Bill Wyman "isn't interested" in the Rolling Stones.

The 73-year-old rocker - who left the iconic group in 1992 and now tours with his own band Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings - revealed while he is still friends with his former bandmates, he doesn't care about whether they go back on tour or not.

He told BANG Showbiz: "It doesn't interest me. I've got my own band. I have fun doing my own band. I don't do it for money or ego or for the charts.

"I do it for fun, and that's the way I like to do music now. I'm still good friends with the band."

The bassist - who was ranked number 10 in Maxim magazine's Living Sex Legends list - admitted he has no regret about leaving the band, despite being part of the group for 30 years.

He insisted: "No, not at all. No regret.

"If you were a bricklayer for 30 years and then went on to do something else you wouldn't go back to being a bricklayer would you?

"They're great boys and good luck to them."

The Rolling Stones

The veteran band, featuring original members singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, celebrates 50 years since its formation in London by playing its hits including Jumpin' Jack Flash and Brown Sugar.
