LOS ANGELES, March 7 (UPI) -- Phil Collins' publicist says the British pop star is not retiring from music, despite remarks he made to a magazine suggesting he intends to.

The 60-year-old former Genesis lead singer and drummer is quoted in an article in FHM as saying decades of vigorous performances has left his back aching and his hearing poor. He said it even hurts his hands to hold his drum sticks.

"I don't really belong to that world and I don't think anyone's going to miss me," Collins is quoted as saying in the interview. "I'm much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely."

However, his publicist said Monday that doesn't mean he really is giving up music altogether.

"He is not, has no intention of, retiring," his representative told People.com.
