Happy 63rd Birthday, Phil Collins!
Happy Birthday to Phil Collins!! He turns 63 today. The former drummer and lead singer for Genesis is almost getting his senior discount. Years ago it was sort of a pattern, Collins would record an album with Genesis then do one on his own.
Phil Collins is one of those artist I appreciate more now than I did when he was making records. I kind of took it for granted back when he put out song like “Do You Remember” and “Groovy Kind of Love.” Sappy and gagging to me back then but today those two songs bring me back to a place and time.
The video for the song, “Mama” Collins did with Genesis still creeps me out today. Other great songs, “Illegal Alien,” “Land of Confusion,” “Home By The Sea,” “Paperlate” and “I Can’t Dance” were great as well. “Sussudio” I loved when it was fresh and new.
About three years ago he said we was retiring do to health issues, so we’ll just enjoy what is out there now.
