Phil Collins Retires Due To Health Issues

While many folks know him as the solo artist who won awards and accolades but also was the frontman and long time drummer for the iconic band Genesis, Phil Collins announced his retirement due to multiple health issues.

I grew up loving Genesis - both the Peter Gabriel years and the Phil Collins years so I'm sad to see his performing career end.
