Phil Collins was born on 30 January 1951 in Chiswick, London, England


Philip David Charles Collins was born on January 30, 1951 in the borough of Chiswick, London, England. His mother, a talent agent, enrolled young Phil in a stage school, where he studied acting and singing. He was one of the screaming fans in The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night (1964), and played the Artful Dodger in the London stage production of Oliver!. Music soon replaced acting as he took up the drums, inspired as much by British beat bands of the era as legendary jazz drummers Jo Jones and Buddy Rich. 

Collins was hired to handle percussion duties for progressive art-rock band Genesis in 1970, and made his recording debut on their 1971 album Nursery Cryme. The drummer first sang lead on "More Fool Me," which appeared on Genesis' Selling England by the Pound (1973). Following lead vocalist Peter Gabriel's departure in 1975, the band auditioned almost 400 potential replacements before deciding that Collins was the man for the job. A Trick of the Tail (1976), the first Genesis album with Collins as lead singer, became their highest charting album to date, reaching No. 3 in the UK and becoming their first release to crack the top 40 in the U.S.
