Phil Collins reveals he can “barely hold a drumstick anymore”

Phil Collins, renowned for his music career with Genesis and as a solo artist, faces physical challenges in his musical journey. With a love for music instilled from an early age and early performances, he found his passion.

Joining Genesis in the 1970s, Collins became a key member, eventually taking over as the lead singer. His solo career, featuring hits like “In The Air Tonight” and “You Can’t Hurry Love,” solidified his status in the music industry.

After leaving Genesis for his solo pursuits, Collins reunited with the band in 2017, announcing a world tour. However, due to health issues, he won’t be drumming; his son Nicholas will handle those duties.

Collins cited physical challenges, saying, “I can barely hold a stick with this hand,” leaving him uncertain about touring. Health problems, including dislocated vertebrae and nerve damage from surgery, have impacted his ability to perform.

These health concerns may signal the end of touring for Collins and Genesis, as they contemplate retiring from the road.
