Sting looking forward to turning 60

London: English musician Sting insists he is looking forward to turning 60 as he appreciates his life more as he gets older.

The 59-year-old who is married to 57-year-old producer Trudie Styler, with whom he has four children, says turning 60 will be the start of a fun decade, reported Aceshowbiz.

"I had the most fun in the previous decade, between 50 and 60. So I`m anticipating that the next one will be even better. I mean, why not?," Sting said.

The `Police` star insists he isn`t worried about his own mortality and has learnt to appreciate life since it is finite.

"When you reach a certain age, you realise that life is finite. You can be depressed by that, or you can say, `I`m going to appreciate every minute to its maximum potential," he
added.

Sting who lost his parents from cancer said that it has had a profound effect on his opinion of death.

"I`ve always been a bit saturnine, a serious person. An older person than I was in years. Perhaps that`s why I`m not feeling particularly strange about reaching 60," he added.

The singer is set to join Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Lady Gaga, among others, for a concert at New York`s Beacon Theatre on October 1, to raise money for poverty
charity the Robin Hood Foundation.
