On Friday, 4th March 2011, Phil Collins announced that he is retiring from the music business. The ex-Genesis drummer and singer said "[it is] a good time to stop", adding: "I don't think anyone's going to miss me."

The star joined Genesis in 1970 as drummer(replacing John Mayhew, appearing on all albums from Nursey Cryme onwards) and later replaced Peter Gabriel as lead singer. In the 1980s he had hits such as "In The Air Tonight", "Against All Odds" and "Two Hearts", while continuing with Genesis.
Collins is one of the all-time great drummers, up there with John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Keith Moon (The Who), Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson) and Nick Mason (Pink Floyd).
