So who would’a thunk it but 80s English pop star Phil Collins is a collector of artifacts from the Alamo since the 1990s and has donated some of his collection to the state of Texas. In return, the biggest state in the Union has made Mr. Collins an honourary Texan. If you’re trying to picture Phil Collins let me jog your memory- he was the drummer for Genesis before Peter Gabriel left to pursue a solo career and then became the frontman for a while before also pursuing a solo career which included music for Disney’s Tarzan (You’ll be in My Heart) and a string of hits throughout his career (Something Happened on the Way to Heaven, Sussudio, Illegal Alien, Against All Odds, In the Air Tonight (think: Wierd Cadbury Gorilla adverts), Easy Lover, Two Hearts, That’s All and many, many more. I find it kind of amusing he’s so into American history but hey, thanks for the stuff back!
