    Unhappy Phil Collins never going to play drums again...

    Phil Collins yesterday revealed he will never play the drums again because of a spine injury.
    The Genesis star says he can no longer even hold his drum sticks because sitting at a kit is too painful.
    Phil, 58, said: "I've got a condition that means I can't play any more. After playing drums for 50 years, I've had to stop.
    "Obviously I'm very sad about it. My vertebrae has been crushing my spinal cord because of the position I drum in.
    "It comes from years of playing. I can't even hold the sticks properly without it being painful.
    "I even used to tape the sticks to my hands to get through.
    But don't worry, I can still sing."
    The news will be heartbreaking for Phil's millions of fans worldwide.
    A friend said: "He is devastated as drumming is everything to him. It's how he made his name and it set him on the road to superstardom.
    "But drumming has been getting more and more painful and he decided enough was enough and called it a day. He has to put his health first."

    I know he's old news but I've always liked Phil and really loved Genesis back in the day. I thought this was pretty sad. He's a really talented guy.

    Act normal and the crowd will accept you. Act deranged and they will make you their leader

    Awww.....I like him too. Except for all the marrying chicks and dumping thing.

    One of my first tapes, yes tape, was 'No Jacket Required'. Still like it.

    Oh well, it might have been time anyway to hang it up perhaps? Just saying.
