Simon Cowell REVEALS ‘touching reason’ why he’ll never retire as he nears his 65th birthday


Four decades in the music industry, Simon Cowell is showing no signs of slowing down … and does not plan to slow down.

And ahead of his 65th birthday later this year, the talent scout has insisted that he will never retire from the industry – and revealed the touching reason why. 


In an interview with Hello! magazine, Simon, 64, recalled the sadness surrounding his late father Eric’s retirement as he had ‘no choice’ in his stopping working.

Simon – who is about to set out on a new search for the next hit boyband – has confirmed that he won’t let the same thing happen to him. 

Asked if he was looking to retire, he said: ‘Oh god no, I’ll probably drop dead doing what I’m doing.

‘As long as I think there’s a need or a purpose and it’s something I can do well, I’m up for it.’


Simon recalled that Eric – who passed away in 1999 from a heart attack – had ‘no choice’ but to stop working as he was employed by a big company.

The X Factor judge said that watching what his father went through was difficult.

‘His brain was still amazing and he could have done that job for another 20 years,’ Simon said. 

Sharing the words of advice he received from him, Simon said his father urged him to try and work for himself if he was ever in a position to.
