Veteran singer Chris Rea has reassured fans he has no plans to retire, despite selling his riverside studio in Cookham, England. The ROAD TO HELL star, who nearly died from pancreatitis recently, has put the property on the market for GBP1.7 million ($3.1 million) leading to reports he is abandoning the music scene. But a spokeswoman says, "He's not packing up and retiring. He'll just be recording elsewhere."
