Elton John 'too old' to change his music
Sir Elton John says he is 'too old' to change his music.

The 63-year-old pop star is a huge fan of dance records and is always on the look-out for new artists but he would never record an electronic LP because it wouldn't suit his style.

Elton ' who is famous for his piano-inspired sound - said: ''m always listening to new music. I really love electronic and dance stuff, like Royksopp and Robyn. But I could never do stuff like that because I'm 63 and too old. If I ever tried I wouldn't be true to myself.'

Although he is a huge fan of modern music the flamboyant songwriter still enjoys listening to older artists and admits The Rolling Stones are one of his favourite rock bands of all-time.

Elton ' whose new LP 'The Union is a collaboration with singer-songwriter Leon Russell - explained: 'The Rolling Stones album 'Exile On Main St' is one of the greatest rock 'n' roll records ever made. It was done live, so it's very loose, a little rough around the edges and isn't always in perfect time. But that's the beauty of it, the qualities that make it special.'
