Of his cinderella first solo album "Face Value" forty years ago, Phil Collins recalls the real-life betrayal and heartbreak which inspired "In the Air Tonight", "I Missed Again"; and why he did not include another original, "How Can You Sit There?", on Face Value nor it's follow up, Hello I Must Be Going, but opted instead to give it to the soundtrack of the 1984 movie Against All Odds, going on to become Phil Collins' first #1 hit.

with 100,000 people for Live Aid US, I stood back of center stage about ten feet behind Phil Collins who was seated at a black grand piano. Beside me looking over his 3"x 5" recipe cards with notes for stage announcements stood Jack Nicholson. Collins, fresh off the Concorde supersonic jet which had conveyed him from his earlier performance at the London Live Aid concert, sang his surprise movie hit "Against All Odds" and then "the other song I know on piano"...

Until "No Jacket Required"in February 1985, Phil Collins was best known as the drummer who surprised everyone by more than capably replacing band mate Peter Gabriel as the lead singer for Genesis.

It happened to Elton John, Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Sting, and most recently U2: US radio and music video outlets overplaying the hits by these most popular musicians, in the programmers' misguided attempts at gaining a bigger audience. But the unfortunate by-product is that these listeners/viewers burn out on the saturation repetition to the peril of the musicians, and the predictable backlash unfortunately is misdirected at the musicians, who had no control over how their songs were appropriated. No one on the planet knows this better now than my guest Phil Collins.
