“In rock music you need energy, and there have not been a lot of new rock singers around. Now there are a few,” said the music legend, while speaking on Swedish radio station P4.

“You have Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly. That kind of post-punk vibe makes me think there is still a bit of life in rock ‘n’ roll.”

Jagger also shut down any rumours of his retirement.

The singer is off on a European tour with the Rolling Stones.

“I am not planning it to be the last live outing. I love being on tour. I don’t think I would do it if I did not enjoy it,” he said. “I enjoy going out there onstage and doing my stuff. That is what I do. I want everyone to enjoy themselves and forget the troubles in their lives for a couple of hours and just chill out and have a great afternoon and evening.”
