A small, angry, British performer who merely acts out songs developed in a studio by a group of producers. Occasionally, Collins will pay his agents to spread news about charity donations and civic contributions...none of which were dealt with willingly or directly by Collins. The only motive for which is the ensurance of continuation of record sales and passable public image to dilute the reality of his unabashedly self-centered, ill-willed, simply perverse ways, not to mention his utter lack of musical ability.
Do you listen to Phil Collins?
Who? Bill Collings?
No, Phil Collins!
Oh him. No way, he sucks. My sister went to one of his concerts once and got violently molested by a drunkard who got turned on when Phil started playing pocket pool and groping himself on stage. Hes a real degenerate.

A very successful British drummer. Sadly, despite what people may tell you, he cannot sing and relies on electronic music devices to make his music sound good.
Mr. Collins normally sings out of tune, but his vocal harmonizers and pitch correctors fix all that.

Listen closely to any of his songs (even the Genesis ones) and you'll notice how his voice is always doubled and slightly echoed.

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.

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.

But once again, he is a great drummer...

Here's the deal: Phil Collins can't fucking sing. He's a great drummer, but he just plain can't fucking sing. What he *can* do, however, is apply a cheap 80s reverb filter so that people go ZOMG WHAT A GREAT VOICE!!11! What, you seriously thing think that 'great vocalists' echo when they sing?
"I looooove--oh fuck, someone turn the filter on quick."
