In the Air Tonight singer Phil Collins has been talking a lot about deciding to stop making music! Why you might ask…? The singer/songwriter and drummer says in addition to receiving negative criticism, his health has taken a toll on him. 60-year-old Phil Collins’ health problems include a dislocated vertebra, loss of hearing and nerve damage, making it difficult for him to even hold drum sticks.
It’s sad to see such a legend go but after years of rock and roll, the singer’s body is giving way. His years in the music business have been very successful, he has received 7 Grammys and had 13 hit singles as payment for all his hard work. In an interview with Time magazine, Phil Collins said “I don’t really belong to that world and I don’t think anyone’s going to miss me, I’m much happier to just write myself out of the script entirely”.
Whether it’s the negative criticism, or his health; Phil Collins apologizes for his success saying, “I’m sorry 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”.
Now that Phil is out of the business, he can focus on being a better father to his daughter, Lily Collins who was rumored to be dating Twilight star Taylor Lautner.
