Description
ROCK & POP MUSIC. The owner of one of the most recognizable faces - not to mention voices - in the entertainment business, Sir Tom Jones is the definition of a national treasure. It has been over fifty years since Jones's breakthrough single 'It's Not Unusual' reached Number One in the UK, and it seems as if he has been a permanent fixture on our airwaves ever since. Songs like 'Delilah' and 'She's a Lady' are by now a part of the nation's cultural fabric - but this astounding success wasn't always assured for the legendary Welsh entertainer. Having already overcome a devastating bout of childhood tuberculosis, Tom Jones married his teenage girlfriend at the youthful age of sixteen. With a young family to support, it seemed far more likely that a career as a vacuum salesman was beckoning.
