(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — British legend Sir Cliff Richard has denied reports that he will give up making music in protest of a lack of radio airplay.
On Tuesday, the veteran star was quoted on saying he would not waste time on “a record that no-one will play,” but his manager, Lisa Davis, denies he meant anything serious by the comment.
“There is no truth in the story that he won’t be making or releasing any more records,” she told the BBC. She added that he was actually in the studio recording a new song when the original report was published.
Sir Cliff is planning a new album and has recorded “Miss You Nights” with pop-opera group G4, which is expected to be released as a Christmas single.
Richard I s the most successful British artist in U.K. chart history, spending almost 2,000 weeks on the singles and albums scale since 1958.
He was among 100 entertainers honored with a plaque on the Avenue of Stars, the U.K.’s answer to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, on this past Sunday. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
