Phil Collins, forced into retirement as a drummer due to a debilitating nerve condition, says a back surgery he recently underwent is providing so much relief that he thinks he will be back at it soon. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Collins said, 'My back and hips were just shot. The doctor had to take my back apart and unscramble the mess. After the surgery, tough, the doctor said my vital signs were all there.' WHile he looks forward to the prospect of playing drums again, he is taking a wait-and-see approach on the subject of a Genesis reunion, saying, 'Let's start with this bit first.'
Speaking with Uncut, drummer Don Henley suggested that the possibility the Eagles have done their last gig is real. Henley, wo has gotten a good response to his solo Country album, does not dismiss the possibility of future albums or tours but says no plans of any kind are in the works involving him and the other members of the group.
