Hmm maybe. I think that drum sound was developed independently at any rate. Collins doesnt mention bowie at all really, so i don't think they had much in the way of connections with each other.
>I wouldn't be surprised that he has no "affinity" for a song that basically amounted to "RIP PRINCE OFF AND GET THIS CRAP ON THE AIR AS FAST AS POSSIBLE".
Lol, yeah not that surprising at all.
Yes the Goldilocks movie story was absolutely hilarious, I couldn't believe that it even happened let alone that they go so far along in the process.
>I don't even remember where Collins actually WAS in it.
Here he is:
In the book he mentions that the scene was originally far longer and Phil had a whole bunch of dialogue that he really liked and he totally nailed it. But Dustin Hoffman didn't like it so Spielberg cut it down and used a shorter version instead that Phil thought was much weaker.
I'm currently listening to "Both Sides" which Phil Considers his best work, and uh... it's basically a full album of We Can't Dance ballads except Phil plays all the instruments and the complexity of the performances reflects that (hope you like soulful synth horns). Sorry Phil I can't get on your side for this one.
