Could you please update us on what Welsh singer Tom Jones is doing these days?
—Linda Tochenny, Swoyersville, Pa.
Jones, 70, is taking a short break after touring to promote his recent album, Praise & Blame. “It was just me singing live with a rhythm section, no gimmicks, no complicated horn arrangements—just get the song down in an entire take, capture its meanings, its spirituality and its life. I’m immensely proud of it,” he says. The singer and wife Linda have been married 53 years, and his son, Mark, has been managing his career since 1986.
