I fly to Berlin tomorrow till April 27th for my first of 3 runs this year at Stars in Concert Berlin at the Estrel hotel. It's been 12 months since I last worked there and I'm looking forward to going back.  Luckily I will be working with a few of my friends in the show, Suzie Kennedy as Marylin Monroe, Matt Byrne as Robbie Williams, Chris and Geoff Dahl as the Blues Brothers, so it will be a great atmosphere back stage, there's also a Cher and Elvis trib in the line up.  It's weird going for a month though and living in a hotel, it's like you leave all the rat race behind, you don't get your mail or...

Is it really that easy to be a Tom Jones tribute? In the past 6 months, I know of 2 singers and 1 comedian who have turned themselves in to a TJ trib! Really? It's getting beyond a joke now, I thought it was bad enough with every swing singer now calling themselves Michael Buble, I mean there has to be more than just singing the songs in the same style and as for the TJ tribs, just cause you can go and buy silver hair spray and grow a goatee surely doesn't amount to you becoming him, or does it? Everyone remembers Tom for his great energy and big songs, but now it's like Tom Jones meets the Saga crowd,...

2 years ago, my daughter Amelia applied for the TV programme The Voice! She was lucky to get through the many prelim auditions and was accepted on to the blind auditions ! What a lot of people dont realise is that the first few rounds are recorded as they begin in November and  then the live shows begin at the end of January. Any way, I always said to her, whoever turns round for you first is the judge to go with as they are the one who really wanted you and of course Tom Jones was the first judge to turn for her followed by Ricky and then Kylie, and right from the start she always wanted to go...

I've been booked to work at Stars in Concert for the whole moths of April and October 2015! Probably the biggest tribute review show in Europe, the show room seats over 1000 people and you will always see 6 world class artistes each night! If your ever in Berlin you will see our posters up all over the City, Suzie Kennedy aka Marilyn Monroe is the shows pin up girl and I will be working with her in April as well as my mate Matt Byrne from Liverpool, he does Robbie Williams, so it's gonna be a good working month! The show is based in the biggest hotel in Europe called the Estrel hotel, show days are Wednesday to Sunday...

As an entertainer and a Tom Jones tribute, your health is everything, especially having to bang out massive Tom Jones numbers every night, so when you're not wellI then the things you take for granted like your voice and the energy that you put in to a show are severely tested The last few months though, Ive never seen so many acts go down with this latest virus to hit our shores this year. I've also been hit with it. I got the flu the first week in December, and no, its not a head cold I mean the real flu that puts you down for 10 days and I honestly felt like I was dying,...

Having been involved in tribute shows at home and abroad for many years, I've come to realise that there are 4 types of tribute act. The first is the one who looks like the artiste that they are copying, they don't have the greatest voice in the world but they get by on the look, i know some brilliant tributes like this and take my hat off to them, the second is the sound alike, a bit like me, i don't consider myself the best Tom Jones Tribute in the world but close your eyes and you can picture the original artiste, they don't resemble that person so they do all they can to alter their look, copying movement and...

I went on Radio Merseyside to discuss the new series of Stars in Their Eyes. I have to say that you cannot compare this new series to the old one in any way, shape or form. To me, it's more like a Harry Hill sketch show, and in reality that's what the producers are after, a send up with the contestants acting more like stooges than tribute artistes. When the first series came out in the early eighties, there was no yard stick for how good the acts were and they all blew us away, yet now, being one myself, and having worked with some of the best in the world, I do criticise and look at any trib with...

How many UK number one tribute acts can you have? A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a trib congratulating himself on becoming the Uk's number one act voted by the Agents Association. A day later I received another email form another trib who had been voted the UK's number one? I was really confused! Not just that 2 tribs are calling themselves the best in the country but also I knew nothing about it. A couple of days later I was speaking to a good friend of mine who is a trib and he said that he had also been voted the Uk's best trib by the Agents Association? I asked him who he was up...
