Happy Retirement, Phil

Phil Collins announced either through some press release or press leak that he is no longer a part of the music business, and I have to admit I am not the least bit surprised.  He worked constantly from the 70’s through the 90’s to be the person that he now is; now that his body is starting to give him trouble I think it’s about time he got some well-deserved rest.

I saw Phil Collins playing on PBS television when I was about seven or eight years old, and I thought that the notion of a single person able to play nearly all the instruments performing with a band on stage was absolutely the greatest thing I had seen up to that point and it was something that I wanted to do someday.

Of course, knowing what kind of person he has been throughout his career, he may very well return to sing once or twice.
