Phil Collins: I quit and I don’t think anyone’s going to miss me

Phil Collins announced his retirement from the music and said he regretted having had so much success.

The British musician, who put an end to a four-decade career, believes that his absence won’t be regretted. Collins says he now feels like an outsider in an industry he had dominated in the last decades of the twentieth century.

“I look at the MTV Music Awards and I think: ‘I can’t be in the same business as this’, I don’t really belong to that world and I don’t think anyone’s going to miss me. I’m much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely,” Phil Collins recently said in an interview with FHM magazine.

The former drummer of the group Genesis, which has sold over 150 million records, regrets becoming a superstar: “I’m sorry that it was all so successful. I honestly didn’t mean it to happen like that. It’s hardly surprising that people grew to hate me.”

In the interview, the British musician also spoke about a “strategy” to make his exit from the stage musical: “I’ll go on a mysterious biking holiday and never return. That would be a great way to end the story, wouldn’t it?”

The 60-year-old classic rocker, currently living in Switzerland, has been faced with numerous health problems lately. He has hearing problems, a dislocated vertebra and nerve damage in his hands from playing the drums.

Phil Collins, who throughout his career he has sold over 150 million albums, became famous in the ’70s, as the drummer for the band Genesis, after he answered a newspaper ad he found in Melody Maker. Initially, he was just doing backing vocals, but took the microphone after singer Peter Gabriel left the band in 1975.

“A Trick Of The Tail”, the band’s first album that had Collins on vocals, debuted on the charts in third place. Subsequently, he launched a solo career, debuting with the album “Face Value” (1981), which topped the charts. Hits like “In The Air Tonight” and “You Can not Hurry Love” followed.

In 1996, he announced that he was leaving Genesis after 26 years of collaboration. Collins then released the albums “Dance Into the Light” (1996), “Best Of” (1998), “A Hot Night In Paris” (1999).
