Washington, Mar 25 : Performing live is as addictive as sex for Mick Jagger and that's why the veteran star is not in the mood to calling it a day anytime soon.
The legendary 'Rolling Stones' frontman has been facing the audience since the 1960s and has recently finished with a major world tour last year with the band.
And he insists that the rush experienced at live shows is as pleasurable and addictive as sex.
"Performing is like sex. It is an addiction. It is why we are out there doing it. But you do have to be careful. To do it well, you can't do it all the time. It has to be the right time," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
He added: "It's like when you are young you think you should be having sex all the time. If you're reading a book, all you are thinking about is 'Why am I reading a book, why aren't I having sex? I'm wasting my time if I'm not having sex.' It is the most amazing feeling. But to do it right you have to prepare for it, you go up and perform and you get into this zone."
