Phil Collins
I'm nice until I have a reason not to be. I work hard and people sense that. But I'm different things to different people. To the middle-aged housewife I'm some-one who looks like a "little boy lost"; to the people who know only One More Night and Against All Odds, I'm probably this sweet and sensitive guy. But there are many other songs, many other sides. I don't like that sickly sweet image.
Collins quotes
Wait for it, wait for it! Anticipation is half the fun. So I've been told...
Collins
Basically when offering advice to those wanting to make it in the music industry I give fairly simple advice. Sellout and write catchy tunes, it's all for the money and chicks.




Collins Phil quotes
I wish it wasn't like this. I sit and watch stuff on the television, I think, 'Why, why, why.'
Collins Phil
I'm happy to sit behind the drums and let Peter be the singer. If (a reunion) happens, I'll be there. If it doesn't happen ... it would just be because there are too many things in the way.
Phil Collins quotes
Stewart Copeland is an amazing drummer. I just wish he didn't think he was amazing. Sting is a lovely bloke. We've become friends. I felt honored to be on stage with him at Live Aid.
Phil Collins
The world is in your hands, now use it.
Collins Phil quotes
They're the only ones brave enough to give me these opportunities.
Collins
We're all still good friends. We spent like 30 or 25 years of our life in the same office, ... Just because we don't play in the same band anymore doesn't mean we don't see each other and enjoy each other's company.
Collins Phil
[On his Live Aid appearance with members of Led Zeppelin] They wanted me there early to rehearse the old Zeppelin songs, but I couldn't make it and I told them, "Listen, I know the songs. I know them backward and forward." Well, that day the tempos were all over the place, and it may have seemed like it was my fault, because I was the one who hadn't rehearsed, but I would pledge to my dying day that it wasn't me. In fact, it was Tony Thompson who was racing a bit; he was a bit nervous, I guess. It came off because of the magic of being Zeppelin; but I remember in the middle of the thing, I actually thought, How do I get out of here?
Phil Collins
They're rude and not as talented as they think they are. I won't mince words here but they've had a go at me personally.
