Celebrity biographer Gwen Russell traces Tom's phenomenal journey from his first South Wales gigs as an unsigned frontman, to his breakthrough hit "It's Not Unusual" and beyond to his superstardom as the voice behind "What's Up Pussycat," "Delilah," and "She's a Lady." But it has not all been smooth sailing for the legendary Grammy Award... winning entertainer whose shows are renowned for panties-hurling frenzies.

This informative and affectionate account includes recollections from famous friends, relatives, and contemporaries.
