Elton John Not Retiring, Despite Reports

ABC/Randy HolmesIs Elton John hanging up his glasses and getting out of the music biz for good?  Thankfully, despite reports, the answer is no.

During a performance on Tuesday at a festival in France, Elton reportedly told the crowd that he plans to retire from the music business to spend more time with his family.  Elton allegedly announced, "No more shows, no more music, no more songs." 

That seems like an odd pronouncement, however, given that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has shows booked through the end of the year, and has talked about future recording projects in various interviews.

A rep for the Rocket Man told ABC News Radio that the music legend isn't quite ready to put the piano in mothballs. 

"He's not retiring," she said.

Elton has spoken about cutting back on touring once his two sons are in school, but that won't be for a couple of years.
