Rod Stewart, like his good friend Elton John, still enjoys recording, but unlike Elton, he has no desire to stop touring.
“I’m not even thinking about it,” says Stewart in an interview with Billboard. “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 also has advice for Elton, if and when he should record another album – produce it yourself.
“I don’t understand why someone like Elton doesn’t produce his own albums. It’s just so much fun. You can follow all the way through from when the song is born to when it’s out on the radio and the label never gets in the way. I don’t know why Elton doesn’t do it. I’ve got eight kids; he’s only got two," Rod says with a laugh.
Stewart released his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses, on Friday. He’s back on tour in the U.S. October 14th in St. Paul, Minnesota.
