'All the perks but none of the advantages!' the former Genesis star says when recalling how he was invited by the hooker.
Rocker Phil Collins cringed when he was recognized by a prostitute in Amsterdam, Holland - she was such a huge fan, she offered him her services for free. The former Genesis star was in the city to perform a concert with the band when he decided to take a stroll through the infamous red light district during a night out.
Collins was taken aback when one hooker realized who he was and asked him to join her for free sex - but he swiftly turned down the offer.
He says, "We were on tour with Genesis. Just after a meal we were walking down the red light district back to the hotel and a very attractive woman rushed out. She said, 'Phil, come in, come in, for you no charge!' I thought 'Of all the times to get recognised and you can't do anything about it.' All the perks but none of the advantages!"
