Phil Collins can't stand Paul McCartney 14 years later

Phil Collins thinks Sir Paul McCartney is condescending.

The 65-year-old star is former fan of the legendary singer, but his perception of Sir Paul took a sharp downward turn following an encounter at the Party at the Palace event at Buckingham Palace in 2002, which marked the Golden Jubilee of Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

Phil Collins thinks Sir Paul McCartney is condescending.

The 65-year-old star is former fan of the legendary singer, but his perception of Sir Paul took a sharp downward turn following an encounter at the Party at the Palace event at Buckingham Palace in 2002, which marked the Golden Jubilee of Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

He said: "I've got to preface this by saying McCartney was one of my heroes. But he has this thing when he's talking to you, where he makes you feel ...[putting on a condescending Scouse accent] 'I know this must be hard for you, because I'm a Beatle. I'm Paul McCartney and it must be very hard for you to actually be holding a conversation with me.'"

Phil admitted he has "never forgot" the way he was treated by Sir Paul at Buckingham Palace.

He explained to the Sunday Times newspaper: "I met him when I was working at the Buckingham Palace party at the palace thing back in 2002.

"McCartney came up with Heather Mills and I had a first edition of The Beatles by Hunter Davies and I said, 'Hey Paul, do you mind signing this for me?' And he said, 'Oh Heather, our little Phil's a bit of a Beatles fan.' And I thought, 'You f***, you f***.' Never forgot it."

Phil is similarly unimpressed by US presidential candidate Donald Trump, although he admits to be fascinated by his rise.

Phil said: "I've been engrossed in this presidential candidacy. I can't stand Donald Trump - no reason, other than I think he's completely wrong and it's a stupid idea."

Despite this, Phil hasn't registered a vote since he was a teenager, explaining he has been "out of the country on tour" for much of his adult life.
