Phil Collins, who is now 70, has adamantly admitted that his health issues force him to stop performing music.
In a rare BBC Breakfast interview with colleagues on Thursday, he admitted, “I have certain physical problems, which is extremely upsetting because, you know, I would have liked to perform on stage with my son. his band, Genesis.
I have some physical issues that restrict me from performing, so I can hardly grasp a stick in this hand,” the musician continued.
Collins, a Grammy Award winner who is 70 years old, rose to fame as a soloist and Genesis’ drummer. The beloved band’s members announced in March 2020 that they would begin the “The Final Domino? Due to the pandemic, they postponed the 2021 competition. However, they declared in April that they would play in Europe as well as return to America for the first time in 14 years.
Regrettably, Phil acknowledged that his health issues prevented him from playing the drums any more, so his 20-year-old son Nic took his place.
Phil Collins is ending his musical career.
Phil Collins will perform with Genesis even though he is no longer able to play the drums.
Once the pandemic was postponed, Collins stated he was unsure if he would be able to participate in upcoming competitions with the band.
“We are all men of a certain age, and I believe that we are nearing the end in certain ways. I believe that is true in general for me, but now that the competitions are over, I’m not sure if I still want to go, he continued.
Collins, a legendary musician, has struggled with the spine for a long time. He suffered a serious back injury in 2009, and for the first time, he acknowledged that a fire has prevented him from playing the drums.
The singer said that his back issues are very severe. “After years of singing, I was sitting on the drums in a position that caused my vertebrae to compress my spinal cord. Even holding the sticks correctly would be painful for me. The artist continued, “I used to stick my sticks in my palms.
However, the “You’ll Be in My Heart” singer experienced another mishap in 2015 when he took a horrible fall and endured a very tough operation, which left him with wounded nerves and the inability to walk easily. He can only stand with a cane at this time and can only move around in a wheelchair.
Phil Collins was duped by his former wife.
The artist who brought us joy for years with his music—and many of us sang his songs—left his mark on his face and body as a result of his sorrow and suffering. At the age of 70, the British artist’s illness appears to have crushed him, and the battle with his ex-wife has only made matters worse. Regrettably, the artist is utterly unrecognizable with all-white hair.
