Who is Phil Collins?
Philip David Charles Collins LVO is an English drummer, singer, songwriter, actor, and record producer. He used to be the drummer and lead singer for the rock band Genesis. He also has a solo career. Collins had three UK number-one singles and seven US number-one singles as a solo artist between 1982 and 1990. When you add up all of his work with Genesis, other artists, and on his own, he had more US top 40 singles in the 1980s than any other artist. During this time, “In the Air Tonight,” “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now),” “One More Night,” and “Another Day in Paradise” were his most popular singles.
Philip David Charles Collins was born at Putney Hospital in southwest London on January 30, 1951. Greville Philip Austin Collins, who lived from 1907 to 1972, was an insurance agent for London Assurance. His mother, Winifred June Strange Collins, who lived from 1913 to 2011, worked in a toy store and then as a booking agent at the Barbara Speake Stage School in East Acton, a private performing arts school. Collins is the youngest of three children. His sister Carole was a professional ice skater and theatrical agent like her mother, and his brother Clive was a well-known cartoonist. Before Collins turned two, his family had moved twice. When they settled at 453 Hanworth Road in Hounslow, Middlesex, they had been there for a year.
Collins got a toy drum set for Christmas when he was five, and later his two uncles made him a set out of triangles and tambourines that fit into a suitcase. As Collins got older, his parents bought him more full sets as he got older. He got better by playing along with music on TV and the radio. During a family trip to a Butlin’s, seven-year-old Collins sang “The Ballad of Davy Crockett” for a talent show. Halfway through, he stopped the orchestra and told them they were playing in the wrong key.
Collins was influenced a lot by the Beatles and Ringo Starr when he was young. He also liked the less well-known London band The Action, whose drummer he would try to sound like. It was through their music that he first heard Motown and Stax Records’ soul music. Buddy Rich, a jazz and big band drummer, also had an effect on Collins. Rich’s ideas about how important the hi-hat was made Collins stop using two bass drums and start using the hi-hat.
Collins quit school when he was 14 to go to Barbara Speake full time. He was an extra in the Beatles’ 1964 movie A Hard Day’s Night, where he can be seen among the teens screaming during the TV concert scene. Later in 1964, Collins was cast as the Artful Dodger in two runs of the musical Oliver! on London’s West End. He got £15 a week for the part, which he said was “the best part for a kid in all of London.”
