El Paso, (Entravision). Phil Collins tells the Yorkshire Post that he never wanted to be the lead singer of Genesis, but had to after Peter Gabriel left. “It was the last thing I wanted. I liked being a drummer and that’s what I wanted to do. But when Peter left we couldn’t find another singer and so the rest of the band convinced me to do it. “There really wasn’t another option and I drew the short straw. I often wonder what life would have been like if Peter hadn’t left and I had stayed playing the drums.”
