Phil Collins

Phil Collins' ascent to the status of one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the '80s and beyond was probably as much of a surprise to him as it was to many others. Balding and diminutive, Collins was almost 30 years old when his first solo single, "In the Air Tonight," became a number two hit in his native U.K. (the song was a Top 20 hit in the U.S.). Between 1984 and 1990, Collins had a string of 13 straight U.S. Top Ten hits.

Long before any of that happened, however, Collins was a child actor/singer who appeared as the Artful Dodger in the London production of Oliver! in 1964. (He also has a cameo in A Hard Day's Night, among other films.) He got his first break in music at the end of his teens, when he was chosen to be a replacement drummer in the British art rock band Genesis in 1970. (Collins maintained a separate jazz career with the band Brand X as well.)

Genesis was fronted by singer Peter Gabriel. They had achieved a moderate level of success in the U.K. and the U.S., with elaborate concept albums, before Gabriel abruptly left in 1974. Genesis auditioned 400 singers without success, then decided to let Collins have a go. The result was a gradual simplifying of Genesis' sound and an increasing focus on Collins' expressive, throaty voice. And Then There Were Three... went gold in 1978, and Duke was even more successful.

Collins made his debut solo album, Face Value, in 1981, which turned out to be a bigger hit than any Genesis album. It concentrated on Collins' voice, often in stark, haunting contexts such as the piano-and-drum dirge "In the Air Tonight," which sounded like something from John Lennon's debut solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.

During the '80s, Collins was enormously successful in balancing his continuing solo work with his membership in Genesis. In 1992, Genesis released We Can't Dance and began an extensive tour. Upon its completion Collins released Both Sides in 1993, and the record became his first album not to produce a major hit single or go multi-platinum. In 1995, he announced that he was leaving Genesis permanently. The following year, he released Dance into the Light. Although the album was a flop, its subsequent supporting tour was a success.

The Hits collection followed in 1998, and a year later Collins made his first big-band record, Hot Night in Paris. The song cycle Testify arrived in 2002, and his next studio-recorded solo release was 2010's Going Back, which saw Collins revisiting the Motown hits that so influenced him and featuring three of the surviving Funk Brothers -- guitarists Eddie Willis and Ray Monette and bassist Bob Babbitt. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Has ANYONE ever known a girl named Sussudio? And is he stuttering, is her name Sudio and he's just got a stutter?

Balding and diminutive? That's about right, actually, and you can add fairly homely as well, but that doesn't diminish his musical talent one iot. We worry too much about looks in our culture. If he were sexy and good looking, he would have wound up in one of those incredibly disgusting boy bands. I'll take balding and diminutive along with talent any day of the week.

In darkness your cries drown all reason as sounds echo bitter treason the night screams for retribution but agony takes hopes under while tearing heart & soul asunder listen a small voice whispers from the past this night will not last remember miracles wrought so many times before when enemies pursued through every door your life's not a gambit soon you will see salvation arrive keeping your life from forfeit on this hellish road you've strived to pull from air dreams lost in death & despair

Your only hope washes away as this dream dies in fire and pain; but in your cries to end every cut crossing your soul of flame, remember the one passing by hiding a note met only for your eyes to gain. its still there waiting to be called as you lash out in despair. just dial it and before the next blow begins a savior will ride in to give healing from your adversaries abdominal acts of sin; and your life will be renewed with hope once again.
