Atlantic Timeline - 1985

Atlantic Timeline is an ongoing column where we highlight some of the most exciting moments from Atlantic Records artists' musical legacy. This installment covers 1985.

1985 Another landmark year for PHIL COLLINS: January sees his third solo album, No Jacket Required, go straight to #1. It later wins the Grammy for ‘Album of the Year,’ selling over 12 million copies to earn one of the RIAA’s rare Diamond Awards. The album includes two #1 singles in “Sussudio” and “One More Night,” plus two further top 10 successes, “Don’t Lose My Number” and “Take Me Home.”

On July 13th, COLLINS is among the top stars at the international famine relief benefit concert, Live Aid – and thanks to the Concorde, the only artist to perform at both Wembley Stadium in London and JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Along with his own set at both venues, he also plays drums for ERIC CLAPTON and a reunited LED ZEPPELIN in Philly.

PHIL COLLINS’ bandmate MIKE RUTHERFORD also has a banner year, releasing the self-titled, gold-certified debut from his MIKE + THE MECHANICS in October. It features the top 10 singles, “Silent Running” and “All I Need Is A Miracle.”
