Cliff Richard in no mood to retire

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Veteran musician Cliff Richard says he has no plans to retire anytime soon.

However, the singer, who will turn 77 on October 14, says he has an idea about when he would want to stop working.

"I'm still touring, my music still sells, and next month I'll be 77. I'm not quite ready to hang up my guitar but after nearly 60 years in the music business, I've been giving some thought to where, one day, I might want to end up," Richard tells Sunday Times newspaper.

The "Devil Woman" singer spent two years being investigated over historic allegations against him, and he says during the "traumatic" enquiry, he hardly slept for two hours at a time.

"It hurt me so much I don't think I can ever recover personally. I'm living my life again and it's all in my past - but when I think of what I tried to build up in my career, I know it's been damaged in places I won't ever go back to.
