The former Genesis star can't even hold his sticks after years of sitting in front of a drumkit.
Collins, 58, whose hits include "In The Air Tonight", said: 'After playing drums for 50 years, I've had to stop.
'My vertebrae have been crushing my spinal cord because of the position I drum in.
It comes from years of playing. I can't even hold the sticks properly without it being painful, I even used to tape the sticks to my hands to get through.'
But this is not the end of his music career, as Collins told fans: 'Don't worry, I can still sing.'
