Mr. Collins was most modest. He said that when organisers contacted him about the award, he assumed he would be presenting it, not of receiving it.
"That's something that I never thought I'd be qualified to get, I still don't think I'm qualified to get," he said.
As someone who grew up with the music of greats like Phil Collins, I say he more than deserved this award. He has inspired many great artists of today, and no doubt of tomorrow.
The award is the second this year for Phil, now 59 years old. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past March.
A note to Phil from me directly. Good to see you shine again! -Al
