Why we love Phil Collins, and why you should too

From Genesis genius to soul survivor, we track the career of the drum world's first superstar drummer - Phil Collins. Right back to Genesis through to last year's Number One album Going Back, it's all here in our huge 11-page cover feature. We also talk to Phil's percussive partner in crime Chester Thompson and ask drum behemoths Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy and Brann Dailor just why they hold Collins so close to their hearts. We also talk you though Phil's kits down the years from Pearl and Premier to Gretsch and Ludwig, they're all here.
