“Because he does so many things brilliantly, and because he’s been so commercially successful, people forget about Phil Collins as a drummer, which is a shame because he's brilliant. The way he composes his parts, and the sounds he gets, it’s truly remarkable.
“He’s playing concert toms on the song Mama, and they sound so unique, so resonant. They don’t have bottoms on them – not a lot of people use them – but Phil really made them sing. It’s a defining sound.
“Just A Job To Do is another great one. Phil made fantastic pop music with Genesis, but it was always interesting for musicians; there were cool grooves and parts that would perk up your ears all the time.
“Phil is almost like John Bonham to me: I hear his personality, his perspective. And, of course, there’s what he did on In The Air Tonight. It's not on this album, but still, everybody knows that drum part by heart. How many people can say they have a fill like that? Ten notes that everybody knows. Phil is a insanely talented drummer.”
