Phil Collins: 'Genesis Reunion Will Never Happen'

Phil Collins has ruled out a reunion of the classic Genesis line-up because he can never play the drums again.

The Against All Odds hitmaker has hung up his cymbals for good because nerve damage in his elbow means he can no longer keep a strong grip on his sticks.

He is adamant his health means there will never be a comeback for Genesis with him on the drummer's stool and Peter Gabriel singing, and he is also convinced Gabriel would not be interested in performing any tracks the band wrote after he left in 1975.

Collins tells Uncut magazine, "There's this incessant desire for it to happen. But I often think, 'Have people thought it through?' It's not as if you're going to get Peter as singer, me as drummer. I can't play any more, so it's never going to happen. But even if it could, you're not going to get Peter singing I Can't Dance or Invisible Touch or Mama."
