Philip David Charles Collins LVO is an English drummer, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor, best known as the drummer/singer of the rock band Genesis and for his solo career. Between 1982 and 1990, Collins achieved three UK and seven US number-one singles in his solo career. When his work with Genesis, his work with other artists, as well as his solo career is totalled, he had more US top 40 singles than any other artist during the 1980s. His most successful singles from the period include “In the Air Tonight”, “I Don’t Care Anymore”, “Against All Odds”, “One More Night”, “Sussudio”, “Take Me Home”, “Two Hearts”, “A Groovy Kind of Love”, “I Wish It Would Rain Down”, and “Another Day in Paradise”.
Born and brought up in west London, Collins played drums from the age of five and completed drama school training, which secured him various roles as a child actor. He then pursued a music career, joining Genesis in 1970 as their drummer and becoming lead singer in 1975 following the departure of Peter Gabriel. Collins began a successful solo career in the 1980s, initially inspired by his marital breakdown and love of soul music, releasing the albums Face Value (1981), Hello, I Must Be Going (1982), No Jacket Required (1985) and …But Seriously (1989). Collins became, in the words of AllMusic, “one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the ’80s and beyond”.
He also became known for a distinctive gated reverb drum sound on many of his recordings.] In 1985, Collins resumed his acting career, appearing in Miami Vice and subsequently starring in the film Buster (1988). In 1996, Collins left Genesis to focus on solo work; this included writing songs for Disney’s Tarzan (1999) for which he received an Oscar for Best Original Song for “You’ll Be in My Heart”. He rejoined Genesis for their Turn It On Again Tour in 2007. Following a five-year retirement to focus on his family life Collins released an autobiography in 2016 and completed his Not Dead Yet Tour in 2019.
Can’t Stop Loving You
Writer Billy Nicholls first released this song in 1977, before Leo Sayer scored a UK top 10 with it a year later.
Over 20 years later, Phil Collins recorded a cover version as the lead single for his seventh solo album.
Nicholls later said of the song: “It is a fictitious lyric and its poignancy stems from my not wanting to leave my then-young family.”
You can’t hurry love
Originally a massive hit for The Supremes in 1966, Phil decided to cover the soul anthem 16 years later.
He said: “The idea of doing ‘Can’t Hurry Love’ was to see if Hugh Padgham and I could duplicate that Sixties sound. It’s very difficult today because most recording facilities are so much more sophisticated than they were back then.
“It’s therefore hard to make the drums sound as rough as they did on the original. That’s what we were going after, a remake, not an interpretation, but a remake.”
This song was co-written with Lamont Dozier (of Motown’s Holland-Dozier-Holland), and was composed for the 1988 movie Buster, in which Phil also starred.
The soundtrack also contained the number one cover of ‘A Groovy Kind of Love’, and it took us right back to the 1960s.
