Sir Rod Stewart has revealed he had so much sex at the height of his career he ‘got bored of it’.
The Do Ya Think I’m Sexy singer, who has been married to model Penny Lancaster since 2007, said his revolving-door type love life left him feeling ‘lonely’.
Speaking to The Sun, the 74-year-old said: “Sex at one point was beginning to be boring, late Eighties, early Nineties, always flying in models left, right and centre. One would arrive, the other would leave.
“It just became I was getting lonely. I thought, ‘You’ve got everything — women, great success, kids’, but there wasn’t a devotion, someone I could be devoted to, so I got bored of it.”
The former Faces frontman began dating Lancaster in 1999 after separating from second wife Rachel Hunter. The pair have two children, Alastair, 13 and eight-year-old Aiden, and Stewart has six more children with four other women. But, he insists there are no more kids on the horizon, saying: “My cue is back in the rack, the banana’s back in the fruit bowl.”
With Stewart being known for his extravagant live shows and flashy stage clothes, the singer has hinted his future tour plans may be limited.
He said: “I think I’ll always sing but I can’t always do this. There’s got to come a time when I’m going to say, ‘Right, put away the tight trousers and all the funny clothes’.
“I want to go on and do the Great American Songbook. In fact, I had a meeting about it last week, doing all the jazz standards at the Albert Hall.”
When pressed on a potential retirement, a candid Stewart said: “It’s nearer than you think. But retirement? No. From doing rock ’n’ roll stuff? Yes.
“I certainly won’t do 300 dates and then retire. I’ll just fade away like the old soldier I am.”
