The Streets - Skinner Admires Daft Punk's Cunning Disguise

British rapper MIKE SKINNER wishes he had followed the lead of dance stars DAFT PUNK and worn a helmet to hide his identity, so he could continue performing into old age.
The star shot to fame in 2002 with the release of The Streets' debut album Original Pirate Material and he went on to enjoy a string of hits.
But he recently confirmed the band's forthcoming record, Computers and Blues, will be their last - and he admits his advancing age played a key part in his decision to end the group.
The 32 year old explains, "I'm getting older. (I don't want to be) singing (song) Let's Push Things Forward when I'm 40."
And he regrets not coming up with a cunning plan to keep his identity under wraps - and prolong his career.
He adds, "If I'd have put on a helmet like Daft Punk - sometimes I think I should have - those guys can go on forever. They're going to be 60, and, under that helmet, they could be 23."
French dance duo Daft Punk, comprising of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, are known for wearing robot costumes and helmets while performing. They recently won acclaim for scoring the Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
