Oakenfold Laughs Off Retirement Rumours ::

Reported by Trackitdown TID on July 23, 2004

Veteran superstar DJ Paul Oakenfold has dismissed rumours that he’s contemplating giving up DJing, telling the Liverpool Echo this week ‘I'm about to go on a five-week tour of America, of course I'm not retiring."

"I absolutely love DJing - that's what I do,” the trance guru added.

"Where do they get these things?”

One possible source for the latest rumour could be from rival jock DJ Tiesto, who spoke candidly about the career of his ‘great friend’ in Mixmag.

“I respect what he does and the way he presents himself but I think he’s finished with dance music,” Tiesto suggested in May.

“He’s done it all, he’s been everywhere and done everything, so dance music’s not his passion any more.” (Paul Oakenfold plays at Godskitchen’s Global Gathering next weekend (July 31) and Creamfields (August 28)
