Phil Collins: 'I don't like music'

Phil Collins relies on his daughter Lily to play him new music, photo: AFPPhil Collins, the pop star, has given up listening to music in his retirement.

Neil Diamond, who said last week that the only music he wanted to hear on a Sunday morning was the sound of “the toast popping out of the toaster” is not the only ageing pop star to prefer the sound of silence.

“I actually don’t like music that much,” Phil Collins admits at the Glenfiddich Mojo Awards. “I don’t really listen to music. My youngest daughter, Lily, she’ll play me stuff and I’ll say, 'Wow, that’s great, who’s that? But, really, no.”
