I made a quick road trip to Dallas this summer to meet Phil Collins. S-s-seriously. I was invited to attend a Dallas Historical Society event at the Hall of State, where Collins discussed the Genesis of his Alamo artifact collection.
As improbable as it may sound, Collins has amassed a vast number of historical documents and objects related to the iconic Battle of the Alamo. Since shifting his primary focus away from music several years ago (due to family responsibilities and physical ailments), Collins has devoted much of his time to pursuing his passion for the Alamo, a topic of fascination since childhood.
To find out how he's been remembering the Alamo lately and about his insightful discussion in Dallas, read the article I wrote in the current issue of The Medallion.
