Phil Collins has admitted that he doesn't like music.

The former Genesis drummer, who retired from music earlier this year due to ongoing health issues, told the Daily Telegraph that he rarely listens to any songs any more.

Even the encouragement of his actress daughter Lily Collins has failed to ignite his enthusiasm recently, he said.



Collins commented:

I actually don't like music that much. I don't listen to music. My youngest daughter, Lily, she’ll play me stuff and I’ll say, 'Wow, that’s great, who’s that?' But, really, no.

.

Collins called time on his 40-year career in March after suffering nerve damage, hearing problems and back pain. He said that was stopping so he could be a full-time father to his two young sons, Nicholas and Matthew.

However, despite the musician's ongoing health issues, Foals have revealed plans for bringing Collins out of retirement.

They said they want the 60-year-old to work with them on new material, declaring: "We'll help him drum again."
