Phil Collins in Performances

Many years back, ‘Another Day in Paradise’ and ‘One More Night’ were famous tunes that were played everywhere throughout the world. The above tunes are to date, my undisputed top choices and I suppose were same for many other people around the globe. Philip David Charles Collins LVO is the one behind these hit tunes.

Phil Collins, as he is essentially called is an English drummer, vocalist, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor, most popular as the drummer/artist of the musical band Genesis and for his solo career. Somewhere in the range of 1982 and 1990, Collins scored three UK and seven US number-one singles in his music career.

The vocalist who plays Pop; soft rock; progressive rock; art rock; jazz fusion; blue-eyed soul music, has actively been involved with music since 1963.

Moving on from one of the best music band group, Genesis, the 69 year old with so much experience produced hit tunes since the mid 1980s which includes: In the Air Tonight, Both Sides, Going Back, Face Value,…But Seriously, Against All Odds, Now That’s What I Call Music 3 and some more. Collins has been marvelous since the very first moment of his profession in the music business.

Tragically, in March 2011, he authoritatively made a change when he was fighting a progression of medical problems including a spinal issue that constrained him to quit playing the drums. Nonetheless, he announced he was resigning from music.

Phil Collins’ horrifying medical problems started in 2007, when he disengaged vertebrae in his neck during a Genesis band tour. The injury caused nerve harm in his grasp, leaving him incapable to play the drums.

He however affirmed his medical problems and stated:

‘There isn’t any drama regarding my “disability” and playing drums. ‘Somehow during the last Genesis tour I dislocated some vertebrae in my upper neck and that affected my hands”

At a point, Collins walked with a stick, and even performed from a seat because of his unexpected frailty. After this assertion, Collins was seen showing up in a wheelchair surprising a considerable lot of his fans. Phil Collins whose net worth is $260 million dollars, presently performs while seated.

The artist who used to play with the British band Genesis had a fall after he came out of retirement which delayed the tour he wanted to begin in London. Meanwhile, the vocalist has announced a new round of ‘Still Not Dead Yet’ Live show, with the event dates in the United States for this fall.

He has also mentioned his return to continental Europe for the fourth leg of his Not Dead Yet tour. Phil Collins will definitely bring his ‘Not Yet Dead’: Live.
