Once upon a time, Phil Collins was just a drummer in a progressive rock 'n' roll band.

Then, their lead singer (rhymes with "Geter Fabriel") went solo, and Phil got his shot.

Now comes the inside track that Genesis might be going back in the studio to record their first new material in well over a decade.

Then, if all goes goes well, a world tour would follow.

To hard core Genesis fans, the ultimate fantasy would be to have Peter back in the band for a tour, but that's going to happen.

Apart from a few one-time performances for charity, the two camps seem happy to do their own thing.

That's all...
