Millionaire rocker Eric Clapton will carry on working until he dies, because he leads such an extravagant lifestyle.

Despite an estimated fortune of around $216 million (GBP120 million), 60-year-old Clapton insists he and wife MELIA McENERY, 31, spend so much their bank account will run dry if he ever stops singing.

Clapton says, "It's not a pretence. I will have to work to support the way we live."
