NEW YORK, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Rocker Billy Joel told CBS News his residency at New York's Madison Square Garden means he is "kind of unretiring" as he prepares to turn 65 in May.

The Long Island resident, who released his last rock 'n' roll album "River of Dreams" in 1993, said the idea of a monthly gig at the famed Manhattan venue is appealing to him at this stage of his life.

"So I go: 'Wait a minute, that's nice. That's one place I don't have to schlep to. I can commute to it from where I live.' And we love the Garden," he said. "As long as there's a ticket demand and as long as I'm physically capable of doing it. I'm gonna be 65 years old. Most people retire at 65. I'm kind of unretiring."
