Tom Jones Knighted

Sir Tom says it's not unusual to love the Queen Wednesday March 29, 02:29 PM

LONDON (Reuters) - Welsh singing legend Tom Jones was knighted by Queen Elizabeth on Wednesday in honour of the hip-swivelling star's four decades of performing.

Jones, 65, whose real name is Thomas Woodward, received the accolade for services to music at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London.

"It is fantastic. I love seeing the Queen and I have always been a royalist," he told the BBC afterwards.

"She is lovely and she still is lovely. She has got a great smile and her whole face lights up when she smiles."
Sir Tom -- known as Jones the Voice in his homeland -- had his first number one hit in 1965 with "It's Not Unusual" and went on to notch up a series of chart successes including "Delilah", "Green Green Grass Of Home" and "Sex Bomb".

A contemporary of Elvis Presley, he has won a new legion of fans in recent years performing with modern stars such as Wyclef Jean and Robbie Williams.

I guess it's not unusual to box in a bikini either.

Quite true. Honestly, Sex Bomb is probably the greatest song ever written. Bono wishes he could still write like this.

I must react to claims of those who say that you are not all that huh, huh,
