Music legend B.B. KING has assured fans he will never retire - and will continue to sing the blues until he dies.
The 84 year old, who once played 300 shows a year, continues to tour the world, despite his advancing years, and he's adamant he has no plans to put an end to his lengthy career.
He says, "Retire? I'll only do that when I'm called from above. As long as people say I play the blues well, I'll carry on playing."
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
