26th-Jun-2011 05:17 am - Sotheby's Part One
Okie dokie, so a long, long, long time ago I once said I was going to post the pages from the Sotheby's Tarzan art catalogue. And seeing as I haven't posted properly in a while, and I love endulging in things that distract me from what I'm really supposed to be doing... here we go

Will be in three parts, because there's a lot...Collapse )

My music career is over, says rock crock Phil Collins (Source)

Phil Collins has indicated that he intends to end his rock career after learning that health problems will prevent him playing the drums again. The 60-year-old star says he feels it is "a good time to stop" making music, adding: "I don't think anyone's going to miss me."

He has hearing problems, a dislocated vertebra and nerve damage in his hands, all brought on by a lifetime spent hunched behind a drum kit.

The songwriter also claims that listeners have grown "sick" of him and that there is no longer a place for him in the current music scene. "I look at the MTV Music Awards and I think: 'I can't be in the same business as this'," Collins says in an interview with FHM magazine. "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.

5th-Jan-2011 10:07 pm - Josh Strickland Interview

PC: Do you look back fondly at your TARZAN tenure?

JS: Absolutely! I can't really complain about it. I mean, it was my first real big gig and for it to be a lead, title character role in a Disney show on Broadway - I'm not gonna complain any! (Laughs.)

PC: How could you, right?

JS: It was so much fun and I met friends for life. You know, it all comes full circle because here I am, now, in New York City, doing The New York Times event for Disney.

PC: Was Phil Collins very involved in the rehearsal process of TARZAN?

JS: Absolutely. During rehearsals, it was all pretty hands-on. He didn't miss one step. Then, he pretty much was there all through every preview and worked out every kink that needed to be worked out and did it all on the fly. You know, it was really, really interesting to see how someone of his stature works and how he brought in all his home studio stuff and moved into our rehearsal space and just worked everyday just like we were working. And, it was really cool to see what he would come up with and how it would all pan out.

PC: Did you have a favorite moment of that process?

JS: Oh, so many.

PC: Maybe a particular song? Maybe one especially for you? Or, especially quickly written?

JS: Well, I don't know if it was for me, but one of the duets in the show - between Kala and Kerchak - he wrote, basically, in one day. It was just like, you know, we needed a song for them to sing together in Act One. And, it was just crazy because he went upstairs and by the end of the afternoon he had it all ready for us to try out in the piano room. So, it's just amazing to me how someone like that can work. We were all astounded by him - and, it's one of my favorite songs in the show.

Phil Collins To Receive Johnny Mercer Award From Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Music legend Phil Collins has been chosen to receive the esteemed Johnny Mercer Award at this year’s Songwriters Hall Of Fame Awards dinner on Thursday, June 17 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Collins will be inducted into the Hall alongside Leonard Cohen, Jackie DeShannon, David Foster, Johnny Mandel, and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White, Philip Bailey, Verdine White, Larry Dunn and Al McKay.

The singer-songwriter, drummer, composer and producer will be honored for his vast contributions to music:  penning radio favorites like “In the Air Tonight,” “Against All Odds,” “Another Day In Paradise,” “Sussudio,” “You Can’t Hurry Love” and “Two Hearts.” Collins also penned songs for the Disney films Tarzan and Brother Bear.” Tarzan’s “You’ll Be In My Heart” won a Golden Globe Award in 1999 for “Best Song Written For A Film.”

“Phil has churned out a massive stream of classic songs that have resonated with audiences around the globe in a career that has won him admiration beyond cultural and linguistic boundaries,” says Songwriter Hall Of Fame Chairman/CEO Hal David. “In our professional community, he is among the most respected musical creators of our generation.” The Johnny Mercer Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and only those who are already inducted can receive it.

Collins is currently wrapping up work on a new album, slated for release in September 2010. Later this month, he’ll be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of the band Genesis.

While bored at work today I started flipping through a magazine and stumbled on this ad. I think I startled a few people when I noticed who was in it...

HAMBURG — Phil Collins is drumming no more, for now.
The former singer and drummer for Genesis told a German newspaper that since he had surgery in April to repair a dislocated vertebra in his neck, he doesn't have feeling in his fingers and isn't able to pick up his sticks.
The 58-year-old musician was quoted by Hamburger Abendblatt on Monday as saying the only way he could drum is if he were to "glue drumsticks to my hands."
But that's not stopped his recording aspirations. He told the newspaper he plans a new CD that will feature covers of 30 songs from the Motown label in 2010.
"I want the songs to sound exactly like the originals," the paper quoted him as saying.
Collins, who lives in Switzerland, was in Hamburg to celebrate the first anniversary of the debut of "Tarzan" the musical. The show features music Collins composed for the 1999 animated Disney film, including the Oscar-winning song "You'll Be in My Heart."
