After more than a decade of drumming with Genesis - plus six years of serving as their lead singer following the departure of Peter Gabriel - Face Value was Phil's first step into the solo spotlight. Inspired by deeply personal life experiences, including a recent divorce, the album became both a critical and commercial sensation. Hit singles included "I Missed Again" and the worldwide No. 1 hit/air-drumming classic "In the Air Tonight." Altogether, Face Value sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and set Collins up as one of the decade's most ubiquitous musical superstars.
