Oh boy! Wait till you see this reference. In response to a similar
query, I quote the following:
"The 1977 hit was inspired by a painful incident in Phil
Collin's life--but not one concerning his brother. After
the singer's first wife, Andrea, left him, he poured his
heart into 'In the Air Tonight.' Collins explains:
'People ask me, 'Aren't you embarassed? You're putting
your private life out for all to see.' It's like I
oughtn't to let people see that I was hurt, that I cry,
that I do 'unmanly' things. But I'm not embarrassed by
it.' Collins, 41, wed the former Jill Tavelman in 1984
and no doubt hopes this marriage doesn't end with another
sad song--no matter how many records it sells."
