Bruce Willis rules out singing return

BRUCE WILLIS has vowed never to relaunch his singing career, insisting his vocals are "excruciating".

The Die Hard actor enjoyed a brief run as a chart star in the late 1980s, reaching number two in the U.K. singles countdown with a cover of Under The Boardwalk and scoring a top five hit in the U.S. with his version of soul classic Respect Yourself.

However, Willis is adamant he will never return to the recording studio as he cannot stand the sound of his own voice.

Asked if he ever plans to make more music, Willis tells British newspaper the Yorkshire Post, "Fortunately not. I shout in key. There are a lot of really good singers in the world and I'm very happy to let them handle that. I just can't stand there and stand the sound of my own voice. It's excruciating."
