1. Read Phil Collins’ biography and answer the questions.

Phil Collins spent most of his early entertainment life as a young actor, and played the Artful Dodger in the West End production of "Oliver!" His interest in music and drumming began at school, where he became the drummer with school band The Real Thing. His next band, Flaming Youth recorded an album to some critical acclaim, although the group disbanded shortly afterwards. Collins later successfully auditioned for Genesis, taking over on vocals from Peter Gabriel in 1975.

After separating from his first wife, Collins recorded his first solo LP, "Face Value". The album was well received, and Collins became a household name after the song "In the Air Tonight" was featured in the American TV series "Miami Vice". He then had a guest appearance on the series, playing a game show host. His third LP, "No Jacket Required", produced multiple chart hits and won many awards.

Collins continues to be an active musician and entertainer, producing and guesting on many albums, ranging from Gary Brooker and Camel (Peter Frampton's old band) to Eric Clapton. His current projects include his solo career as a vocalist, and touring with the reunited Genesis and his Swing Band.
