A representative for Phil Collins has silenced rumors the star is bowing out of the music industry due to health problems.
The former Genesis frontman reportedly hinted about plans to end his career after suffering hearing loss and severe nerve damage in his hands, caused by years of touring and drumming.

Collins said, “It feels like a good time to stop for a while… I don’t really belong to that world and I don’t think anyone’s going to miss me. I’m much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely.”

But a spokesperson is adamant the 60 year old is not done with music just yet, telling People.com, “He is not, has no intention of, retiring.”
