Phil Collins pulls no punches—about himself, his life, or the ecstasy and heartbreak that’s inspired his music.

In his much-awaited memoir, Not Dead Yet, he tells the story of his epic career, with an auspicious debut at age 11 in a crowd shot from the Beatles’ legendary film A Hard Day’s Night. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on the job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis.

Soon, he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel and begin to stockpile the songs that would rocket him to international fame with the release of Face Value and “In the Air Tonight.” Whether he’s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, or writing the music for Disney’s smash-hit animated Tarzan, Collins’s storytelling chops never waver. And of course he answers the pressing question on everyone’s mind: just what does “Sussudio” mean?
 
Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins’s candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but has never lost his touch at crafting songs from the heart that touch listeners around the globe. That same touch is on magnificent display here, especially as he unfolds his harrowing descent into darkness after his “official” retirement in 2007, and the profound, enduring love that helped save him.

This is Phil Collins as you’ve always known him, but also as you’ve never heard him before.
Con cientos de millones de discos vendidos y una asombrosa capacidad para conectar con la gente, Phil Collins marcó una época en la música pop. Aún no estoy muerto es su autobiografía.

«Tal vez seas un admirador o tal vez te pique la curiosidad sobre ese pesado que no dejaba de salir en las listas de grandes éxitos hace unos treinta años# En cualquier caso, te doy la bienvenida».
Phil Collins

En Aún no estoy muerto Phil Collins nos ofrece una crónica sincera, ocurrente y sin pelos en la lengua de las canciones y los conciertos, los éxitos y los patinazos, los matrimonios y los divorcios, su irrupción en las listas de éxitos y en las portadas de los tabloides. Collins, uno de los tres músicos que ha vendido más de cien millones de discos tanto como integrante de un grupo como en solitario, no ha perdido ni al llegar a lo más alto el talento para crear canciones que emocionan al público de todo el mundo.

Esta es la historia de una trayectoria épica, la de un niño actor que se convierte en uno de los compositores más exitosos de la época del pop. Collins empezó a tocar la batería casi antes de dar sus primeros pasos y aprendió el oficio en los sórdidos y apasionantes bares y clubes nocturnos del Londres de los alocados años sesenta, antes de hacerse con el puesto de batería de Genesis. Con el tiempo daría un paso al frente como cantante tras la marcha de Peter Gabriel y compondría las canciones que lo catapultarían a la fama internacional en solitario con el lanzamiento de Face Value e In The Air Tonight.

Tanto cuando toca junto a Eric Clapton o Robert Plant como cuando forma una orquesta de jazz con Tony Bennett al frente, actúa por partida doble en el Live Aid o compone la oscarizada música de la exitosa Tarzán de Disney, Collins mantiene un tono íntimo y su don para contar historias no decae jamás.
