Construction completed!

Construction works at a prefabricated houseImage via WikipediaAnd after so many tries on changing templates, trying one after another, and without success, I finally decided to try and delete all the widgets first (which is a last recourse), to see if the format I selected will be displayed accordingly (correctly, to be precise).

I should say that worked. And it has to be the long and hard way of reconstructing the 'face' of my 'musing on music' blog.

Anyway, I have put back in all those missing items, and some other things that were not there before, and some other blogs and sites I am following, or want to keep as reference in the future...

I do hope that what I did is fine, and that it is going to help the readers have a pleasant and enjoyable experience from blog-reading.

Facelift-ing... now

Construction Workman.Image via WikipediaI am trying to correct the template that has been used for my musing on music blog, which, my apologies to all readers, has been uncorrected for so long a time that I can remember.

I should say, this blog is "Under Construction".

The articles are still readable, and it is basically the layout that will be changed. Yes, that is correct, the articles, even at the start of the change, should be readable already.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Till then!

Phil Collins out of music

In the Air TonightImage via WikipediaI missed this one, and it is over a month ago, but here it is anyway...

Against all odds, Phil Collins is ditching his music career.

Not without good reason, however.

The famed Genesis drummer and vocalist (and successful solo artist) cited medical issues as the reason for his retirement, saying years of drumming resulted in a variety of health issues, including hearing loss, a dislocated vertebrae and nerve damage in his hands.

Despite his seven Grammy wins, an Oscar, 13 hit singles and more than 150 million albums sold as a solo artist, Collins has seen his share of criticism, with critics panning much of his work over the years years.

"You don't have to be great to be successful. Look at Phil Collins," Oasis member Noel Gallagher famously said, for example.

Collins seemed resigned to the abuse, telling FHM (via Time), "I'm sorry that it was all so successful. I honestly didn't mean it to happen like that. It's hardly surprising that people grew to hate me."

And this isn't exactly Collins' first attempt to exit the music industry. He moved to Switzerland to do just that, and now lives in a remote town in the country with his two sons.

In 2009, Collins hinted at his impending retirement on the Genesis website, after he dislocated a vertebrae in his neck that prevented him from playing the drums or piano.

"I was going to stop drumming anyway," Collins said. "I had stopped. I don't miss it."

What do you think about Collins' official retirement? Let us hear it in the comments.
