Rod recently confirmed that unlike the likes of Paul Simon and Elton John, he isn't even considering retiring from touring.

"All good things must end," he said. "Not for me, not yet. I'm not even thinking about it."

Rod's new album The Tears of Hercules is released on November 12, 2021 and was preceded by the single 'One More Time'.

As well as his solo plans, Rod has also found time to reunite with fellow surviving Faces players Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones.

The trio have recorded 14 tracks together, a mix of reworked unreleased material from their 1970s heyday and some completely newly-recorded songs.

Faces have also pledged to play some live shows together in the near future.
