Phil Collins Rehearsing For Possible Comeback Tour

Phil Collins says he's in the midst of rehearsals for a comeback tour. His longtime bassist, Lee Sklar, who says Collins' band from his 2005 tour is back together and tuning up.

"If at the end of three weeks, he feels like it's still got the old mojo, then he'll talk to management and see what they want to do," Sklar told the podcast I'd Hit That.

"Personally, I didn't think we were ever going to play again, and then all of a sudden, I think he's in a better place in his life. His two young sons, I think kind of said to him: 'We've never seen you.' And I think a lot of things came together, where he wants to test the waters."

Blaming chronic back problems for his lack of touring, Collins last toured in 2007 with Genesis, before releasing an album of covers in 2010.

So far no dates have been set for a new tour.
