Phil Collins is one of the most successful songwriters and performers of all time, singing the lead vocals on dozens of hit albums and singles in the UK and the US between 1976 and 2010, either as a solo artist or with Genesis. Collins has been described by Allmusic as “one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the 80s and beyond”. He has won numerous music awards throughout his career, including seven Grammy Awards, six Brit Awards – winning Best British Male three times, three American Music Awards, an Academy Award and two Golden Globes. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis in 2010.
In The Air Tonight was released as Collins first solo single in January 1981. The song was an instant hit, quickly climbing to No.2 on the UK Singles chart. It was also an international hit, peaking at No.19 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and No.1 in the Netherlands. It was later certified Gold and remains on of Collins’ best-known hits; especially for his drum break towards the end, which has been described as “the sleekest, most melodramatic drum break in history”.
