Motorhead frontman Lemmy is refusing to retire when he turns 60 next year, insisting he plans to rock until he drops.

Despite collapsing on stage in Germany in July (05), Lemmy insists he is as fit as ever - and couldn't contemplate a life away from music.

The singer, whose real name is IAN KILMINSTER, says, "What have you got that's better than what I do? I get to travel all over the world, I get to sleep with women of all colours and religious persuasions and I get to play the music I like and make people happier than they were when I arrived.

"I don't see why there should be a point where everyone decides you're too old. I'm not too old, and until I decide I'm too old I'll never be too f**king old."
