Phil Collins has admitted that he has often considered suicide during some rough periods in his life.
Former Genesis front man Collins spoke to Rolling Stone magazine and confessed that he had thought about ending his life after his third marriage collapsed.
The only thing that stopped the 59-year-old was the thought of leaving his children.
In a remarkably frank interview, Collins said that years of relentless criticism of his solo work took its toll and he no longer wanted to make records.
He also added that a suicide note reading, "too many things went wrong too often", left by comedian Tony Hancock, played on his mind.
Collins has two sons to his Swiss-born ex-wife Orianne Cevey and one daughter from his second marriage to Jill Tavelman.
