    Indeed, a well balanced and well written interview. Feel sad for him after reading it. Wasn't a fan of his solo recordings (with some exceptions), but, for me, his Genersis years were my favorite (up to Duke).

    Phil sounds like he needs therapy.
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    "Ubiquity bred contempt and..."

    So funny to me to see that. The first time I heard the word 'ubiquitous' as a kid was in reference to Phil Collins, in an article about him at the time that his ubiquity was breeding contempt. My cloudy memory suggests it was in a review of Robert Plant's Principle of Moments.

    So I've always associated that word with him. I wonder if the interviewer read that review too.

    Saddest thing is the article pointing out that he's respected by the likes of Kanye and Adele.

    I think Phil's "ubiquity" started way before his solo career. Look at all the things he drummed on during the 70s that weren't Genesis. It's quite a bit. I simply think that Phil loved being a musician and loved working, so he'd try to do as much as possible.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    Do you mean they were your favorite years he was active?

    Phil and most recent ex-wife to re-marry.

    She's quite attractive.

    Good for him. Seems that he's happier than he's been in recent times.

    I just watched "Phil the Shill" not two days ago. He was quite fun in that episode.

    That's one way to get your money back! Good luck to Phil

    I checked this thread mainly to verify that it was about the drummer from Genesis. I believe that's the first time I've seen him referred to as "Phillip Collins".

    I feel sorry for Phil, from prog hero to embarrassing middle of the road pop star in a few short years and multi millions into the bargain.

    Good, in-depth article. I've never understood the animosity heaped on him by the public and especially by prog fans. He contributed to a LOT great music with Genesis then went on to create great pop records. Get over it. Life's too short. It's not like he snuck into your house one night and strangled one of your kids.

    That's certainly better than what Phillip Collins did to ruin my Cheerios.

    I wonder if he listens to the music of Gerald Rafferty, Nathaniel Cole, James Hendrix and Lewis Reed?

    He possibly listens to the songs of James Hendricks, who is quite different from James (Jimi) Hendrix.

    Not sure what RTFR's problem is with me, but looks like he/she stays on the ignore list for now.
