Paul Weller will keep making music until he dies.

The 51-year-old musician is writing more material the older he gets and he intends to keep surprising his fans with his work.

He said: "The fact I'm where I am and still doing it makes me think that, aside from keeling over and dying, I'll never stop making music. If anything, I think I'll get more far out and experimental in my old age.

"That idea excites me, the possibilities of what I could do."

As well as his desire to continue making exciting new music, Weller also

loves seeking out new bands and albums.

The 'Changing Man' rocker added to NME magazine: "I think it helps I'm still really passionate about music, just buying it and listening to it. Whether it's old or new, it doesn't really matter to me.

"There are a lot of people my age who aren't fans any more, a lot of musicians who get to their 30s and just stop listening to music and that's f***ing weird to me. I can't imagine my life without it."

Weller rose to fame as the frontman of The Jam in 1976, and the group enjoyed huge success scoring four UK number one singles before splitting in 1982.

He then went on to record six albums in a more synth-driven style with The Style Council before launching his solo career.
