The interview revealed that he is recovering from back surgery, and that his doctor told him "That my vital signs were all there. He said to me, 'If you want to play drums again, all you have to do is practice.'"
Collins says that last year, he had rehearsed with former members of his solo band, including bassist Lee Sklar. Drummer Jason Bonham filled in for Collins' long time touring drummer Chester Thompson (which is ironic, as Collins filled in for Bonham's father John at the famously uneven Led Zeppelin reunion performance at Live Aid in 1985). But they only worked together for three weeks.
As far as a Genesis reunion, Collins said he wanted to go out on his own first: "Let's start with this [solo] bit first. I love the guys. I would just prefer to do this first. For now, let's just see how this goes." Read more here.
The longstanding New Year's Eve television special has tapped Underwood as the headliner for this year's broadcast that will be taking place live from Times Square in New York City.
Carrie had the following to say about headlining the event, "There's nowhere else I'd rather be than New York's Times Square, one of the most magical places in the world, to ring in the New Year. It's going to be a memorable night, and I can't wait to celebrate with the world!"
The broadcast's host Ryan Seacrest adds, "The first time I heard Carrie sing, I knew she would be a superstar, and each year she continues to dominate the charts. I can't wait to see her rock Times Square and ring in 2016 as our headliner."
The singer delivered the tune during a private 7-song mini-concert at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on September 30 to celebrate the attendance record of the exhibit The Taylor Swift Experience.
"I'm going to play you a song," introduced Swift, "that I wrote about a relationship that I was in that the number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety, because it felt very fragile, it felt very tentative. And it always felt like, 'Okay what's the next roadblock? What's the next thing that's gonna deter this? How long do we have before this turns into just an awful mess and we break up - is it a month, is it three days?'"
"And so I think a lot of relationships can be very solid and that's kind of what you hope for - solid and healthy - but that's not always what you get. And it doesn't mean that it's not special and extraordinary just to have a relationship that's fragile and somehow meaningful in that fragility."
Swift wraps up the North American leg of her 1989 world tour in Miami on October 31 before heading to the Far East for shows next month in Singapore, China and Australia. Watch the acoustic performance here.
The rapper turned food show host posted a photo of himself in the hospital bed and seemed like he was in good spirits. Bronson captioned the picture, "Well, this Alaska trip turned into me having emergency surgery."
The posts leading up to the hospital photo showed an array of different dishes the Vice Records artist sampled. He tasted raw and cooked whale, baked whitefish with rendered sea oil, and caribou stew.
Some fans reacted negatively to Action Bronson trying the exotic foods and he called them out on Twitter. Bronson wrote, "Don't ever knock someone else's heritage and what they eat just because it's not familiar to you. Native people live off the land, try it."
Take a look at some of Bronson's Instagram photos leading up to his hospitalization here.

Perry was pulled from the crowd and brought to center stage as Madonna and her dancers delivered the final song of the show's regular set. Madonna spanked and grinded on Perry as the tune wrapped up, with Katy saying "Thanks, Mom!"
Madonna then thanked her guest and offered her a drink from a banana flask to mark the occasion. "Sharing a Banana with Katy Perry‼," posted Madonna after the concert. "Highlight of my show at the Forum!"
"Well, that was unrehearsed," Perry tweeted. "ILY @madonna my QUEEN." Madonna will wrap up the North American leg of her Rebel Heart tour on October 29 in San Diego, CA. She'll return to live action in January with dates in Mexico and more US shows. Watch the performance here.

"I got super emotional with the funeral footage," Adele told i-D in a recently published interview. "But I wasn't really that into the saved voicemails and stuff like that. I felt like I was intruding so I actually felt a little bit uncomfortable and that ruined it for me. I love watching her, but I kind of wish I hadn't seen it. But you know, I love Amy. I always have, I always will." Read more here.
"We'd like to bring out one of my heroes, one of the band's heroes, to help us with this next tune," said Bono. "Will you welcome to the stage, the High-Flying Bird himself, Noel Gallagher."

The Capitol Hill-located thrift store has been in the neighborhood since 1996. A spokesperson for the company cited "unfortunate, certain business conditions" that have made it impossible to continue leasing the space, which has been on a month-to-month basis for some time.

Like "What Do U Mean" and "Sorry," Skrillex produced the track. Halsey recently performed on BBC 1 Radio, where she sang a few tracks off her own album, Badlands. Included in that set was a mashup of The Weeknd and Justin Bieber that quickly grabbed the Internet's attention.

The colorful parody video was directed by Diane Martel and features the band performing alongside of cardboard cut-outs of celebs including a very young Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, Elvis Presley, Ed Sheeran and more.
According to a press release the clip delivers the "post-ironic self-indulgent performance parodies rock and roll in the digital age and the self-constructed mythology of the iPhone generation."
Frontman Matthew Healy released the following statement about the video: 'With 'Love Me' we wanted to capture the neon-hued enthralling acquisition of success and excess, the screaming momentum, the sexy daze. Everything is REDICULOUS! But, is it? The only art worth any investment is art that makes one feel personally addressed. A simple truth, or set of truths, that galvanises an awareness and passion within an individual and in doing so immerses the individual into a sense of shared experience and community founded upon that same personal connection or experience. Too many artists care what others think. We are for the 'community'! A non-linear observation on everything that has been and what will become. A lack of understanding of the world we are living in. The post-ironic notion of the modern world. Selfie mythologizing. Creating how we consume. Fragments of culture. Not settling for what you're given. WE'VE JUST COME TO REPRESENT A DECLINE IN THE STANDARDS OF WHAT WE ACCEPT." Watch the video here.
The video shows Rick Ross living the high life. He travels in private jets, hangs out with players from the Houston Texans, and is driven around in his luxurious whip while his fiancee Lira Galore keeps count of his stacks of cash. After all, what's the point of having it all if you can't share it with someone?
Previously, Ross released his remixes to "White Iverson" and "Stick Talk" from the Black Dollar project. These latest music deliveries are just to tide fans over until his album Black Market is ready to be shared with the world. There's no official date as to when that will be. Watch the new video here.

Mountains - this was one of the last tunes I wrote for the project (Panorama Motel) - it was months after the split. I was starting to come around a bit; get out and enjoy Colorado, meet new people, "find myself" again as it were. Around the time I wrote "Mountains," I was hanging out quite a bit with this free-spirited, peace-and-love neo-hippy type in Boulder, who turned out to be a very positive influence on me - good for my general well-being and overall "getting over" phase. She also sort of forced me into listening to upbeat music again, which was a big part of deciding to write an upbeat beach/Afro-Pop-ish tune like "Mountains."
And of course, I was born and raised in the Colorado mountains, so I guess I've always thought of that as square one, the place you return to when everything is falling apart. Although the song is written/sung to a girl, it was essentially a pep-talk for myself. The opening few lines, "Maybe your bones are heavy, maybe your hands are weak, maybe you're walking the tightrope, maybe you're walking the plank. Maybe you're stuck in motion, maybe you're buried deep, but baby despair don't suit you, and you don't need it anyway..." - I was really directing all of that at myself.
And I think I had decided to have a llama star in the music video before the song had even been fully-written. ;-)
