Conversation as heard by a fly on the wall, in the Genesis office, many moons ago....
Mike Rutherford:"Hey Tony, bad news old chap! Peter says he's leaving the band. What'll we do now?
Tony Banks: "Well, how about getting that oik of a drummer to sing a bit? I mean, he's always fancied himself as a bit of an actor, and all he has to do is to pretend to sing like Pete, and no-one will know the difference.
Rutherford: Good plan!

The rest is History...

Collins was sitting 4 rows in front of me, that was my first surprise, he saw the complete show and anyone could tell for the look of his face that he was having a great time , he saw himself playing drums ! 'cos the guy in "The musical box" not only looks like him but moves the same..

When Collins entered the stage , it was madness, everyone became wild, he walked to"his" old drum kit and looked at the public, his face was so expressive, full of nostalgia, like saying " you think I can't do it ?"
he raised his hands and face , like giving thanks to someone up there, caress the drum and sat, then he was totally possessed by the "Drum Devil" and "the musical box" the integral version of the song emerged with Collins playing 10 amazing minutes of incredible music, like he was 30 years younger , man what a pleasure to see the guy playing and singing like that, like I was in 1974 , I still can not believe it, in fact , he played even better than before, it was so natural, so inspired ....he proved wrong everyone that was willing to write him off as a drummer.
The end of the song was so powerful , he was really possessed, man , the guy when he wants can play !!!

I Don't Care Anymore
Phil Collins


Well you can tell ev'ryone I'm a down disgrace
Drag my name all over the place.
I don't care anymore.
You can tell ev'rybody 'bout the state I'm in
You won't catch me crying 'cos I just can't win.
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care what you say
I don't play the same games you play.

'Cos I've been talking to the people that you call your friends
And it seems to me there's a means to an end.
They don't care anymore.
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind.
I don't care anymore I don't care no more

I don't care what you say
We never played by the same rules anyway.

I won't be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore

Well, I don't care now what you say
'Cos ev'ry day I'm feeling fine with myself
And I don't care now what you say
Hey I'll do alright by myself
'Cos I know.

'Cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face 'cos you held all the cards.
I don't care anymore.
And I really ain't bothered what you think of me
'Cos all I want of you is just a let me be.
I don't care anymore D'you hear? I don't care no more

I don't care what you say
I never did believe you much anyway.

I won't be there no more
So get out of my way.
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore
D'you hear? I don't care anymore
I don't care no more
You listening? I don't care no more
No more!

You know I don't care no more!

No more, no no more
No more, no no more
No more, no no more
No more, no no more

I like his music but I never want to see him guest star on another TV show.

Oh, well... he's in his '50's and has several other careers he can concentrate on.. if he doesn't just semi- or fully retire.
