Ad it\'s not just drumming that has become difficult for Phil. To Rolling Stone magazine the 59-year-old musician reveals:
\"I canít let go of the spoon or the knife when I eat. I canít open a car door. I wonít get gruesome with you, but thereís a lot of things I canít do.\"
The left-handed drummer is having an operation soon and he thinks thereís a good chance of it improving over time.
Phil Collins was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with his former Genesis bandmates in March of this year. He had to stop playing altogether in 2009 because of pain to his spinal cord.
