Alison Krauss likes him and they sound awesome together.
I’m 62 and I finally figured out that the music my parents liked that I rebelled so hard against when I was a kid actually is pretty damn good (my eureka moment was buying my first Sinatra CD), and that there’s nothing the matter with well done pop. But to each his/her own.I'm 60 yo. To me he was always pure pop dribble, stuff that plays on the Merv Griffin show that my parents would watch. He was a notch above Neil Diamond, but not by much. Sorry to you fan, but he's not for me. Carry on.
Where's that clip of TJ playing with Jeff Beck, that kinda blew my mind.
yeah, sorry, I don't get Frank either.I’m 62 and I finally figured out that the music my parents liked that I rebelled so hard against when I was a kid actually is pretty damn good (my eureka moment was buying my first Sinatra CD), and that there’s nothing the matter with well done pop.

Again to each his own. If we all liked the same things it would be a boring world. Basically I’m not rock-centric at all in my tastes at this point in my life, where I basically was in my teens and 20s. I appreciate entertainment for the sake of entertainment, not concerned about music to piss people off or make some grand statement, although I don’t reject such things. Basically I don’t rebel anymore.yeah, sorry, I don't get Frank either.
The only artist that I warmed up to that my parents liked was Johnny Cash.
I was going to post it a couple of times but I kept getting distracted. I actually would have put up a live version that IIRC us from Conan, after a great interview.Tom can do no wrong. Seven pages and no one posted this??
Rod Evans from Deep Purple wanted to be Tom Jones back in the day. Lots of singers did. Tom Jones and Neil Diamond both played to blue haired old ladies and made bank. Both of them could have also been seriously successful singing and fronting MUCH heavier bands.He never really managed or tried TBH to get away from the blue hair ol' lady gig but if i am being honest i think he has or could have had the UK premier rock and roll voice
Almost ALL of the UK R&R singers from the 60s and 70s have lost most of their power and range....not so big Tam
If this guy had choosen a rock band for a career he'd be at the top of the chops tree
Tom was a great singer, I'm more into guitar but he was part of the English Invasion so that was cool. Jimmy Page did some studio work back then but has taken credit for parts he did not record such as the solos on You Really Got Me and I Can't Explain, which he clearly did not do.I wonder what those Zeppelin fans would think if they knew that Jimmy Page played on Tom's first big hit?
