Phil Collins was playing his drum sticks when it all started, Genesis would not have followed the direction they took, if he wasn’t pushed out from his drum set. Collins replaced Peter Gabriel on the microphone, becoming the new lead singer of Genesis. Funny thing is, Collins refused to in the first place, saying “I didn’t want to not be the drummer, this is what I did. This was my territory. ‘Don’t send me out there with the microphone!’ I didn’t want to do that!”.
