THE FERGIE/PHIL COLLINS CONNECTION
The blog Idolator has a funny comparison between Fergie from Black Eyed Peas and Phil Collins -- both artists were able to balance, for a time, huge solo success and the huge success of their bands. Although I doubt Fergie and the Peas will be able to maintain as long as Phil and Genesis did. Not that I'm one to hate on the Peas, I liked them before she joined, and I like some of the stuff that they have done since. But there seems to be a backlash against them that dwarves the hate that Phil and Genesis got, and I don't know if they have the fanbase that Phil and the boys had.
