A former co-worker and friend of mine, likes to come up with a "Short List of Reasons to Live" every week. I think we should come up with a short list of people who should quit the music business.

This was a summer list. It'll be interesting how short this list gets in the fall and winter seasons.

I would like to contribute to the short list of people who should quit the music business list. Jennifer Lopez can't sing or act. She makes a living off being a notorious b*tch and showing her behind. She stinks. She is not as gorgeous as most of us guys claim she is. She sucks! Thanks, man. I feel better.

My number one nomination for people who should quit the music business list. Phil Collins - he was ok-ish as the drummer behind the drumkit of Genesis....just. But we've surely had enough of him with or without his blooming jacket! He became lead singer with Genesis with dire consequences for a once reasonable rock band and for some reason unknown to most went on to make megga dosh not only as a solo singing artist but appearing in films as well!! Why??? Talentless being his greatest talent ~ all must surely agree that good looks come pretty low on the menu for this greasy suited man of dubious vocal quality. Acting skills are nothing but robotic and wooden. Singing - a warbly trebly voice with the overtones of rabbits being strangled for breakfast. To add insult to injury the guy insists also on contaminating the recordings of others or "friends" ~ one can only say with friends like him who needs enemies? Many releases by the artist John Martyn serving as one example. More irritating and sending the nerves on edge with greater effect than a nail scraping down a blackboard I really truly think he's made enough money (so add greed to the list of qualifying criteria) for no real talent and we've basically suffered enough. Quit now Phil Collins! If not maybe a concrete overcoat will make up for the lack of jacket and persuade him otherwise.

Well Dont Take it - Leave It! Fact remains Phil Collins is still a jumped up little slime suit of an ugly balding wooden non actor with a nausiatingly irritating goat call of a thing called a "voice". YES! I CAN honestly say that I dont sit on edge waiting the hear those tedious predictable pretentious drums sound again zzzzzzzzz Like watching paint dry, embodying crass emotive cliche as they are struck and as the entire song does throughout. NO! my heart does not mourn during Separate Lives - I like most people have enough real loss, bad events and sad passings whatever to make me aware I have feelings without having to turn to media crap like this to artificially kick them into gear and remind me Im human and/or alive (tho its debatable if any Phil Collins fans are either) - The further I have a Separate Life from not only Phil Collins but people who like such garbage the better. Its not that I dont like Take Me Home - I loathe it and as for calming Im sure Id find more calm admist a gaggle of neurotic geese being given enemas for half and hour aboard the sinking Titanic than I would in a mere nano second of P. Collins exercising his larynx within earshot - Are you insane, deaf , devoid of any natural/genuine emotion AND obsessed with J.LO? Perhaps Craniosacral therpay might help? Good Luck!
Not only do I hate J LO, but also Phil Imin - September 03, 2003 - Report this comment
Dude, if you can't take sarcasm, you have bigger issues than hating Phil Collins. What's with the sermons? What are you trying to prove with the overly descriptive paragraphs? I am not obsessed with J. Lo. I do hate her. I like Phil Collins but I am not obsessed with him. You are entitled to your own opinion but what's with the name calling and psychoanalysis? Stop, put down the booze, calm down and get a life.
