Phil Collins

Phil is 68 this week. His career needs no introduction, but one facts you may not know is that his solo debut album, Face Value spent the most weeks on the chart for a studio album which charted in the 80s, it have done, to date, 275 weeks and only beaten by nine other albums ever.

Most of the tracks on that album were inspired by his divorce from his first wife Andrea Bertorelli in 1980. The first single from that album was In the Air Tonight which is all about the anger he felt at the time. The other hit singles were I Missed Again, If Leaving Me Is Easy and Thru’ These Walls. The final single release, which failed to chart was, Don’t Let Him Steal Your Heart Away and is a fantastic song.

If you don’t know it, listen and watch here.
