I didn't have to play rugby that well, and I didn't have to play cricket that well, because I had this voice.
I think the first time I ever wore a tuxedo was when I played at the Talk Of The Town in 1967, because it was a nightclub and that was the thing to do.
I come from a coal-mining, working-class background. My father was a coal miner.
I have a weakness for watches. I have to stop myself buying more.
You can't be a sexy person unless you have something sexy to offer. With me, it's my voice: the way that I sing, the way I express myself when I sing.
Time is my enemy. Time will catch up with me vocally. And I dread that. I dread to think about life without singing.
I like to drink to suit my location.
Dean Martin always dressed very well but then he was a good looking fella with a good physique so he could wear anything.
I've always felt myself as being a serious singer.

I haven't become an American! Having a house in LA is just where the house is. It's just a convenience thing living there. I carry Wales around inside me. I'd consider moving back there one day. I never really left.
There's plenty for me to do. There are more albums. I'll record as long as I can and as long as my voice works as well as it does now and for as long as people want to hear me.
I'm a lyric man - I'm always looking for meaningful songs.

I got married when I was 16 so I had to do shift-work to make ends meet.
