Phil Collins Has Apparently Quit the Music Business [VIDEO]

Phil Collins has talked a lot about retiring from performing recently, mostly because of a neck and spinal cord injury that basically makes it impossible for him to play the drums like he used to, because he can’t grip the sticks. And also because the hearing in his left ear is shot.

But in a new interview, it sounds like he’s COMPLETELY retiring from the music business. He sounds pretty depressed in general.

He tells “FHM” magazine, quote, “It’s a good time to stop.  I don’t really belong to that world and I don’t think anyone’s going to miss me.  I’m much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely.

“I look at the ‘MTV [Video] Music Awards’ and I think:  ‘I can’t be in the same business as this.'”

He adds, quote, “I’m sorry that it was all so successful.  I honestly didn’t mean it to happen like that.  It’s hardly surprising that people grew to hate me.”

(Uh…can someone check in on Phil and make sure he’s OK? Phil admitted not too long ago that he’s had suicidal thoughts…but he added, quote, “I wouldn’t do that to the children.”)

So what’s next for Phil?

He says, quote, “I’ll go on a mysterious biking holiday and never return. That would be a great way to end the story, wouldn’t it?”

(No. That would be an alarming way to end the story. A much better way would be for Phil to retire and devote his life to his new passion:  The Battle of the Alamo. Seriously. Phil has “hundreds” of cannonballs, documents and other Alamo-related stuff at his crib in Switzerland. He’s even writing a book about the Alamo! Phil also claims he has photographed PARANORMAL ACTIVITY at the Alamo and believes he may have fought there in a previous life. Don’t believe me? See for yourself HERE!)

How can Phil be so depressed when he will always have this INCREDIBLE video:
