Publisher's Summary

Phil Collins gained fame as both the drummer and the lead singer for Genesis and continues to enjoy worldwide success today. He's one of only three recording artists who have sold over 100 million albums both as solo artists and separately as principal members of bands - the other two being Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.

Revered as a drummer, he's the only performer of distinction to have appeared at both the UK and US original Live Aid concerts, the creator of numerous worldwide hits, and an Oscar winner for the song 'You'll Be in My Heart' from the Disney film Tarzan.

Phil Collins' life has also been rich with experience outside of music, starting with his career as a child actor, appearing aged 13 as the Artful Dodger in the stage production of Oliver!, through Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Miami Vice and The Band Played On. In his memoir Phil talks honestly about his three failed marriages, his alcoholism and his ill health but also describes the highs and lows of his career and what it is like to work with other rock legends, from Eric Clapton to Robert Plant.

Published to coincide with the release of a singles collection, Not Dead Yet will thrill fans and change minds.

    "No work Required, he does it all for you..."

    My very first audiobook, and not my last, I hope. I'm a Massive fan of Collins and this book gave me everything a fan would want from the man. I did think the early years and later years were more interesting, as his 80's period has has been well documented before, in other works. A sad story, with humour and amazing achievement is my way of briefly summing up the book. I loved the personality of the audiobook, which for me gave it that cheeky Chappy feel... highly recommend.

    "Very telling Biography"

    Phil Collins has been very honest with writing this biography. Some of which must have been very hard to admit to the whole world.
    I enjoyed not only the story, but him reading it. I think it made this book.
    I highly recommend this to anyone who has ever been a Phil Collins fan and for that matter anyone contemplating joining the industry.
    Excellent book

    "So Glad"

    An interesting insight into the life of Phil Collins. This gifted drummer, singer and performer narrates a warts and all history of his life.
    At times, I felt quite sorry for him. Not always enjoyable, but I am sure he may not have enjoyed recalling some of those times either.

    Story
    "Honest, warming and informative…"
    Where does Not Dead Yet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of all my audiobook listens? It's middle of the pack.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What's best for me is how much detail Phil brings to a time that's been paved over by a million interviews and rumours. It's so much the richer for the irony evident in his re-telling of his actual experience of many spectacular times in his career, alongside many luminaries of 70's & 80's music compared to the apocryphal rumours and stereotypes of the music world. Equally as good is the honesty and sobering [literally!] grittiness he brings to the wider span of his life before & after the chart-topping days.


    What does Phil Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    One can hear all of the irony, amusement and bittersweet impact of the journey on Phil himself. It's clearly his tale, told well, and with an audible candour and humour throughout.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "A Fake Look at Something Real." ...I would never make a film of someone's life - it's the worst kind of fiction in my opinion.


    Any additional comments?

    Collins deserves great credit for being so open with so many moments where he doesn't stand to come off well. It's a very involving story made all the richer by it's candour and openness.

    "A must for fans, a captivating book for everyone"

    Never boring, sometimes astonishing and sometimes sad. This book shares a look into the life of Phil Collins. And it's not just for fans either. Mr Collins story gives the listener an understanding why he did what he did, both in his personal and his professional life.
    A big plus is the fact that Phil Collins is narrating it himself!

    "New Respect Indeed."

    Biographies like these are an important read. They help you understand what goes on behind the scenes of life. They help you understand that everyone struggles with "stuff" and understanding this inspires you. I used to think Phil Collins was a pretty good singer for a drummer. He is also a pretty good author for a singer. Well done Philip. Well done.

    Story
    "Well told story of a selfish man."

    I guess it goes with the territory but Mr C tells of a life lived the way he wanted it and could afford easily. Quite a lot of wreckage but his professions of guilt are hardly ever followed up by changed ways. Well read. If you're a fan you will love it. If not, then a few 'tuts' might be heard.

    I was never a huge fan but I certainly am now. not just of the music but this incredibly gifted and hard working man. The stories in this book run parallel with memories I have of the 70's 80's 90's - lots of funny and fascinating anticdotes. well done Phil!

    This book is a tremendous insight to the highs of fame in 80's and 90's and the true cost of the lows. I most certainly highly recommend.

    As a long term Genesis fan this is an autobiography that I have looked forward to. Ironically, perhaps, I was never a huge fan of Phil Collins solo work but I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this whole book. Phil's reading was very engaging and added a special dimension to my experience.
