New York -- "Michael J. Fox was on a morning show the other day, and I feel a bit sorry for him," says Phil Collins, as he sits in a conference room at his record company's Manhattan offices. "He had the TV show, 'Family Ties,' and now the guy's trying to act, but nobody will really take him seriously until he gets that role that will change everybody's minds."I feel like that, in a way."Given Collins' track record, it's hard to imagine him worrying about being taken seriously. After all, he's one of the most accomplished and versatile musicians in rock.

More proof that the mid-'80s were ridiculously awesome, via Billboard's Hot 100 Chart archive. 10. "Walking on Sunshine," Katrina & the Waves Catchy, huh? Advertisers think so. NPR reported in 2010 that advertisers will pay $150,000-$200,000 to use the track for one year. The band has earned millions in royalties for this one track. Lesson learned: Craft a cheesy pop song. 9. "Angel," Madonna "Angel" wasn't Madonna's biggest hit in 1985, which was a busy "Like a Virgin"-era year for her. "Material Girl" hit No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart, but "Angel" eventually hit No. 5. 8. "Everything She Wants," Wham!

Stardom in pop music, as elsewhere in the entertainment world, is to a certain extent all about image. Think of Bruce Springsteen, and you imagine a workingman's rock star, all honest sweat and no-frills integrity. Thnink of Eric Clapton, on the other hand, and what comes up is the noble suffering of a man who truly does have the right to sing the blues.But what image appears when we think of Phil Collins? Is it the cheerfully entertaining showman who led Genesis through such hits as "Invisible Touch"?

As far as the British tabloids were concerned, it was just another example of the Rock Star Mid-Life Crisis.Open-and-shut case, really. First, Phil Collins releases an album of intensely personal songs that sound nothing like the light, chipper pop fare his fans expect. Next, he leaves Jill, his wife of 14 years, for Orianne Cevey, a Swiss heiress half his age. To top it all off, he then announces he's leaving Genesis, the enormously popular band he had drummed and sung with for 25 years.

TRIPPING THE LIVE FANTASTICPaul McCartney (Capitol 94778)As if playing four continents weren't enough, Paul McCartney has managed to eke even more mileage out of his recent world tour with "Tripping the Live Fantastic," a 37-song sampling that is, at two hours and 18 minutes, nearly as long as the show itself. Still, the show holds up on record almost as well as it did onstage. Thanks to a genuinely first-rate band, the recent efforts (like "My Brave Face") sparkle, the oldies (like "Ain't That a Shame")

NEW YORK -- It's hard to get a lot of drama out of the guys in Genesis.Lord knows, there's enough potential for the stuff. After all, the band just replaced Phil Collins -- who had been its extremely recognizable front man for the better part of two decades -- with a largely unknown 28-year-old Scot named Ray Wilson.Moreover, the group's new album, "Calling All Stations" (Atlantic 83037, arriving in stores today), finds the band edging away from the easily listenable pop format of its last several studio albums.

Just as some comedians have a hankering to play Hamlet, Phil Collins has liked to seem serious and reflective. It may not be the way every fan likes to see him, but it certainly has its appeal; after all, his consider-the-homeless song, "Another Day in Paradise," was the biggest single of his solo career.But after 1993's assiduously self-involved "Both Sides," people were beginning to think they'd had enough of his "Alas, poor Yorick!" routine -- including, it would seem, Collins himself.

A funny thing happened on the way to the Grammy Awards last year: The voters' taste improved dramatically.Instead of the usual assortment of chart-topping fuddy-duddies, the Grammy winner's circle suddenly became a haven of hip. Bonnie Raitt, a veteran blues-rocker whose reputation had always been more impressive than her sales figures, led the way with four Grammys, including Album of the Year. Following close were a host of critically acclaimed performers, among them such first-time winners as Lyle Lovett, k.d. lang, Metallica, Living Colour, Peter Gabriel, Dr. John, the Neville Brothers and John Lee Hooker.
