However, the star is again combating match and wowing crowds – which, in response to his ex-accountant Laurence Myers, is one thing he didn’t think he’d nonetheless be doing.

“The Rolling Stones had early success but they weren’t making any money,” the 83-year-old remembered. “I did their 1964 tour accounts and so they made nothing from it. One day Mick and I had been speaking about quite a lot of issues and pensions got here up.
“He said, ‘Pensions, maybe I should think about it? I won’t be singing rock ‘n’ roll when I’m sixty.’”
