Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Tom: (revealing his thoughts on sending text messages) I don't get any pleasure from that sort of thing. I have never seen a text message - what's the point? Why not ring someone up? I think a lot of people hide behind emails because they don't like being asked questions. I love being interviewed and asked questions because I like a good chat.

    • Tom: (on doing encores) That's (passing) what we do. Were we supposed to take a knee with four minutes to go? I don't think so. That's not how we play.

    • Tom: We can't put the kids in that situation; it's just too dangerous. And it's secondary. With what the people down there are dealing with, that's the main priority, not a football game.

    • Tom: The first quarter was like a boxing match, with a big punch here, and a punch there.

    • Tom: Because the shuttle is docked, it wouldn't be able to go after them if they got away.

    • Tom: It really hit me in the gut, because I hadn't really done anything affirmative, to sort of grab the president and shake some sense into him. So this had happened on my watch.

    • Tom: Here we're playing a team that went to a bowl game last year - and won. That's a confident group. They're like 11-2 at home the past couple of years or something. They're used to playing well at home, it's going to be a big crowd and I know they're going to be excited. It's going to be a great test for us to play in that environment.

    • Tom: I always feel a bit guilty when Catherine Zeta Jones talks to me and I can't converse with her in Welsh.

    • Tom: You can't be a sexy person unless you have something sexy to offer. With me, it's my voice: the way that I sing, the way I express myself when I sing.

    • Tom: Winning the Outstanding Contribution award is great, because you know you have won in advance. Previously, I have been really nervous during the ceremony because you have no idea if you are going to get called up on stage. This time I could relax and enjoy myself.

    • Tom: Whenever I've been asked to be in a film, directors only want me to play myself... I'm fascinated by the thought of being an actor, but it's too hard. And I think Shakespeare-which has been suggested to me-might be a bit of a stretch.

    • Tom: There's plenty for me to do. There are more albums. I'll record as long as I can and as long as my voice works as well as it does now and for as long as people want to hear me.

    • Tom: I've always worn jewelery but for a time it went out of fashion. Like grungy and punk bands didn't wear jewelery because it was stupid.

    • Tom: I love listening to new stuff, at home in LA I always have the radio on to hear what is happening.

    • Tom: I like to drink to suit my location.

    • Tom: I haven't become an American! Having a house in LA is just where the house is. It's just a convenience thing living there. I carry Wales around inside me. I'd consider moving back there one day. I never really left.

    • Tom: I have had some pretty wild nights! I think the media keeps a very close eye on what people are up to these days. I was out with George Clooney a few nights ago and we had a great time.

    • Tom: As for the music business itself, the key things have not changed that much. It operates like any business and money still keeps things moving.

    Are there even words to describe Tom Jones? Well there are a few that come to my mind. Fabulous, legandary, talanted, timeless, trend setting. Those are just a few. Tom Jones is one of the most popular singers of times. He still packs houses today, 30 years after his career began. People of all ages like Tom. IN his audiences you will find the very young to the very old. He had become an icon for many. Women still scream at him when he appears on stage or when he does his "shake, wiggle and role" routine. A true legend of music.moreless
