An appreciation of PHIL COLLINS: You’re not worthy

::applauds the writer of this article::
Amen, Mr. Thompson, amen!! This blogger took the words right out of my mouth.
Honestly, I couldn’t have said it better myself!
Those who are petitioning against Phil’s impending comeback, need to seriously re-examine his career & body of work well beyond that of “Sussudio” & “One More Night” to rediscover what an amazing musician & human being Phil Collins truly is.
Need I remind his detractors that during each of his tours from But Seriously through his Final Farewell tours, Phil raised money for the local homeless shelters in each location he played in & then personally matched the donation. How many other rock musicians can say they’ve done that?
On that note, please enjoy this “guest post”. It’s definitely well worth the read. 😊
