    • Jeff the best way to answer your question is with a verse from a poem.

      “To be born in Wales,

    The Creative Community for Peace is a group of creative artists and their fans.who support artists being bullied and threatened by the BDS, and expose BDS disinformation. They are doing a great job.

    Let’s hope that more and more performing artists refuse to be intimidated by this spiteful little neo-fascist gang of Israel-haters.

  3. I wasn’t a huge Tom Jones fan when I was younger, but I really admire him now. And yes, I agree with all the comments above–he can still sing!
