19 July 2019, 16:00

Tune in to Radio X on Saturday from 7pm to hear Kelly Jones and co play their epic homecoming gig at Swansea's Singleton Park and speak to Gordon Smart.

With three decades under their belt, Stereophonics are definitely on their way to achieving veteran rocker status. But despite frontman Kelly Jones being in his mid 40s, and the eldest in the band being 47, they just never seem to age.

The Dakota rockers - who are also comprised of long-time bassist Richard Jones (45), guitarist Adam Zindani (47) and drummer Jamie Morrison (36) - spoke to Radio X's Gordon Smart ahead of their epic homecoming gig at Swansea's Singleton Park and discussed longevity, setlists and their most expensive mistakes.

Asked about the secret to their youthful looks, their bassist replied: "There's no secret..."

However frontman Kelly Jones jokingly interjected: "Sex after dark," with their guitarist adding: "That's the name of the next record!"
