Sir Elton John is “raring” to create more music after his hip operation.
The 74-year-old singer - who recently postponed the European and UK leg of his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour until 2023 after injuring his hip - believes he still has a "lot more work to do", despite his advancing years.
is not done making music despite undergoing surgery on his hip despite not appearing “100 per cent fit” while receiving the member of the Companions of Honour from Prince Charles for his long career.
He said at the investiture ceremony: “I may not look as if I’m 100% fit – but I’m not quite – but I’m still raring to go and I’ve got a lot more work to do as far as my life goes."
The ‘Tiny Dancer’ hitmaker - who has sold over 300 million records and had a hit single in every decade since the 1970s - called the accolade “a reminder” that there was more things he needed to achieve, such as music and charity work.
He went on: “So this is just a reminder that there’s more to do. More work to do for music, more work to do for charity and life is great – I’m so lucky.”
The ‘Candle in the Wind’ singer - who has Zachary, 10, and Elijah, eight, with husband David Furnish - labelled his life “amazing” but insisted he hasn't finished yet.
He said: “I’ve had an amazing life, music has been my life, and I got this for music and for work for charity.
“I’ve had a hip replacement but I’m full of beans and I’m full of zest, but this is just a prompter to say ‘Come on you’ve got more to do now’.”
