When Phil Collins announced his return to the stage, he also revealed he couldn’t drum anymore. His 15-year old son, Nicholas, ended up being Phil’s drummer on the tour. But Nicholas isn’t the only Collins’ boy with dad’s talent. In fact, there’s another that might have even more of it.

Meet Simon Collins. Son of Phil’s first wife, Andrea Bertorelli. Simon is a drummer and former lead singer of a progressive rock band. Sound familiar? Simon started following in his famous father’s footsteps when he was just 5, when he got his first drum kit. Now, a solo artist and producer, Simon keeps very busy.

Many have said that Simon sounds a lot like daddy Phil. Here are a few of his hits that might have you agreeing.
