Phil Collins is retiring from music due to a list of health problems.

The 60-year-old singer told the British magazine, FHM that he is suffering from several health issues that make it difficult for him to perform, including a dislocated vertebra, hearing loss and nerve damage.

Collins has seven Grammy Awards. He also won an Oscar for a song from Disney's animated movie, "Tarzan."

The singer does not think he will be missed saying, "It's hardly surprising that people grew to hate me."
