Former ROLLING STONE Bill Wyman will quit touring with his RHYTHM KINGS band at the end of their current tour.

The PAINT IT BLACK musician, who left the Stones band in 1993, is retiring from full-time live performing so he can spend more time with his family.

In a posting on his website Wyman, 67, says, "I have a young family. I am missing out on so much of their growing up.

"I'm a musician and I still get off on that. I have learned through that there's a lot more to life than just music."
