Phil Collins turned 58 this week. The talented drummer, pianist, and vocalist got his first break in his late teens, when he became a replacement drummer with Genesis in 1970. After singr Peter Gabriel left in 1974, the group auditioned over 400 singers before finally deciding that Collins would replace him.
In 1986, Genesis hit number one on the U.S. singles chart with "Invisible Touch", and had several other number one albums in the U.K. as well. Once he went on his own, Collins had seven number one hits, including "A Groovy Kind Of Love". He's also played a number of acting roles in "Oliver", "Buster" and "Miami Vice".
Happy B-day, Phil.
Enjoy the music!
