Phil Collins to retire from music

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."
If anyone wants to know what my other two wishes were, send me a PM.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Ah, I'd only read half of that thread. A lesson for us all.

Things IMCT has taught me:

1. The British can't see Jews.
2. John Mellancamp is racist.
3. The ideal British pancake is similar to what I would call a crepe, but the ideal Heston pancake is similar to a meat-filled Hostess Pie.
4. Tep doesn't read IMCT.
5. A lot of people genuinely liked TGTB&TQ for some reason.
6. Hoy.
7. To beware the mighty Yeti.
8. Always blow on the pie.

I'm going to post the following in this thread so the limeys will actually see it:

I hear that he's not retiring. I hope your day is ruined now, just as mine was.

I just think the headline was amazing. Imagine going on to Time Magazine's website and seeing that headline for real.

No, I mean, that was the Time headline. "Phil Collins Apologizes For Success, Quits Music." That's as amazing and jaw-dropping to me as a NYT headline reading "Reagan Returns From Dead To Win Tight GOP Primary Race With Mitt Romney."
