PHIL Collins has warned his comeback may not see him match his solo career in which he became one of the top five musicians of all time.
Although he promises to be much better than anything recorded since 2000, Collins asks fans to be patient.
Collins said: “Remember how with You Can’t Hurry Love I made a record that was better than anything Tamla Motown ever put out and forced Diana Ross to change her name?
“This time round I’ll probably just eclipse a bit of the Motown canon, such as all the stuff by Stevie Wonder. I am still semi-retired, after all.”
He added: “And remember that thing I did of not requiring people to wear a jacket? Now I’ll probably require it a bit.”
Collins also hopes to restart his film career, but warned that if he was to star in a remake of The Long Good Friday it may end up being only as good as The Godfather.
