The Hives frontman HOWLIN' PELLE ALMQVIST has no intention of using modern music technology like CD and MP3 players - he's vowed to play vinyl until he dies.

The Swedish WALK IDIOT WALK singer insists his LP collection is too big to change his music format.

Almqvist says, "I'm sticking with my vinyl. I've got too many records to change now.

"All my records cost less than GBP1 and that's all you need to spend on this, but it's still great."
