still crazy for Tom after all these years    

I think this man looks fantastic and should be proud to wear the mankini. The physical strength and stamina required to perform his show must be exhausting (for someone even half his age!). I saw him in Reno last month and plan to see him again in November in Las Vegas. He was my first "crush" when I saw him perform in 1971, a dream come true after watching him on TV for 3 years; all which set the standard in my life for what sexy is to me. Tom Jones oozes sex appeal AND seems to be thoroughly enjoying the life he has created for himself. Sure, his marriage is unconventional, but they have been together for 50+ years so it must be rewarding to both of them on some level. He is talented and seems like a genuine nice guy. I would like to share a bottle of champagne with him and say "thank you" for all countless hours of pleasure he has given me. Hell, my husband would want to join us! Love You Tom!

To Still Crazy for Tom After all These Years,

I must say that you certainly got all my thoughts and feelings down on paper. I know Tom personally, and he is a very nice, gentle man.

Haters. Tom looks great! Most guys should look so good at 38, 48 or 58, let alone 68!!! As for his talent, that stands alone and has withstood the test of time.

The other comments about his marriage and personal life are inappropriate and have NOTHING whatsoever to do with what the man looks like in his speedo! Focus people. Stay on topic.

Doubt his singing ability or charisma at 68? Go see him in Vegas. He puts on a fantastic show, has a great voice and still has the audience charmed.

I want to start off by saying this. Anyone who could possibly call him a mess or likewise definitely does not know anything about a man of wealth, class and dignity. I also would like to see all of your husbands at his age. Im sure none of them will look or have the stamina that he has. Everyone is so quick to judge but we must look at the whole package. Could your husband provide a lifestyle for you that Tom has given to his wife and family for many years? Or would your husband if he had the CHANCE hook up with 26 yr old women and still come home to you and support you? Hhahahahahah I think not!!! They would leave your ass so fast it would make your head spin. This man is definition of "class". So to all of you who would like to put him down. I would think twice before I utter another ill word!

I've enjoyed Tom sence i was 10yrs. old. I thought he was the "Cats meow" back then, still do. I like his speedo, there are guys half his age that don't look as good as he doves. Having seen him in concert last year he still has a wonderful voice. I admit it's not the voice he had in the 60's and 70's "but still holding strong. He really brings heart and soul to a song. He has earned the title "The Voice." The concert i saw him in was awesome. He is so charming, and charismatic and holds an audience captive. My husband went cause my girlfriend got sick, he said he was suprised just how much he enjoyed it, he said he would go again. People who meet Tom always say what a gentleman he is and how kind he is. Tom is human and has faults like the rest of us, the main one i quess is he's loved women like they loved him. He doesn't have a faithful reputation, doesn't pretend to. He stays with his wife because he said he loves her more than any other woman, and they are "best-friends." His autobi. said this was very important. She "Linda" has a phobia that keeps her bound down "agoraphobia" its fear of strangers and public places. Thats why she's seldom seen out in public. He does have another son beside Mark, according to his bio i read by Eggars. The boys name is Johnathan Berkery, lives in Florida, his mom was supposedly a model, there was 2 DNA test done according to the book. He's about 16yrs. old now, but has never met his dad Tom. The bio by Eggers also suggest he has another child by a woman in England, a place called the the "potteries" the mother of that child only sent a code message "bullseye" to let Tom know of the pregnancy but made no demands. She was content to have TJ's baby, according to the book. Tom says he and Linda don't question each other anymore, she just tells him to be "careful" and please don't up and leave with a younger woman, he assures her he his hers until the end and their life won't change. So Linda is no dummy she knows who Tom Jones the star is, she also knows who's number one with Tommy Woodward when he's at home, and she'll want for nothing, except more of him than he can give... for now. The bio "Tom Jones" by Robin Eggar is very informative. Sure hope to get my TJ fix again this year, i'm in withdraw need to see my main man, and he's got new songs to share too. Love ya Tom, get well soon.
