NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Waylon Jennings says the rumor mill is killing him.

Since he decided to quit touring, the country star said Monday, he has gotten tired of hearing rumors that he is about to die.

``I don't need a wheelchair. I don't use makeup, Viagra, Geritol or Hadacol!'' he said. ``I just don't want to be on the road as much as I was.''

Hadacol was a flavored alcohol drink marketed as an all-purpose elixir in the early years of the century.

Jennings sold off his guitars, tour bus and other road gear last year when he chose to stop touring after 30 years on the road.

But the entertainer hasn't quit working. His 72nd album, which features Sheryl Crow, Sting and Mark Knopfler, is to be released Tuesday.
