Phil Collins - Not Dead Yet book review
And then there was one – with surprising tricks in their tale
Tony Banks said it best: for a decade and a half you couldn’t get away from Phil Collins. A generous chunk of one generation grew up with Collins – Genesis, solo, Disney soundtracks – ringing in their ears. When he wasn’t making his own music, he was backing up others, appearing in Miami Vice, splashed across the tabloids for leaving his wife via fax (which, as he points out here, was a complete falsehood), or forever seated forlornly at his keyboard on Top Of The Pops, an accusatory paint pot set in front of him.
