Despite turning 77 this year, Rod has said that he has no plans to announce his retirement from touring like fellow singer-songwriters Paul Simon and Elton John.

"I don't know what their reasons are. Maybe Paul Simon doesn't enjoy it as much as I do," Rod said.

"I'm anxious. I love it. Elton, he's doing 300 shows and he'll still do the odd show here and there."All good things must end. Not for me, not yet. I'm not even thinking about it."

Rod's last album was 2021's The Tears of Hercules, which went to number five in the UK singles charts.

As well as continuing his solo career, Rod recently reunited with his Faces bandmates Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones in the studio for the first time in 40 years.

The reformed Faces plan to release new music and also go out on the road.
