A return definitely seems likely...
Phil Collins is once again suggesting he will make a return to music. Billboard reports that during a speech in Miami Beach yesterday to promote the expansion of his nonprofit Little Dreams Foundation (which helps youth realize their artistic, musical or athletic dreams), he said he was writing new material. Here are highlights:
On a possible return to music: "I've decided I kind of missed that writing creative stuff, so I'm trying to get back into writing, and that's getting into a certain headspace and personal drive."
On how much he has finished: I've got some lyrical ideas on paper that are good. I've started to thrash around at the piano. A lot of it is hit and miss. All you need is something to hang an idea on and you're off."
On what he'll be remembered for: "That's going to be on my headstone. He came. He wrote `In the Air Tonight.' He ... died."
On being a lucky man: "All I set out to do was to earn a living playing drums, you know? And as luck would have it, I've surpassed that."
