“…turning it off again…”

Singer/ Songwriter Phil Collins made a startling announcement the other day, regarding his music career…

He’s ‘throwing it all away’…

That’s right…Phil has decided to get out of the business at this stage of his life, especially since the previous years has seen him from stage to stage to stage…studio to studio to su-su-sussudio…

And now, the road has simply taken its toll, with back problems, hearing loss and other ailments affecting him…

But what’s also affecting him is the music scene today, that has made him feel irrelevant…

Perhaps so…but this isn’t the first time Phil has been mired in musical controversy…

Since the first days of Genesis, (the band, not the book from the bible), Phil had always been a driving force, especially with his drumming prowess…

However, it was lead singer Peter Gabriel’s band, and always would be, even after Peter left…and that’s when Phil stepped in it, literally…

He stepped into the role of lead singer, and forever changed the way critics and fans alike would describe the band…

They would always have to clarify which Genesis they liked, and most were always unanimous about what side they took, leaving Phil’s days, although more profitable, certainly less relevant…

And so, it has come full circle…He himself is starting to feel less involved in a world that has revolved without him…

But unlike Adam & Eve from ‘Genesis’, Phil never got kicked out…He’s simply taking himself out of the garden now…
