Tony Allen 'planning to keep drumming'
Afrobeat legend Tony Allen has said he has no plans to retire from the drum kit.
The musician, who made his name in Africa 70 and went on to collaborate with Damon Albarn in The Good, The Bad and The Queen, has just turned 70 but is keen to continue his career.
He is in the UK for a six-date tour in support of his album Secret Agent and Allen told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he thinks he still has plenty left to offer the world of music.
"I don't think it's the end," the drummer explained. "I'm still looking forward all the time.
"You look forward to doing what things appeal to you."
Allen is set to play in Glasgow tonight (October 1st), before performing behind the drum kit in Edinburgh, Leeds, London and Bristol.
In November, the musician is to embark on a tour of Africa, playing dates in Ghana, Togo, Senegal and Burkina Faso.
