This year Phil Collins announced his first concert since 2010, sang “In The Air Tonight” for the first time since 2005, reunited with Genesis’ classic lineup (in person, not on stage). But the most fascinating bit of Collins news in 2014 might have been the revelation that he donated a massive collection of Alamo memorabilia to the state of Texas. Apparently the man spends a lot of time remembering the Alamo! Now Reuters reports that San Antonio will build a $100 million museum named after Collins, which will include his memorabilia plus other Alamo artifacts.

“When I got older and became successful, I decided to spend my money on original items from the Alamo rather than on Ferraris,” Collins told a news conference in San Antonio.
