Veteran singer Mick Jagger has vowed he will continue recording and touring with The Rolling Stones.
Answering questions from readers of the BBC News website, the star, who has just spent two years touring with the band, said they had no plans to retire.
"I'm sure the Rolling Stones will do more things and more records and more tours. We've got no plans to stop any of that really," the 64-year-old said.
"As far as I'm concerned I'm sure we'll continue," he added.
Last month the group were named the top earning music act of the past year, according to US business publication Forbes.
Their Bigger Bang tour, which grossed $437m (£217m), helped the rock stars make $88m (£43m) between June 2006 and June this year.
Jagger said he will use his "own judgement" to decide when it is time to stop singing.
"The trouble is, when you get older or you smoke a lot, your voice changes. As a singer, you know you can't go to certain notes. But that is not everything, it's the expression you put into it," he said.
The Rolling Stones played their first UK festival gig in more than 30 years at the Isle of Wight festival in June.
But he added he is in no hurry to headline Glastonbury if the weather is as bad as it was at the last festival.
"I don't want to play Glastonbury on the Sunday night in the pouring rain, which is what The Who did this year.
"I was watching it on the telly, and my kids were there. I'm on the phone saying 'it's awful'. They said it's really fun, but it didn't look fun to me. You've got to pick your slot."
It was at the Isle of Wight gig that the band performed with singer Amy Winehouse, who has been at the centre of concern surrounding her health.
Jagger, however, said he thought the 24-year-old would get through this.
"I think everyone goes through this sort of thing when they become very famous," he said.
"Hopefully Amy will come out of the other side with equanimity and a new lease of life."
