Way Back Wednesday: Five Years Ago this Month We Met Phil Collins on Miami Beach; Evening Was Beginning of Comeback

This month marks five years since we met Phil Collins on the red carpet at a gala on Miami Beach, at the Little Dreams Foundation. We spoke with him, asking if he was making a comeback. He shared this:

“Could be! You know, I mean, I’ve enjoyed it, rehearsals. I got friends back in my band again, you know, some of my band. And Nick’s [Collins’s son] playing drums with us and it sounds fantastic. And so, you know, it’s possible. I’m thinking about it.”

That evening’s events are written about in the opening pages of the music legend’s memoir Not Dead Yet. Last year, CYInterview did an article about the subject, which you can read by clicking here.

Indeed, that night would end up being the beginning of a comeback for Phil Collins. Subsequently, it led to a worldwide music tour, consisting of 97 concerts.
