The German metal band’s Thunder And Lightning recently released a cover of Phil Collins’ 1982 hit, “I Don’t Care Anymore” as a standalone single.
Most of Collins catalog, both from his solo work and Genesis has been covered surprisingly by lots of metal bands. In 2016, Hellyeah released their own version of the same song on their album, Undeniable and used the guitar part by “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott from Damageplan’s attempt in 2004.
“When [producer] Kevin [Churko] got the tracks isolated, he synced them up, and when we listened them, it totally gave me goosebumps,” said Vinnie Paul who played for both Damageplan and Hellyeah as their drummer. “We’ve always felt like he’s been a part of this band since day one. We felt like his energy and his spirit was always with us. And for people to be able to hear him again in 2016 puts a big smile on my face.”
Some of the bands who did covers of Collins’ works includes Disturbed’s “Land of Confusion,” Angra’s cover of “Mama,” Nonpoint’s “In the Air Tonight” and Ten Masked Men’s on “Easy Lover,” Collins’ 1984 hit duet with Earth, Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey. “In the Air Tonight” has also been covered by Three Days Grace and Chris Daughtry.
Collins recently announced he’ll be reuniting with his former colleagues Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks for a 10-date tour of the U.K. and Ireland set for November and December and will be joined by longtime touring guitarist Daryl Stuermer and Collins’ son Nic on drums. Phil Collins also noted he hopes to “play some bits on the tour” himself.
