Elton is too old to reinvent himself

London: Pop legend Sir Elton John has deserted the idea of becoming a dance floor diva, as he believes at 63 he is too old for such experiments.

‘The Candle in the Wind’ hit maker is a huge fan of dance music and admits he has been tempted to try his hand at a club anthem, but, at this age, he thinks he should stick to what he does best.

"I`m always listening to new music. I really love electronic and dance stuff, like Royksopp and Robyn. But I could never do stuff like that because I’m 63 and too old. If I ever tried I wouldn’t be true to myself," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

But he is turning his back on pop - the star recently announced we won’t be recording any more pop albums, insisting he wants to devote the rest of his career to tackling the blues.
