This week on Prog-Watch I’m taking a look at the rich and diverse Musical World of Phil Collins! We’ll hear music from Genesis, Brand X, and his solo career, and some of the noteworthy and interesting guest appearances Phil made on records by other artists including some of his Genesis bandmates, Frida, Robert Plant, Howard Jones, and more! Great drumming and singing will abound!
