Default Re: Phil Collins

Phil Collins, what an awesome career. Check out the Genesis Live album from 1973 And Phil driving a round badge Gretch 4 piece kit. And his Brand X stuff is just awesome. Perfect example of a guy who can do a balancing act. re-invent himself a few times. Be a pop star in one arena and do a whole prog-rock thing somewhere else. And when I saw him in 1994 he was still using concert toms, long after those have fallen out of fashion. Bravo. As far as the Page/Plant thang, just another case of ego's butting. Page did the Puff Daddy/Godzilla soundtrack song. Page/Plant did the Un-Ledded middle-eastern meets orchestra thing. And Phil gets called the "bad guy" for changing the vibe. It's only music people, no one gets hurt.
