What led Phil Collins to the wheelchair?
In 2018, Phil Collins tripped and hit his head on his way to his hotel bathroom. Subsequently, he was rushed to the hospital. Since then, Phil Collins’ health has been a shared concern of his fans.
Moreover, it was previously disclosed that the 68-year-old singer suffered from drop foot as a result of an earlier operation. Phil Collins talked about this at a press conference. “I had back surgery a year ago. I’d messed my hips up as well. That was a year ago and as of now I have a dropped foot, which means I have no feeling in it. I walk with a cane, but I’m hoping that gets better.”
Apart from concerns over his health, fans of Phil Collins were devasted when he announced his retirement in 2011. “After a successful operation on my neck, my hands still can’t function normally. Maybe in a year or so it will change, but for now it is impossible for me to play drums or piano. I am not in any “distressed” state; stuff happens in life.”
But everyone was thrilled as they got to know about his ‘Not Dead Yet’ tour. For the next installment of the tour, he will be in Buffalo on Thursday.
