Tom Jones asks 'Can I join your band?'

News in this morning suggests that singing super-star, Tom Jones has been dropped by his record label.

Ageing Jones (now 70), moved to Island records last year for a reputed £1.5 million and was expected to produce more of the trade-mark material for which he is famous. Instead, his new album,'Praise and Blame', has been likened to 'an album of hymns'. So bad is the album, that apparently upon hearing it for the first time, David Sharpe, vice-president of Island records asked if it was actually a 'sick joke?'

Jones defended the album and said that at this point in his life he felt that he should be getting in touch with his 'spiritual side'.

'It was time for a change', he continued, 'after all there's nothing quite as revolting as a wrinkly old man, strutting around the stage in skin-tight leather trousers whilst having underwear thrown at him'.

If only he could have had this revelation 20 years ago!

Jones concluded that he would be content to spend the remainder of his career as co-presenter on 'Songs of Praise', with fellow country-man, Aled Jones.

Aled Jones was unavailable for comment.
