But Malvolio believes his mistress, Olivia, loves him, as he is a victim of a trick played on him by those who would make him mad.

      Not Dead Yet: The Autobiography

      Waterstones

      <p>It’s the morning after the hangover before. My lost weekend became a few lost years, and nearly lost me my life. Now I have to engage with some sober reflection and wonder: how did I end up like that, alone and drowning in the bottom of a bottle?<br> Phil Collins: for a drummer who so readily stepped into Peter Gabriel’s outlandish Genesis platforms and forged a huge, pan-Atlantic solo career, the tone of this extraordinary rock music tell-all is often self-admonishing: as Clive James once quoted, talent is rare but the talent to handle talent is rarer still. From the heights of almost defining the sound of the eighties, what follows is a compelling, rough-ride to oblivion, replete with broken marriages and a battle with the bottle that almost ends his life.<br> The entire story is here, from Collins’ beginnings as a child actor to his status as one of only three musicians globally to sell over 100 million records as both a group and a solo artist. There are of course extraordinary tales – the release of Face Value, playing twice at Live Aid, bagging an Oscar for Disney’s animated adaptation of Tarzan, to name a handful – and throughout, despite the highs and lows, the understanding of his innate gift for music which refused to fully fade away.<br>  <br> 'It’s not all darkness. Not Dead Yet is laced with self-lacerating wit and celebrity cameos (Dustin Hoffman, Tony Bennett, Adele) rendered with unusual candour.' - The New York Times</p>
