Rocker Jon Bon Jovi, 47, is worried about getting old even though he still feels like a youngster on the inside
Jon Bon Jovi is worried about getting old.
The rocker - who plans to keep on performing with bandmates, guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboard player Dave Bryan and drummer Tico Torres, as long as he can - is scared about the ageing process even though he still feels like a youngster on the inside.
He told Germany's Reader's Digest magazine: "I find it hard to believe I'm 47 already, because I still feel like 18. I don't plan on being the next Mick Jagger and to keep on going till my late 60s. But at the moment I don't see a reason why I should stop."
The singer - who was famed for his luxurious mullet in the 80s - has previously revealed he became so horrified by his receding hairline, he began massaging his scalp every day to encourage it to grow back.
He said: "Let me tell you, I am so worried. I look at guys like Sting and think, 'Well, he's cool about losing his hair,' but I'm already losing a bit and I'm so aware of it. Someone told me that you have to regularly massage your scalp so I do that all the time. You look like a jerk but it's got to be worth a shot."
