Collins calls it quits

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

BRI­TISH singer and drum­mer Phil Collins, pic­tured, has taken to his per­sonal web­site to an­nounce his re­tire­ment in a bid to clar­ify re­cent spec­u­la­tion over his ca­reer.

In a post ti­tled Break­ing News, Collins says he is stop­ping mu­sic so he can be a full-time fa­ther to his two young sons ‘‘ on a daily ba­sis’’ – not be­cause of bad re­views, bad press or be­cause he doesn’t ‘‘ feel loved’’.

Collins has sold an es­ti­mated 100 mil­lion al­bums as a solo artist.
