The Real Reason Phil Collins Is Quitting Music Biz

I had heard that Phil Collins was hanging up the drumsticks and giving his signature vocals a permanent rest.  Everyone said it for “health reasons”.  But ,according to a post on Phil’s website, he’s quitting so he can be a “full time father” to his two young sons on a “daily basis”.

In a post titled “Breaking News,” the multiple Grammy award winner writes that he wants to explain his reasons “for calling it a day” in response to articles claiming why he was quitting the music business.

“Many of the articles printed over the last few months have ended up painting a picture of me that is more than a little distorted,” Collins explains.

Collins says he is stopping music so he can be a full time father to his two young sons “on a daily basis” — not because of bad reviews, bad press or because he doesn’t “feel loved.”
