Tom Jones wants to die on stage
Welsh singer Tom Jones dreads the thought of retiring and would rather die on stage.
The veteran singer, 71, is currently a judge on The Voice and has also finished a new album, but he has no plans to ease his workload as he doesn't know what he would do without performing.
He tells The Daily Star, "I hope my life comes to a natural full-stop so maybe it'd be easiest if I fell down dead on stage. I hate the thought of not being able to sing. I've no idea how I'd fill my time. It'd be terrible if I had to sit around listening to other people's records, thinking 'I can't do that any more'.
"It could happen that I'll just get too tired to tour any more and it'll be time for a long sit-down. But having it forced on me, sat at home with regrets? F**k that."
