Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins’ candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines.
As one of only three musicians to sell over 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but he has never lost his talent for crafting songs that touch listeners around the globe.
This is the story of his epic career, from child actor to one of the most successful songwriters of the pop music era. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on-the-job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Later he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel, and compose the songs that would rocket him to international solo fame with the release of Face Value and ‘In the Air Tonight’.
Whether he’s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, playing twice at Live Aid, or writing the Oscar-winning music for Disney’s smash-hit animated film Tarzan, Collins keeps it intimate and his storytelling gift never wavers.

Raw, honest, sad and funny. Loved it!
A very honest and open insight into an amazing artist, performer and creator of the music from the last 40 years.
In concert he is a performer, in his pages of his life he is relaxed and comical through his ups and downs.
Family and music are the key elements which makes this a page turner.
If you love music read it.
If you want a laugh indulge in it
If you live music history there is none better
Get to understand the man behind the drums, in front of the band along side his family. Plus he feels like family as we all have a part of Phil in our lives.
I've read some of it in a pre release and it’s great.
