(Prog) Phil Collins has revealed he would have quit Genesis to join The Who after drummer Keith Moon's death if he'd been asked. Collins held a webchat with fans via the Guardian - and when quizzed whether he'd have considered a move to The Who following the death of Keith Moon, Collins responded: "Absolutely would have joined The Who."

He added: "I would have left Genesis to join The Who. But they've got a great drummer now in Zak Starkey, he's fantastic. Someone with the balls that Keith Moon had."

This week Collins announced a comeback tour for next year and also released his biography Not Dead Yet. And he says while writing it, he discovered much about himself.

Collins continues: "I was reminded harshly about how much I worked. Which didn't seem to be quite like that much when you were doing it, but looking back at it in a lump, yes, it was quite intimidating. You miss out on family.

"The only saving grace is that as my kids have gotten busier themselves, professionally, they have realized that that comes with what you do. They've realized that." Read more here.
