Phil Collins Considers Writing New Music : ‘I’ll turn the studio on’
Phil Collins has admitted it’s time to start thinking about writing material again.
Collins told Rolling Stone: “It would be dangerous to give too much away. We’re working out a way to make a show special.
“At the moment there won’t be any new material, but we can bring out some songs that we haven’t done, so they’ll appear new”.
Asked about performing Genesis material he says: “We’ll put in a couple, two or three”.
“For a while my excuse has been that I was busy with the book”, he admits.
“Now the book is out, and I can’t be busy with it any more. I think now, apart from getting a little fitter, I’ll have time to turn on the studio on and see what happens”.
Asked about what he thinks about a Genesis reunion, he replies: “Writing the book reminded me how close we were. We’re still great pals."
“Anything can happen, really. I just don’t want to suddenly take the brake off, start flying off and doing things. I want to do things carefully and think about the consequences”.
And despite saying “never say never” he emphasises: “There’s no plans”.
