking about his music
a lot more these days, most recently on 7/10/10 he was quoted as
"I’m seriously thinking of doing music with my sister. It’s a project that should be done before the end of the year."
[Paris Match via
It's assumed he is talking about recording with
gorgeous sister that is a well-known singer/songwriter based in
London. This is so
exciting to me and DARN if I had heard of this news earlier I
would have asked
when I met her 6/23/10 in LA after a Sam Bradley concert.
In another recent interview with
thedirt.com.au (during the Eclipse press junket),
Rob was asked about the rumors of him wanting to be a rapper.
Here's what he says when asked if it's true he used to want to
be a rapper and who his favorite hip-hop artist is:
"You know I really did, I still kinda do. Probably
Tang. I think when I was pretending to be a rapper I just
stole their lyrics. My parents were like, 'How do you know this
stuff? What's Compton?' They didn't understand it. 'Why aren't
you talking about London.'"
The interviewer then says she has interviewed RZA from Wu Tang
before and encourages Rob to reach out to them because she's
sure they would love to collaborate. About the collaboration
idea and RZA, Rob says, 'I'd love to, that'd be amazing! I think
he [RZA] is a genius. I think Wu Tang was the most original band
in... in my life anyway... and I think for like our
generation... blahblahblah." Watch the interview:
Listen to some Wu Tang here:
In April, an
article came out in Hungary, where Rob was filming Bel Ami
at the time, and Rob was once again talking about his music.
This time he talked about conquering a new instrument.
The musical scene in Hungary is bustling though and you like
to make music. The guys I grew up with all became musicians and they are
really good, I usually do something with them.
What kind of instruments do you play? I’m fighting with the violin now, not with a teacher, only by
myself, but not every one around me is happy about it. And I’m
composing. It’s interesting; it all depends on the actual
character I’m playing. The guy I play in my new movie, 'Remember Me' is a guy with deep feeling. When I was shooting that
movie, I composed lots of new songs. The guy in 'Bel Ami' though
is absolutely shallow, who is not touched by anything in the
world, especially not by art and since I’m in his skin now, I
have a total mental block.
Do you have a band? We had something, but we fell apart. It’s really different
now that it’s not my main act any more. It’s just a diversion
from acting now. That sounds a little cheesy. Of course, if
there’s a mic in a bar, you don’t have to ask me twice even
today. I did that a few times in Los Angeles, but some one
recorded it and put it on the internet and it scared me away. I
don’t need that. I will wait until this craziness around me
dies down and then I will make music again.
As a part-time musician, I guess you are interested in the Hungarian musical scene too. What is that band in New York called? Gogol Bordello! Didn’t
they do that documentary film about the eastern European
gypsy musicians? I’ve been interested in ethnic folk lore
since my childhood, so of course yes, I’d like to check out the
Hungarian music too.
Ask the producers, maybe they can shut down a bar for you in
Budapest. Nah, on one hand that wouldn’t be fair, on the other hand, that
wouldn’t be like blending into the clapping crowd and immerse
myself into their music.
Rob seems to have plans for his music to be released, though he has acknowledged that the
"money" is in acting and music is all about "proving yourself
everyday and not getting paid."
Oh Rob, that may be true for
some musicians, but I think your music would sell so much
without even having to go on tour - but you'd HAVE to go on tour. I have visions of you headlining Coachella
and Bonnaroo. I have dreams of you headlining Madison Square
Garden to a sold out crowd and it's just you, a guitar and a
spotlight. I watch the video for Ray LaMontagne's "Trouble" and
I pretend it's you because this is definitely the kind of song
you'd write. HOP.TO.IT.
So what do you think, people? Will the day ever come that
the craziness around Rob subsides? Will Rob put a record out?
Will we ever see him play live? Have I missed any mentions about
Rob's music or inspirations that should be posted on this site?
Leave me your thoughts below.
During the recent press junkets for Remember Me,
Rob was asked a couple of times about his plans to expand his
musical horizons. I think he was genuinely surprised to get
questions about his music - and I hope that he recognizes that
this is something that his fans really want!
I thought I'd include the video interviews where Rob is asked
about his music. The gist of the music talk from Rob is that he
is focused so much on his film work right now that music has
taken the back seat. He says that he doesn't understand how
actor/musicians are able to simultaneously manage the two
careers at the same time. He jokes that his buddies in the
Brit Pack are making
their first albums and it's "pissing him off a bit." And last
but not least he said he thinks he has a few months off towards
THE END OF THIS YEAR and he might try to get into the studio! I
am waiting with baited breath for that day to come!
On Jimmy Fallon 3/1/10, skip to 2:39 mark for music talk:
And a 3/9/10 interview with Steve from
Collider.com, skip to the 1:54 mark for music talk:
Rob also recently told Extra that his favorite song right now is
"Wild Nights" by Van Morrison. Here's a clip for you!
Oh and probably the funniest music news of all - Emilie de Ravin
recently mentioned that last summer Rob introduced her to N.W.A.'s
music (gangster rap) and got her hooked on Straight Outta
Compton! God, how I'd love to hear Rob cover this track! LOL! Of
course, here's a clip of the original for you!
For those of you who have not yet read the
script, I have to give you just a teensy-tiny spoiler - Rob will
sing in the movie! Well, he won't sing a whole bunch, but there
is one drunken collaboration with co-star Christoph Waltz and
they (attempt to) sing along to Louis Armstrong playing "Dream a
Little Dream of Me" on the radio. Again, a clip for you!
I really wish I had more to report on the music front. Let's
keep our fingers crossed that Rob gets crackin' on an album
later this year!
It's been a while, hope you are all doing well! Not much
music news to report right now, but there are more whispers
about Rob recording this year I thought I'd share with you. It's
going to take some explaining so read carefully.
Rob's next film, Bel Ami, is being executively produced by Simon
Fuller's new company XIX (Roman numeral for 19). If you don't
recognize Simon Fuller's name, well, he's the brains behind
American Idol via his former company 19 Entertainment. Fuller
sold 19 Entertainment to CKX in 2005 but stayed on board, he
just left in January and formed XIX at the same time. Bel
Ami, with leading man Rob, is Fuller's and XIX's very first film
project. Oh and Fuller founded the Spice Girls and has managed
the careers of tons of other musical acts, including Carrie
Simon Fuller is not to be confused with Simon Cowell, my
personal favorite judge on American Idol. Cowell has
reportedly approached Rob about signing Rob to a major record
deal. Cowell recently finalized a long-term deal with Sony
Music Entertainment via his Syco Records. It's been reported
that Rob is leery of Cowell, but I call BS on that rumor. Every
other artist on my Sirius radio is an American Idol or X-Factor
So are you thinking "that's great, Jen, but where are you going
with all of this?" Here's what I'm thinking:
Is Fuller's leap into the executive producer's seat at Bel Ami a
ploy by Fuller to get closer to Rob and his huge potential of a
music career? Did Cowell get wind of it and try to jump in and
muddy those waters to steal Rob away from Fuller for himself?
Maybe! It's totally a believable scenario to imagine Rob's music
career being managed by Simon Fuller under the 19 Recordings
umbrella or Simon Cowell's Sony affiliation. The one link
between these two Simon's is American Idol, so now, I'm just
wondering if we're gonna see Rob make an appearance on the
American Idol season finale in May! With these two Simons
involved and a Fuller-produced movie to promote, is this too
left field? I don't think so.
More food for thought: Summit Entertainment has been
uncharacteristically mum about Twilight Saga: Eclipse. We've yet
to get any hints on the movie, much less the Eclipse soundtrack
and the possibility of Rob's inclusion of a song or two. I'm
sure we're all holding out hope, especially considering the
Rob-less New Moon soundtrack sales were no where near those of
Twilight movie soundtrack that featured 2 songs by Rob.
Oh and before I forget, CONGRATS to Rob and
the Brit Pack for the Twilight movie soundtrack
Grammy nod. There is no doubt in my mind that it was Rob's 2
songs on their that were a main part of the success of this
but not least, I'm lending my brilliance (sarcasm) to the
Movie blog. I figure since I rarely get to update here that
it would be a good outlet for all the creative energy Rob and
his music inspires me with! Please join me and my 3 e-besties on
BelAmiFilm.com. It's a dirty little blog for a dirty little
I'd love to hear your thoughts on my ramblings! Leave me a
2009 has been a great year! I have a few updates to leave
you with this holiday season.
There's been more and more rumblings of Rob contributing a song
to the Eclipse movie soundtrack. Trust me, if we get an
official confirmation I will be announcing it over the
world-wide PA system. haha
Also, more rumblings that Rob will record an "anonymous" record
after all of the Twilight franchise films have been completed.
For those who are "new" to all of Rob's music, Rob has stated
several times that he would hate to be compared to cross-over
artists like Jennifer Lopez. Rob's afraid that his talents
and actor and a musician would make him come across as "cheesy."
(And the sound of sad pandas crying is heard throughout the
Thank you to Anja F. for transcribing the (bad quality)
recording of "In Your Head" so we'd have the correct lyrics to

Oh and here's more musical eye candy from Vanity Fair:
Last but not least, my New Moon movie premiere recap:
I was lucky enough to be one of the thousands of people that
descended upon Los Angeles for the world premiere of New Moon.
My buddy Alison over at
(our lovely affiliate) was 1st in line for the red carpet and
she saved me a spot in line with her famous group. I was
along the red carpet in a primo position to meet & greet with
the entire cast of New Moon and snap some pics and vids.
The most unexpected thing happened, too: a Summit representative
pulled Alison and the 4 of us into the theatre to watch the
movie with the entire cast! We sat in front of Sam Bradley
and Marcus Foster - Rob's two friends that are amazing
artists in their own right and have written many of the songs
you hear on RobRadio! Afterwards I got to hang out with
(another lovely affiliate) and meet everyone that I've been
chatting with the better of 2009! It was an amazingly great
Rob has been traveling the world to promote New Moon.
Here's a few things I've learned:
1. Rob misses doing open mics. He said he
will be in London over Christmas so perhaps there is hope
for him to sneak off for some open mics while he is home.
2. Rob's favorite song on the New Moon Soundtrack
is "Roslyn" by Bon Iver & St. Vincent, because it really
improved the scene where it is shown. Rob went on to
say that he is a long-time Bon Iver fan and once he heard
that Chris Weitz had picked them to appear on the soundtrack
he thought Chris had great taste in music.
Also, Vanity Fair posted several new outtakes, here are the
two that are related to Rob's music. I absolutely love the
Last, but certainly not least, I received an email from
Pemberton, the composer for Rob's movie The Haunted
Airman. He wrote in to let me know that The
Haunted Airman movie soundtrack is now available for
iTunes. I pestered him for some inside scoop to share
with yall, here's what I got:
"Super ironically I'm also really good
friends with Oliver who directed How To Be. Rob is
everywhere - we cannot escape him! Only heard the Rob
music in How To Be ("Choking On Dust"). Had a dinner
with him after Haunted Airman (long long time ago) - he was
very polite and gracious! Crazy how big he has become...!"
-- Daniel Pemberton
Yes, everyone has been blogging about the Vanity Fair article
and photos. I only have a few I will post, the ones I feel
are relevant; the guitar and piano pics! In the article,
Rob talks about playing piano as a boy and taking on guitar at
age 15. After Harry Potter, he considered giving up acting
and focusing solely on music. After getting back into
acting by taking on the role of the Haunted Airman he
decided to pursue acting solely. I'm still holding out
hope to catch a Rob gig one day.
Thanks to everyone who has been visiting my site and listening
to Rob Radio! I hope you have enjoyed having one spot to
house all of the aural awesomeness that is Rob's music. I
have a few updates for you.
1. Rob is rumored to be
working on providing one or more tracks for the Eclipse
soundtrack. I can't tell you how exciting this is for me,
as it is my opinion that his songs were the MAIN reason the
Twilight movie soundtrack did so well. Eclipse is my
favorite book of the series so I'll be very anxiously awaiting
how Rob uses the storyline and adapts it into music. Like
you, I am still holding out hope that Rob will put out an EP or
something solo one day.
MyRP has teamed up with
Twilight Fandom Gives Back to help raise money for Alex's
Lemonade Stand to fight childhood cancer. As a mother of a
2 year old, it is impossible for me to imagine being faced with
a crisis such as childhood cancer. We are supporting the
Twilight Fandom virtual lemonade stand's goal of raising
$5,000. Please donate any amount you can spare, even a
dollar. Forgo your 4bucks coffee for a day and throw it
into the pot. Anything helps! Thanks!
3. Rob still has not worn the New Stoli Shirt but we
have not given up hope! I believe we will be rallying for
the New Stoli during Rob's upcoming public appearances. It
should be fun!
4. I will be at the New Moon movie
premiere lined up along the red carpet with a throng of
e-friends. We will be live tweeting and all sorts of other
things so I will update you as we get closer to that.
Thanks again to everyone who helped pound the shit out of #NewStoliShirt
on Twitter last week! We didn't make it into the trending
topics, nor did Rob wear the new Stoli shirt, but it's all good!
I have faith that it will get worn one day cos the old
Stoli will continue to fall into disrepair and eventually will have to be sewn
again at some point - it'll be needing a stand-in.
Honestly, I think the real win is just having confirmation that
he has it. So folks, I'm sad to report this is the end of
the Stoli adventure for now - thanks for playing along with me!
So, like I said, moving right along....
We have a new artist to pimp - Rosi Golan - our New Music
Monday artist. She's featured right over c'here
her out mmk?
Also, the remastered bootleg audio is still in the works due
to some unexpected real life duties that popped up for me last
week. It shall be finished this week, pinky promise.

that he obliges us and wears the shirt and gets papped in it for
all of us to smile at! To achieve this goal, we hope to

A few people have emailed me about my site domain name curious
how I came up with the name, so I thought I'd take the
opportunity to let you know the thought process behing to the
domain name that I chose for the site, MyRobertPattinson.com.
I surely don't want anyone to think that, with my site name, I
am trying to "claim ownership" of Rob. haha
MyRobertPattinson.com means is "this is my Robert Pattinson fan
site" - if you SAY IT, SAY IT OUT LOUD (har har, Robward
humor) My Robert Pattinson Dot Com if just like saying My Robert
Pattinson Cyber Shrine. My little piece of cyber space
devoted to Rob's music - music that is all too deserving and not nearly
enough recognized on the nets. So there ya go.
Same thing goes for my Twitter name. MyRobPattinson is
for My Rob Pattinson Twitter, not to be confused with my
personal Twitter account that is top secret and never to be
revealed. jk, sorta.

PS: For those tracking the Adventures of the New Stoli Shirt,
the term "NewStoliShirt" made it on the MTV VMA's
Tweet Meter under both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
tweet trackers. Check it out!!
and let me fangirl for a moment, will ya?
9/10/09 will go down
and one of the most fun days of my LIFE! I had scores and
scores of nice and supportive emails from people all over the
globe about my new site. I made a huge sale in real life.
AND Peter Facinelli aka Dr. Cullen aka Coop confirmed via his
Twitter that Rob received the new Stoli vodka t-shirt that I
mailed Rob on 8/24/09. And then he reached out across the
net and grabbed my boob. Just kidding. (Nurse Jackie
humor there folks.) I thought I'd recap, diary style, the
adventures of the new Stoli shirt. If you'd like to join
my adventure then read on!
Hopefully you've all had a chance to check the site out and,
based on the feedback, it seems everyone agrees that it isn't a
fail! I appreciate all the kind words, so thank yall so
much. I thought yall may want to know the thought process
I used when coming up with the site. I confess to be a
total geek, so this may not be interesting to anyone but me, but
Before I started any design ideas, I knew that
RobRadio would be the main attraction, so I built that first.
I've been listening to it for about 5 months and just recently
shared it with the public as a teaser for my site launch.
The BIG IDEA was to build a virtual pub. A pub that Rob
would, hypothetically, like to drink his pints at, and maybe hop
up on stage on open mic night and belt out a few tunes. I
knew the pub would be in London and I've never been over the
pond, because rednecks just don't go to Europe, so I went to
Europe via Google.
I started researching London pubs and found a few key design
elements that most of them have in common:
1. Dark exterior color and pub name in brass letters 2. Flickering lanterns outside, often adjacent to a sign
with some sort of coat of arms on it 3. Interior floors are checkered black and white 4. A LOT of dark wood inside - the walls, the bar, etc.
With these few similarities in mind as a starting point, I
started scouring the web and saving my ideas in one place for
easy reference. For weeks I collected, changed my mind,
thought about scrapping the idea completely, but after living
with the ideas for a month or so I began working.
I thought I'd share my "storyboard" with yall. You can
see the original pub, the one before it was virtually remodeled
into Pattinson Arms. You'll see the two family crests for
Pattinson and which one I chose that now colorfully adorns the
iron scroll sign outside of Pattinson Arms. You'll see
which ideas I stuck with and which that I trashed. You'll
think of me as a woman with premature memory loss problems that
talks to herself... and you'll be thinking right.
The day has finally arrived that I launch this site, 6
months in the making! I am so excited to help share Rob's
music with the masses via this site.
Take a look around, but first, make sure you launch
RobRadio to play in
the background while you cruise my site. The site will
grow based on your feedback and participation.
I'd like to give a special thank you to Carter M. for
proofing my grammar throughout the site! Thanks to JAG for
the technical proofing! Thanks to FP for constant support!
Thanks to Amber for contributing on the Friends section. One love bbs!
