Phil Collins Retires (And Needs A Hug)

I have never been a fan of Phil Collins, I have never cared for Genesis, but this interview of Phil Collins in the UK Telegraph is quite saddening. Collins has announced he wanted to end his music career because of health problems that will prevent him playing the drums again, in particular hearing problems, a dislocated vertebra and a nerve damage in his hands, brought on by spent hunched behind a drum kit.

But his declarations are those of a broken man:

‘I don’t think anyone’s going to miss me’.

‘I look at the MTV Music Awards and I think: ‘I 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. I’m much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely.’

‘It’s hardly surprising that people grew to hate me. I’m sorry that it was all so successful. I honestly didn’t mean it to happen like that’.

What? He is apologizing for his success? That’s ridiculous! He was successful and that was the public’s choice, what would he apologize?
He sounds really depressed, someone should give him a hug.
