Monday, March 23, 2020

Tom Jones opened up on his relationship with John Lennon in a past interview with Channel Bee. In a newly uncovered video, the Delilah hitmaker recalled how he and nearly got into a fight with The Beatles star the first time they ever crossed paths. He explained how they had first met when both acts were appearing on Thank Your Lucky Stars back in the mid-1960s.

“I had It’s Not Unusual out, my first hit record, in 1965,” Jones said. “The Beatles were on the show.

“I went to watch them rehearse in the afternoon. I’m sitting there where the audience would be later on with my manager Gordon Mills.

“I’m waiting for The Beatles to come on; I want to watch them rehearse,” he remembered.
