Phil Collins announced to a London audience during the final stop of the latest Genesis tour, that he is ending his legendary career.
Collins, 71, has suffered from numerous health issues in recent years, including dislocating vertebrae in his neck in 2007 that left nerve damage to his hands. He had back surgery in 2015 and according to the NY Post, he can “barely hold” a drumstick.
