Harry was inspired by the 77-year-old music legend after watching him on stage in December and sang his praises in an interview with Howard Stern, saying: "He clearly loves it. You're like, 'Who ultimately do you want to be at the end of the day?' You don't want to be the guy who died. You don't want to be the guy who's like whacked out on drugs."

He added: "You want to be the guy who's 70 and playing for three hours because he can, and he wants to, and everyone's loving it, and he's having fun."
