Now growing up in the eighties, I noticed that people had a sheer hatred of Phil Collins. Both Serious music press and casual listeners of music. They say he was a talent less hack who didn't deserve all the accolades he got. So why was that? - Over exposure, when Collins got famous, he was hired left and right to work as producer and studio musician and basically was everywhere and people were getting tired of him constantly popping up and basically putting his stamp on every single thing in music during the eighties. - The fact that Phil never looked like the major pop star he was, also contributed here. He was just a normal every day English lad, who wore CARDIGANS. How is it possible that such a normal guy can be so big? The fact that his skills as a musician, producer and song writer were the reason WHY he was that omnipresent is less important, it was always a case of "Oh no, not HIM again!" But in recent years I noticed that history is repeating itself here. Here again we have a guy who is omnipresent, has NO ego, behaves normally and is one of the biggest rock stars ever. And yeah, people are going "Man I HATE Dave Grohl, why is he that famous anyway?" So would you consider Dave Grohl the new Phil Collins on account of being over exposed?
