The poor fella can barely walk these days, but even sat on a stool for a whole show, he can still deliver. His 16 year old son Nic is more than capable of playing Phil's drum parts and with Daryl Stuermer on guitar and Leland Sklar on bass, it's just like being back there on the No Jacket Required tour. He says the reason he's doing it, and wasn't doing it before, was mainly because of his son's increasing abilities behind a drum kit.

A good show, and highly reccommended to anyone who appreciates that beyond the soppy stuff he did for things like Buster and the Tarzan movie, the bloke has made some pretty good records.

Unlike people such as Elton John, I don't think Phil will be doing too many comeback tours, as time definitely appears to be catching up with him.

What is wrong with him? I'm sorry to hear it about him, I've always loved and admired his music. Really underrated in the music world, IMO.


He can't play drums anymore because of nerve damage in his hands and he almost killed himself with his drinking.

I had no idea. I'm very sad to learn about that :-( . I think I have read about his hearing being affected, so I was wondering if that got worse for him.
Dang, I really wish I got his book last year. Is it good?

Damn! :shock: I'm only halfway through the book so I didn't know about that or I forgot about it. He's all messed up.

To make matters even worse, Phil Collins has had to cancel his immediate gigs after having a fall in his hotel room, and gashing his head open.

Big shame, as one of the reasons I went to the gig on Sunday, was a pair of my nieces (twins) absolutely idolise the bloke, and were going to see him either tonight or tomorrow, as it's their birthday.

Well that sucks. There is a rumor going around that he's drinking again but I haven't seen it from a reliable source yet.

Saw Radiohead in Glasgow on Friday, so life is now complete.

Going to see the Kelly Hansen-fronted Foreigner next week, with Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience opening up for them. Supposedly Lou Gramm is slated to make appearances at a handful of gigs during this tour (it's the band's 40th anniversary), so fingers crossed he'll be there!

I may also make it to the Saturday show of The Classic East in NYC at the end of next week, but the logistics still haven't been sorted out. Besides Queen, The Eagles and Steely Dan are two of my favorite bands so it would be awesome if I can make it.
In the quiet of the night let our candle always burn, let us never lose the lessons we have learned.
