Phil Collins Retires: 'I Don't Think Anyone's Going to Miss Me'

Former Genesis drummer and solo star Phil Collins has indicated that he is calling it quits from music.

The 60-year-old has hearing problems and nerve damage in his hands, and says in an interview, "I don't think anyone's going to miss me... I look at the MTV Music Awards and I think, 'I can't be in the same business as this.'"

Collins has expressed this disinterest in making new music before: in October, he told Billboard.com, "I'm not anticipating doing anything else. If I do write songs...I don't know about putting them out on an album or anything like that. I don't really have the desire to do that now."
