A chat (and a serenade) with Sir Tom Jones

Tom JonesSo, this happened. On Friday I had the chance to chat with one of my favorite Welshmen of all time – the one and only Sir Tom Jones – and as we were exchanging pre-interview niceties, he treated me to a little serenade. Yes, that’s me sounding all fluttery, and it did get a little warm here in the studio. But Sir Tom put me right at ease as he graciously answered my questions about his new album (Spirit In The Room), Mickey Newbury, and his cameo on The Simpsons. The “thanks, love” at the end was the cherry on the cupcake. What a man! If I get the chance to snag a pic with him at Non-COMM this week, you’ll see it here first.
