Phil Collins World Series of Poker

He’s written such great songs as “Sussudio”, “One More Night” and “Against All Odds”.  Phil Collins has had a sick seven number one hits in the United States.  The drummer/vocalist from Genesis went on to enjoy a super successful solo career.  And, no, Phil Collins is NOT playing in this year’s World Series of Poker.  Well, not THAT Phil Collins anyway.
