I hope he can play drums again one day so I could see a Lamb lineup of Genesis tour!
Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins sings the same praises about Phil Collins. IMOF,

This is from the RHCP website, it was an interview they did a few years ago:

Flea: [Foo Fighters] are a completely different band than us. It's like, they are a nice bunch of guys, and I've never jammed with any of them, so I couldn't say what that would be like. But they are a completely nice bunch of guys. Taylor keeps talking about doing some sort of Genesis song.

John Frusciante: "Suppers Ready." [Laughs] He keeps saying, "We can go to the rehearsal room! 'Suppers Ready!'" It's like a half-hour song written by Genesis that was their most ambitious piece they have done to date. I couldn't come anywhere close to playing it on the guitar.
