ERIC CLAPTON WANTS TO QUIT THE ROAD WHEN HE'S 70

Eric Clapton says that he will quit touring when he reaches 70 in 2015. Clapton, who kicks off his next string of North American dates on March 14th in Phoenix, Arizona, explained his decision to Rolling Stone, saying, "The bit onstage, that's easy. If I could do that around my neighborhood, that would be great. You have guys in Texas that play their circuit, and it keeps them alive. But for me, the struggle is the travel. And the only way you can beat that is by throwing so much money at it that you make a loss. So the idea is I'm taking a leaf out of JJ (Cale)'s book: When I'm 70, I'll stop. I won't stop playing or doing one-offs, but I'll stop touring, I think."
