about this item
From the sleepy Welsh town of Pontypridd to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, from selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door to sell-out Las Vegas shows, Tom Jones is Britain’s best-loved singer-songwriter. Bestselling celebrity biographer Gwen Russell traces Tom’s phenomenal journey from his earliest years and breakthrough hit "It’s Not Unusual" to owning the nation’s television screens in BBC hit showThe Voice. Not only is his professional life fascinating reading—with collaborations including Cash, The Bee Gees, and Pavarotti, which read like a who’s who of music history—but his personal life is an unbelievably juicy source of gossip, with Tom’s multiple high-profile infidelities being detailed here. At his peak, this most colorful of stars claimed to be sleeping with over 250 women a year.
