Phil Collins, Genesis drummer and solo star, has revealed that when he and Macca played the Party at the Palace for Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee in 2002, Paul annoyed him. Speaking to the Sunday Times promote his memoir 'Not Dead Yet', Phil revealed an encounter which has left him feeling a little sour towards Paul.
"I think maybe I should just brush it under the carpet and forget about it and move on, but it did happen."
"He's been in touch about it because he was upset. I certainly didn't get any flowers from him; I got more of a 'Let's just get on with our lives.' And I'm sorry he's upset that I kinda said something nasty about him -- well, it wasn't really nasty. If people don't tell people that sometimes their attitude could be a bit better then you're not gonna get any better, y'know?"
Phil never revealed exactly what Paul said in the e-mail, but we can probably imagine it was mostly confusion as to why Phil never said anything about this to him before. The original quote from Paul, was, correct. Little Phil IS (or was, he may not be any more) a Beatles fan. He is seen briefly as a 10 year old in the audience in the concert scene in A Hard Day's Night.
