16. Sir Tom Jones: Don't Hold Back
Sir Tom Jones' career in pop and show business has spanned seven decades with 100 million record sales to his name. Now aged 80, he's still releasing music and preparing to perform live in the summer.
In their conversation, Joe hears Sir Tom's 'fairy tale' story from singing at his cousin's weddings in the valleys of South Wales, to meeting Elvis in LA and performing in Vegas. Tom speaks candidly about losing his wife Linda in 2016 and how exercising in the gym and therapy helped him come through his grief. He describes how performing live to his fans helped him get back on his feet, and how a daily dose of 'inversion therapy' keeps him feeling strong.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
