Phil Collins was so impressed by Frank Zappa's More Trouble every Day (Roxy and Elswhere) played by the drummers Ralph Humprhrey and Chester Thompson, that he wanted to play a number like that song. After he saw Chester in Weather Report ('76), Phil asked him to replace Bill Bruford. Nine days of rehearsals followed and then a gig in The Rainbow took place. Chester didn't do the job very well that night, but he stayed for years and years.
