Watch two teens discover Phil Collins’ In the Air Tonight for the first time
August 7th, 2020 under Phil Collins. [ Comments: none ]


Remember the first time you heard In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins? You sat there in awe as you listened to the whole song. That was us, but will teens feel the same we as did?
TwinsthenewTrend, who listen to a lot of songs for the first time on YouTube, finally gave this haunting tune a try. What did think? They were just like us. Proving the single is a timeless classic that effects everyone the same way. That drum solo still makes our pulses race, and as they said, wakes you up.

I loved watching them react to it because now we know what we looked when we closed our eyes and absorbed every note. There is just some kind of power to that song that sucks you in. It is nice to see it doesn’t get lost with the younger generation. I am sure their kids will feel the same way they did, and we did.

Now, who wants to tell them what everyone thought that song was about, and it isn’t. Collins’ brother did not die as someone watched him drown, and that man did nothing to save him. To hear what it is really about, then click here.

Back to the twins, like I said, they listen to lots of songs for the first time and record their reactions. What songs do you want to see them do? I would love to see them listen to Meat Loaf’s Paradise in the Dashboard Light and Corey Hart’s Sunglasses at Night.

BTWF: Phil Collins in Flaming Youth

Before Phil Collins was playing the drums with Genesis, he was touring with Flaming Youth. What a head of hair he had back when he was 19 in 1970.

Does Genesis look like they are ready to tour?

Yesterday, Genesis announced that they are going on tour again for the first time in 13 years. After the announcement, they shared this photo of themselves sitting on the couch.

To me, it looks like Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford will be living up to their song We Can’t Dance. I hope they are not In Too Deep with their plans and can keep performing Tonight, Tonight, Tonight.

Then again, it could just be because that couch has the Invisible Touch and it is just so comfortable, they all sank into it. Who hasn’t done that?

Phil Collins gives us something do on NYE when the clock strikes midnight
December 21st, 2017 under Phil Collins. [ Comments: none ]


If you are like me, then you are sick of listening to the Ryan Seacrests and Anderson Coopers of the World countdown the clock on New Year’s Eve to tell us when the years change. You want something different to let us know when the clock strikes midnight. Well, Phil Collins just gave us a solution. Just start his song In the Air Tonight (that everyone thinks they know what it really is about but really don’t) at 11:56:40p and when the drum solo starts, make out with the person next to you. And now we have a new tradition for New Year’s Eve. Just make you sure you have a designated DJ to press play at exact right moment otherwise you will be stuck in the past year and not move forward to the new one. After all it is the night when the amateurs are out drinking.

If you want something really trippy do on New Year’s Day, then put Dark Side of the Moon in your CD player and The Wizard of Oz in your DVD player. When the lion roars for the third time at the start of the movie, press play on CD player. Then let the two of them work their magic together. Or just watch the combination on YouTube! It is one of the trippiest things I have ever done without the help of any drugs!

Phil Collins cancels two show after bathroom fall
June 8th, 2017 under Phil Collins, Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]


Phil Collins returned to touring this week after a decade off and some major back surgery, and this morning he had an incident after last night’s performance that made him cancel his next two concerts. His people explained what happened Facebook.

We unfortunately have to announce that Phil Collins’ performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London will be postponed tonight (June 8) and tomorrow (June 9). Phil suffers from ‘drop foot’ as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk. He rose in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and slipped in his hotel room, hitting his head in the fall on a chair. He was taken to hospital where he had stitches for a severe gash on his head close to his eye and is recovering well. He will be kept under observation for 24 hours.

Phil sends his sincere apologies and thanks to fans. He has had a fantastic week at his first shows in 10 years, cannot thank people enough for their warm reaction and is excited to return.

These Royal Albert Hall shows will be rearranged for November 26th and 27th this year. All tickets for June 8th will be valid for November 26th and tickets for June 9th will be valid for November 27th.

He will carry on with this tour on Sunday in Cologne and then Paris before returning to London for his headline performance at BST Hyde Park on June 30th.

Hopefully, he will be better soon because his fans love seeing him rock the house with his mesmerizing voice.
