In Torrance, cops make potentially lethal mistakes. He had to text her that he was OK. If she woke she could glance at her phone and take reassurance. He thought the ritual was silly, because he might run into trouble five minutes later, but he did it anyway.
Break-up anthem In the Air Tonight Raised in Hounslow by an insurance man and a theatrical agent, Collins was a child actor before joining Genesis in at the age of
Under a single spotlight, Phil Collins hangs his stick on the back of a high chair and sits down. Unlike the body, the voice is largely unravaged by time. Just before the drums turn the track into the almighty power ballad it always was, a vast shadow of his new drummer looms on a white screen behind him, arms aloft and ready for service. Now drumming for his dad. As meditations on ageing go, it is pretty powerful stuff.
The last half hour was positively carnivalesque. To see the year-old on stage at all is quite something.

Smith of The Daily Vault believed that “Sussudio” was the best track on the album, calling it a “monster track”, also adding that “This is a song that chugs and churns along at a gingerly pace, set to a beat that is sure to get car speakers thumping.
At the time, it was like nothing you had ever heard before on the radio. The word “Sussudio” may not have meant anything, but the song itself was pure magic. David Fricke of Rolling Stone said that songs like “Sussudio”, with the heavy use of a horn section, were “beginning to wear thin. In the UK the song reached number It is one of Collins’ most well known songs and is referenced in many different media, including books, stand-up comedy acts and television shows.

Balding and diminutive, Collins Phil Collins’ ascent to the status of one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the ’80s and beyond was probably as much of a surprise to him as it was to many others. Balding and diminutive, Collins was almost 30 years old when his first solo single, “In the Air Tonight,” became a number two hit in his native U. Between and , Collins had a string of 13 straight U.
He also has a cameo in A Hard Day’s Night, among other films. He got his first break in music at the end of his teens, when he was chosen to be a replacement drummer in the British art rock band Genesis in Collins maintained a separate jazz career with the band Brand X as well.
At the age of five he was given a child’s drum kit, a novelty gift which would incite a life-long passion for percussion. He went on to study at the Barbara Speake Stage School where he was taught the rudiments of acting, while he studied the ins and outs of a drum kit from seasoned professional Lloyd Ryan. Focusing on acting at a young age, Collins landed his first role as the Artful Dodger in a stage production of ‘Oliver! He landed bit and extra parts, but by the late ’60s he realised his passion lay in music and after seeing an advert by the progressive rock band Genesis, in Collins became their new drummer.

David Longdon exclusive interview for ‘Dusk’ — November When and where were you born? I was born on the 17th June in the city of Nottingham, United Kingdom. Who were your musical influences? It was part of a weekly series that studied the world’s greatest composers and their music. I still have it right here in my studio. When I was a boy my uncle Jack would play me an eclectic mixture of Classical music, Country music and Opera.
He also bought me books to read. Things like Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Poe. I was nine years old, when a friend introduced me to the music of The Who and for some reason the music of Pete Townshend inspired me to write my own music. I read you are a multi instrumentalist; which instruments can you play? When I write songs, often the material will suggest certain instrumentation, so I endeavor to play these parts on their specific instruments.
Your main band was called The Gifthorse, can you tell me something about their music? It developed out of the ashes of my earlier group O’ Strange Passion.

One of the great British musicians is back performing, having just returned to the stage for his first live dates in 10 years.
We decided to share that with as many people as we could.

Strong effort from beginning to end! A few low points but, overall, a decent effort. Several weak points detract from the album, but it’s still worth owning. Unless you’re a real fan, you might not like this album very much. Stay away from this one unless you are a hardcore fan! The impact of Face Value and Phil’s growing abilities as a songwriter would ripple into later Genesis projects, evolving the group’s sound on albums like Duke and Abacab into previously uncharted areas.
A horn section and the drum box, which later became a Phil Collins’ trademark sound by the mid s, were utilized to their fullest on the album. Combining all of these influences, artistic experimentation, and Collins’ personal musical development spawned a number of memorable songs from the intense “In The Air Tonight” to the jazzy “I Missed Again” to the solemn and scornful “You Know What I Mean” to his cover of the Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows.
I can’t picture Phil Collins ever singing some of this material in this day and age with his squeeky clean, ‘adult contemporary’ image, but it makes an outstanding time capsule of the next stage of Collins’ transformation as a solo performer. In their place, No Jacket provided a dance-orientated groove balanced delicately with a few songs like “Doesn’t Anybody Stay Together Anymore” that were reminiscent of the style of songwriting from previous solo projects.
No Jacket Required was one of the biggest and most successful albums of , clinching Phil Collins’ superstar status not only as a member of Genesis, but as a musician in his own right. The album scored several hit singles, including: The mixes vary from extremely catchy to just plain awful. Some of the remixes, like “Sussudio,” mirror closely what the live versions have sounded like, while others, like “Don’t Lose My Number,” are far more removed from the popular versions you may know and love – and not in a good way.
