RIP Tom Jones

Looks like a long successful run has come to an end for Tom.

Tom Jones Dies: Wrote Book And Lyrics For Long-Running ‘The Fantasticks’, Was 95 (

My mother loved Tom in the early 70's and had  many of his LP's playing in the house. 

He sure had all the soul/presence of any of the big names that were around during the hey day.

What a voice!

Believe it or don't, but Tom and John Lennon were pals. He had a hell of a voice, but my mom considered his tight pants vulgar.😊

Tom Jones the singer and Tom Jones the lyricist are two different people. Tom Jones the singer is still alive.


I thought it was the other Tom Jones at first too. Glad that it wasn't. My mom liked the tight pants.

Oops, I wasn’t paying close enough attention!

@roxy54: My mom liked Johnny Cash and Elvis. Guess my taste in music started forming at an early age! I heard that Ring Of Fire album hundreds of times before I entered High School.

Wish I would have read Cleeds post before I permed my hair (as a tribute).
