"... I'd love to but you know, I mean, I can barely hold a stick with this hand. So there are certain physical things that get in the way," Phil Collins said.
 

Music band Genesis will begin its reunion tour in October but their singer-drummer Phil Collins will not be a part of it.

 
"I'm kind of physically challenged a bit which is very frustrating because I'd love to be playing up there with my son (Nic Collins)," Collins reportedly explained to BBC Breakfast about his impending absence.

"... I'd love to but you know, I mean, I can barely hold a stick with this hand. So there are certain physical things that get in the way," he added.


"We're all men of our age, and I think to some extent, I think it probably is putting it to bed. I think yeah, I think just generally for me, I don't know if I want to go out on the road anymore," said the star drummer, hinting that this could be their last tour ever.
