Daltrey: 'I've Never Grown Old'

Rock veteran ROGER DALTREY has the last laugh with fans who mock him for singing "Hope I die before I get old" - he insists he never has grown old. THE WHO frontman was only 21 when the hit single MY GENERATION was released in 1965. Forty-one years on, he sticks to the sentiment, claiming age is about spirit and not years. He says, "Over the years, I've lost count of the number of times I get asked that terrible question, 'Don't you wish you'd never sang, "I hope I die before I get old?"' "Age has nothing to do with years - it's in the spirit. If you're old in your spirit you should be bloody dead, even if you're only 34."
