Drummer, singer, actor... artist?

Later this year, the Dallas Museum of Art is hosting Phil Collins: the world won’t listen, a video installation where Phil Collins invites Smiths fans around the world to contribute karaoke renditions of Smiths songs.

We can't make up our mind, though, if Rolling Stone really believes that the drummer from Genesis and the 2006 Turner-shortlisted artist are the same Phil Collins, or if it's just a joke. We fear they might be being serious, though.

Errr - this is Phil Collins, the noted visual artist - a different person entirely. Though the drummer does some pleasant doodles.....

hehe, it now says "evidently not the phil collins"...

also, in further "hasn't someone already done this" news, Best Artist Ever Candice Breitz has been doing this sort of thing for ages (the madonna one at the White Cube was astonishing)
