Niall Horan doesn't think he will be able to perform when he is Sir Mick Jagger's age, as the star is still able to entertain crowds age 70, and puts it down to his ''dodgy knee.''
Niall Horan doesn't think he will be able to perform when he is 70.
The 20-year-old One Direction star doesn't anticipate entertaining future generations for years to come like Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger - whose career has spanned over 50 years - blaming his ''dodgy knees.''
The star said: ''Jagger does it but I don't think at the moment I'd be able to. I've got dodgy knees.''
The teen heartthrob's bandmate, Harry Styles, is also in awe of Mick and is hoping to have a long standing career like him.
Earlier this year the curly-haired hunk took up ballet in an attempt to emulate the rock star's dancing skill and decided to copy part of Mick's fitness regime following a chat with the music legend's long-standing trainer and physio Torje Eike.
A source previously said: ''Harry wants a career spanning decades like Mick's and to have that he recognises fitness, health and developing his body is the key.
''He spoke to Torje about Jagger's intense routine of kick-boxing, running, weights and, most importantly, ballet.
''That's the Achilles' heel in Harry's training. He can't dance and neither can any of the 1D boys - their choreographer recognised early on they shouldn't dance on stage.''
One Direction - which also includes Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne - are currently on the Australian leg of the tour where they are set to take to the stage at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena tonight (17.10.13).
