British pop musician Phil Collins (67) is seeing a comeback of his band Genesis as a possibility. Condition is a change in the line-up: his son, Nicholas would have his old place on the drums need to take it. “I think that, if we would do it with Nic on the drums.”
“Because I don’t think that I yet am able,” said Collins, who is no longer on his former dexterity with the drumsticks can count since he has severe nerve damage suffered. He made that statement in an interview with musician magazine Rolling Stone that yesterday was published.
Father and son have already experience with this division of roles: in the current solo tour, “Not Dead Yet” from Collins guides son Nicholas his 67-year-old father on the drums. Collins thinks to say that the other band members – Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks – his son is “high enough estimate to have him on board as part of the band”.
The singer added, however, that the former band members still have no concrete plans in that sense. “I have not yet really with Tony and Mike discussed. I’ve very quietly against Tony said, that Nic on the drums would have to be if we would do it. He has not said ‘no’. But I’m not sure if he really heard it or not.”
