Phil Collins and his Genesis bandmates have taken their final bow.

 

Last year, the former Genesis drummer appeared on the British television show, BBC Breakfast, where he discussed his declining health.




He admitted that he could no longer hold a drumstick. “No [I can’t still play the drums]. I’d love to. But I mean, I can barely hold a stick with this hand.”

 

He gave more information about his health.

“I’m kind of physically challenged a bit, which is very frustrating because I’d love to be playing up there with my son…”

 

He added: I think it is putting it to bed because we are all men of our age.

“I think yeah, I think just generally for me, I don’t know if I want to go out on the road anymore.”

 

Good wishes poured in immediately after seeing his condition, which left fans extremely concerned.

 

After a long hiatus, Phil Collins decided to return to the stage in 2015, but a nasty fall the following year forced him to stop.

The rock star was on the way to the bathroom in his hotel room when he was hit. He had to cancel his tour after getting stitches on a gash near his eye.

 

A statement released at the time said that Phil had a back operation which made it difficult to walk.

Collins had had more issues with his health.

 

He has taken his final bow.

The band played their final concert last night in London’s O2 area.

 

The rock icons are celebrated by fans.

 

Speaking to the crowd, Collins said: “It’s the last stop of our tour, and it’s the last show for Genesis.”

“After tonight we all have to get real jobs.”

Thank you for the good times.
