Sir Tom Jones spoke candidly about his singing career in an interview today. The legendary Welsh crooner showed no sign of calling it quits.
The rock n roll legend reflected on the highs of his career as the Sex Bomb hitmaker continues to release chart-topping music.
The 81-year-old admitted that he had no plans to slow down and added he wanted to continue to perform for as long as possible.
Speaking on BBC’s Radio 2, Sir Tom shared that making music is what he enjoys most.
Host Vernon Kay commented: “Your career has spanned more than half a century but your passion and your love for music still resonates so much, purely through what you do.”
Tom replied: “Yes, quite right. It’s something that I never wanted to stop.
“I want to continue to do it for as long as possible. That’s the most fun I get and the most gratifying thing is when I sing.”
He added: “I don’t ever want it to stop. I know that one day it will but thank God my voice has not let me down yet.”
Sir Tom has enjoyed incredible success since he first appeared on the charts way back in 1965.
His huge hits include It’s Not Unusual, What’s New Pussycat?, Delilah, and She’s A Lady.
The musician has found renewed success as a television star after becoming a judge on The Voice which he has held a seat on since 2012.
The legendary Welsh star has released his latest album Surrounding By Time earlier this year.
His latest offering marks the crooner’s 41st studio album as he is set to also go on tour.

Elsewhere, Sir Tom recently revealed a bizarre method he has used to prevent back problems and help circulation.
The Welsh crooner, who entered his eighth decade over the summer last year, explained that a technique called inversion therapy sees him dangling upside down.
The practice can help circulation, and by shifting the body’s gravity can ease pressure on the back and spine.
Those suffering from scoliosis, sciatica, poor circulation and chronic lower back pain are believed to benefit from it.
“In 2030 I am going to be 90 years old,” The Voice judge Tom told The Sun.
“I hang upside down. You know on one of those frames. It’s great.”
He added: “You put your feet in the thing and you flip and you hang.”
Tom also employs traditional methods to stay in shape including maintaining a balanced diet and plenty of exercise.
