Phil Collins Is Up For A Genesis Reunion

Phil Collins is interested in a Genesis reunion with his teenage son on drums.

Phil Collins came out of retirement last year (17) and is currently touring with his son Nicholas on his Not Dead Yet! tour, and he’s so impressed with the kid’s kit skills, he insists he’s good enough to hit the road with his old band, which last performed together over a decade ago.

“I wouldn’t say there isn’t not a possibility,” he tells Rolling Stone when asked about a Genesis reunion. “Me, Mike (Rutherford) and Tony (Banks) are pretty close still. I can’t imagine what it would be like if I didn’t play the drums, but anything is possible.”

The veteran musician, who had to hang up his drumsticks due to injury, admits his former bandmates are just as impressed with his son’s skills after catching a Collins concert last year (17).

“They both were raving about Nick,” he says. “Mike made the appropriate comment of, ‘He just gets it. He just gets what is needed and what is required and why you’re doing this for that song’.

“I thought that was a wonderful thing to say. He was 16 at that point. I think that, yeah, if we did anything I think it would have to be with Nick on drums because I don’t think I’m capable of it. I think their opinion of Nick is high enough for them to take him onboard as part of the band.”

And his son is clearly up for the gig – he told Rolling Stone in January, 2017 that he would be “ecstatic” if he was ever called on to perform with Genesis.

“That Genesis stuff, drumwise, is something else; absolutely unbelievable,” he said. “But to be honest, I don’t think there will be another Genesis reunion tour. They did it in 2007 and I doubt it’ll happen again.”
