With injured spine, Phil Collins can play drums no more, no more, no more



Phil-Collins-First-Final Shocking news: Former Genesis and solo artist Phil Collins says he can no longer play the drums.

"After playing drums for 50 years, I've had to stop. My vertebrae have been crushing my spinal cord because of the position I drum in," Collins told London's Daily Mail. "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."

Collins had already (sorta) called it quits on his music career after the last Genesis reunion tour. Though he did curiously tell the Mail, "Don't worry, I can still sing."
