Phil Collins Forced To Quit Drumming

(Rock Radio) Phil Collins will never play drums again, he has revealed. The Genesis star, who moved from the drum stool to the main mic when Peter Gabriel left the band in 1975, says the position he's used while playing over the years has forced his vertebrae together, crushing his spine.

And in recent times he's resorted to taping drumsticks to his hands, because he can't grip them any more.

Speaking at a charity event Collins, 58, says: "After playing drums for 50 years I've had to stop. My vertebrae has been crushing my spinal cord because of the position I drum in. It comes from years of playing. I can't even hold the sticks properly without it being painful."
