Last night, Phil Collins made his triumphant return on The Tonight Show. He performed his classic song ‘In The Air Tonight’ with The Roots (watch below). The song features one of the most memorable performances in modern drumming, so having Questlove waiting behind Collins for that dramatic percussion entrance is mesmerizing.

Phil Collins announced his retirement in 2011, and announced that he is “no longer retired” last year. He is currently promoting a new memoir, titled Not Dead Yet, and international tour.
