Veteran rocker Phil Collins is about to fall silent, revealing he's quitting the music industry because of health problems.
The former Genesis star hinted he was considering giving up music in a revealing interview to promote his last album Going Back in 2010, and now it appears he has followed through with his retirement plans.
The British star tells Fhm magazine he's struggling with an array of medical issues prompted by years of touring and drumming, including hearing loss and severe nerve damage in his hands.
The rocker also tells Fhm he no longer feels like he belongs in music: "I don't really belong to that world and I don't think anyone's going to miss me. I'm much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely."
Collins accepts many people will not mourn the end of his career, adding, "I'm sorry that it was all so successful. I honestly didn't mean it to happen like that. It's hardly surprising that people grew to hate me."

Phil, your one of the best singers, music artist of all times as far as I am concerned. You have more fans than I think you really know. Im one of your biggest fans. I will always keep listening to your music. We are the same age and I feel we grew up during the same time. The music was much better then than now. We love you Phil. Best to you.
