More About This Title Tom Jones


Celebrity biographer Gwen Russell traces Tom's phenomenal journey from his first South Wales gigs as an unsigned frontman, to his breakthrough hit "It's Not Unusual" and beyond to his superstardom as the voice behind "What's Up Pussycat," "Delilah," and "She's a Lady." But it has not all been plain sailing for the legendary Grammy Award–winning entertainer whose shows are renowned for panties-hurling frenzies. Tom was struck down by tuberculosis and bed-ridden for almost a year; he has had affairs, lost his longtime manager to cancer, and ridden the quiet times in his career to come out on top. His collaborations reads like a who's who of pop and rock history and includes Johnny Cash, the Bee Gees, Robbie Williams, Pavarotti, and The Cardigans. This informative and affectionate account includes recollections from famous friends, relatives, and contemporaries.


Gwen Russell's previous titles include Arise Sir David Beckham, Arise Sir Tom Jones, and Jeremy Clarkson: The Biography.
