An 80s/90s pop artist, vocalist, drummer, and lead singer for the progressive/arena rock band Genesis. He is British, has a great voice, and has been featured in movie soundtracks and has many successful best-selling albums. And NO, the people who by them aren't faggots and retards!
Phil Collins is a great music artist. There is nothing wrong with him at all.

My answer to some of "definitions" already here:

"Mr. Collins normally sings out of tune, but his vocal harmonizers and pitch correctors fix all that."
No- go listen to one of his live performances, he is RIGHT on pitch every single time.

"Listen closely to any of his songs (even the Genesis ones) and you'll notice how his voice is always doubled and slightly echoed."
Yeah, that's called singing harmony you dunce. You sing a song two times, once in the melody and once in the harmony. Then you overlay the two and you get something that sounds wonderful.

"On the song "In the Air Tonight", about 2 minutes into the track, the filters are tweaked so that there are 3 versions of his voice singing at the same time - the 'normal' filtered version, a comical low pitched version, and his real voice. The low, weak, screechy, high voice in the background is his real singing voice."
Yeah, once again- three times recorded to make a harmony.

"Oh and FYI, the 'drum solo' on "In the Air..." was done on a drum machine, so I really don't know how it is considered a solo when a machine is playing it throughout the whole song."
If you've ever watched a Collins documentary, he explains why he did so- because he wanted to keep a constant beat and anyone good drummer would have tweaked it and detracted attention from the lyrics.

"But once again, he is a great drummer..."
Yes, yes he is.

Phil Collins is not a fag, he's not stupid, he is sincere, humble, and a fantastic singer with a great voice and perfect pitch.
Person 1: Dude. Phil Collins CANT sing but he is a great drummer.
Person 2: Oh really? I'd like to hear you sing in perfect pitch- both the harmony and the melody.

To pause, during sex, and beat out the "In the Air Tonight" drum fill on your partner's ass.
Guy 1 - "So, how'd last night go?"
Guy 2 - "As it turns out, she was pretty boring in bed. I had to stop and Phil Collins her to pump myself up."
Guy 1 - "Too bad. At least she looks good."

A character from Trailer Park Boys. Phil Collins is named after a British guy nobody cares about. Phil is a local cheeseburger enthusiast and manages a motel. He gets increasingly mad when one stares at his rather large gut. Phil is often seen selling mackerel and trout in liquor store parking lots. He also owns a mobile cheeseburger shop with his boys called the Dirty Burger.
Bubbles: "Who do I know the greasy bastard from? Holy fuck boys, it's Phil Collins!"

Phil: "Hey Bubbles. wanna buy some trout?"

It's a drink made by drinking a Tom Collins and a Cosmopolitan at the same time, from two different glasses, from two straws. The combination of those two drinks results in a Phil Collins
After drinking two Phil Collins I ended up all wet.

A British musician, singer and songwriter. Although Phil produced some cheesy pop songs in his career, as well as satires in South Park and American Psycho having turned him into a punchline / easy target of sorts today, that should never eclipse the fact that he's a solid vocalist and, most importantly, one of the most talented drummers in rock history.
Kinda funny that Phil Collins' incredibly inventive, complex drumming with Genesis is often overlooked because of the drum fill of "In the Air Tonight"
