Peter Gabriel Reacts To Phil Collins Comeback Plans

(Classic Rock) Peter Gabriel is glad that former Genesis bandmate Phil Collins is considering coming out of retirement. But while he won't rule out a classic lineup reunion of the influential prog band, he's not fully convinced it will ever happen.

Collins retired in 2011 but last month suggested he was reconsidering the decision, saying: "I have started thinking about doing new stuff. Some shows again, even with Genesis. Everything is possible."

Asked what he thinks of his former colleague's comments, Gabriel tells Rolling Stone: "Good! I think he got himself into a bit of a hole, and that's great news he's coming out of it. It doesn't have to involve work but if it does, that's a great indicator."

His reaction leads to the inevitable question about a Genesis reunion, with the possibility having been raised on several occasions over the last decade. Gabriel replies: "It's never been ruled out. I'm trying to picture a time when it would top my priorities list though." He had more to say about it.
