Both Sides is Phil Collins' fifth studio album. It was recorded in 1992 and released in the autumn of 1993.
You know, a song is like a kid. You bring it up. And sometimes something you thought was going to be fantastic, by the time it`s finished, is a bit of a disappointment.
I have to say that the whole thing that has arisen in recent times of me being the epitome of `the great musical evil`, and to be avoided at all costs, is both curious and disturbing to me. Why I have been chosen for this role is a little beyond me. It seems that it`s started by an anonymous voice and seconded by others without question.

As the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Queen get underway, drummer Roger Taylor tells how, despite personal setbacks, the band is still a major force.
