Phil Collins Considers to Quit Music

Phil Collins

'In the future I think I'll write songs in my basement and never play for anybody,' Phil Collins says.

Phil Collins has warned he will stop releasing albums - because he's tired of critics attacking his music. The former Genesis star had to stop playing his beloved drums in 2009 because years of beatmaking had left him with agonizing back pain.

He is preparing to return to the spotlight with a new album of Motown classics, but insists he may retire from the public eye altogether - to stop industry experts criticizing his records. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "All my life I've put out music and people have criticized it. Why keep doing that? I don't need the money. In the future I think I'll write songs in my basement and never play for anybody."

Phil Collins was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with his Genesis bandmates in early March.

    Hey Phil! Go ahead and quit! Your latest concert in NYC was a total and complete disappointment. You played covers of Motown songs instead of your own music. Wish you disclosed it to the public before I bought the tickets! What a joke!
