Last night, Phil Collins went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his singles collection, his memoir, and his upcoming European tour dates. And oh yeah, to bring down the house with an amazing performance of “In the Air Tonight.”
Popping collars and melting faces, Phil Collins is back! The 65-year-old clearly still has a lot left in the tank. I could listen to that drum fill every day for the rest of my life, and it would still make me want to run through a goddamn brick wall. I don’t even know why hospitals shell out all that money for defibrillators. All they have to do is cue up that drum fill and patients will sit right up like they’re the f*cking Undertaker.
Collins also debunked the ridiculous myth that “In the Air Tonight” is about Collins witnessing someone let a man drown.
