Veteran singer Morrissey is planning to retire in 2014 as he's getting too old for rock 'n' roll.
The Suedehead hitmaker launched his career as frontman of The Smiths in 1982 and has released almost 40 singles since going solo in 1988.
But the 53 year old has recently become concerned about some "distressing" signs of ageing and fears he'll turn into an elderly crooner if he doesn't walk away from the music industry soon.
Asked during an interview for JuiceOnline.com if he plans to retire at the age of 55, Morrissey says, "Yes. I am slightly shocked to have gone as far as I have. This is my 30th year, and I've aged a lot recently, which is bit distressing for me, as it must be for everyone. The body changes shape and there's nothing you can do about it. Do I continue as a modern day Andy Williams? I take one hour at a time."
