Phil Collins: I'm not drying up

Phil Collins has insisted that his Motown covers album is not a sign that he's "drying up".
The former Genesis drummer has just released an album of cover versions of songs by artists such as The Temptations and Carole King.
He said it was something he's always wanted to do.
"For me, it's not an album that suggests that I'm drying up. I mean, there was a review that I saw for a Peter Gabriel album. The reviewer said that it's what normally happens when artists get to a certain age, they start drying up with material and they start to cover other people's material. Well, I object your honour.
"I've kind of being doing Motown stuff [already] so for me this has been an album that's been waiting to come out, waiting to be done, all my professional life."
