PHIL COLLINS EXPLAINS RETIREMENT

Phil Collins has set the record straight about his upcoming break from music. The singer wrote on his website that even though his rep has said otherwise, he is indeed retiring, but it is not because of bad reviews or because he doesn’t feel loved by fans or the music industry. Rather, Phil says he is stopping so he “can be a full-time father” to his two young sons on a daily basis.

In previous interviews, Phil said he believed he captured paranormal energy in photos of the Alamo and also that he considered suicide. Collins said those articles “distorted” his words and made him seem “like a tormented weirdo,” but he insists that is not the case and adds, “There’s no need for the straitjacket.”
