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." --"Walter Scott's Personality Parade," 27 September 1992, _Parade_ in _Sunday Examiner and Chronicle_ Kind of boring huh?
