Phil Collins Open To Genesis Reunion, With One Condition

Phil Collins said he’d take part in a Genesis reunion as long as Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks agreed to have his son, Nic Collins, join them as their drummer. Nic has been touring as part of Collins’ band since he returned to performing last year, which increased speculation that Genesis could also return after an 11-year hiatus. “I wouldn’t say there isn’t not a possibility,” Collins told Rolling Stone in a new interview. “Me, Mike and Tony are pretty close still. I can’t imagine what it would be like if I didn’t play the drums, but anything is possible.” Collins added: “I think that, yeah, if we did anything I think it would have to be with Nic on drums, because I don’t think I’m capable of it. I think their opinion of Nic is high enough for them to take him on board as part of the band.”  Nic said last year that he’d be “ecstatic” if he was invited to become involved. “That Genesis stuff, drumwise, is something else, absolutely unbelievable,” he reflected. “But to be honest, I don’t think there will be another Genesis reunion tour. They did it in 2007 and I doubt it’ll happen again.”
