Phil Collins Sparks Health Concern During TV Appearance | 22 Words

Phil Collins has sparked concern after his recent TV appearance...

On Thursday, the former Genesis drummer appeared on the British television show, BBC Breakfast, where he discussed his declining health.


During the emotional interview, the seventy-year-old admitted that he could "barely hold a drumstick" anymore.

"No [I can't still play the drums]. I'd love to. But I mean, I can barely hold a stick with this hand."

He continued, giving further details about his health:


"I'm kind of physically challenged a bit, which is very frustrating because I'd love to be playing up there with my son..."

He later added: "We're all men of our age, and I think to some extent, I think it probably is putting it to bed. I think yeah, I think just generally for me, I don't know if I want to go out on the road anymore."

Of course, fans on Twitter were left extremely concerned after seeing his condition, with well wishes pouring in almost immediately.

Phil Collins announced his comeback tour back in 2015 after a long hiatus, but a nasty fall the following year forced him to halt his dreams of being back on the road.

The rockstar took a hard hit when he was on the way to the bathroom in his hotel room. He was forced to get stitches on a gash near his eye and had to cancel the highly-anticipated tour.

"Phil suffers from 'drop foot' as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk," a statement released at the time read.

Ever since then, Collins had had further issues with his health.

Our thoughts are with him.
