Following the long expected retirement of Genesis front man Phil Collins, it has been revealed that his replacement will be a two year old Koi Carp and not the lead singer from Marillion as you might have thought from reading this headline (that'll teach you)
The band's manager said: "We weren't bloody asking Ray Wilson again! Not after last time, I still have to sleep with a light on! No, give me a fish any day of the week"
He then went on to reveal that when Peter Gabriel left the band in the '70's, they tried to audition a wide range of candidates, these included two squirrels, a elderly cat and an Alsatian called Mandy but Phil Collins's wage demands were more reasonable.
In a related story, the surviving members of Pink Floyd are set to reunite for a one-off tour. All except that is for David Gilmour whose vocals will now be performed by an unwell horse, fans should not be able to tell much of a difference on most of the Floyd's more recent stuff a band source told us.
