I don't understand the last sentence in the following paragraph, hope that someone could explain it to me. It is from the biography of Robbie Williams by Emily Herbert, and the person who speaks in the paragraph is Robbie Williams' songwriter partner Guy Chambers.

"Rob didn't know who I was", said Guy. "He saw my name on a list of 10 writers - and I was about number six down - and he just liked the look of my name. He didn't know who World Party [Guy's former band] were, he was just into hip hop and Frank Sinatra. I bought my first flash pad the following year."

    Great! Thank you for the explanation! I tried to look up the words in the dictionary, but these meanings didn't come up, because obviously they are colloquial.
