Style Icons: Male »Phil Collins

phil collinsAs the unexpected master of the adult contemporary AM gold radio hit, Phil Collins has, in hindsight, felt the wrath that anything that grows too popular is dealt. Some see his easy listening sound as a curse, though (as you'll read in this week's song pick) I think enough time has passed for Collins to be re evaluated by a new generation, a generation familiar with his songs and respectfully nostalgic for their borderline cheesy sentimentality.

I personally grew far more fond of the man after listening to his conversation with Starlee Kine of This American Life. Unlike so many celebrities who can be monstrously warped by fame, he came off as a reasonable and downright lovable guy with a good heart and a little bit of wisdom to share.
