Phil Collins: No Jacket Required

"British singer and drummer Phil Collins has used his personal website to announce his retirement in a bid to clarify recent speculation over his career. ... Speculation about a possible last act for Collins was sparked by an interview in April's issue of FHM magazine in which the former Genesis drummer and frontman said 'it feels like a good time to stop for awhile.' ... Collins has sold an estimated 100 million albums as a solo artist, but he told FHM he looks at events like the MTV Music Awards and says he 'can't be in the same business as this.' 'I don't really belong to that world and I don't think anyone's going to miss me.' ... The 60-year-old singer of hits like 'Groovy Kind of Love,' 'In the Air Tonight,' 'Another Day In Paradise,' 'Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now),' and 'Separate Lives' with Marilyn Martin, has also won an Academy Award for his soundtrack to the film 'Tarzan.' His album 'No Jacket Required' won a Grammy for album of the year in 1985" (Cassandra Vinograd, "Singer Phil Collins Announces Retirement," Huffington Post, 3/8/11).
