The Story Behind This Pic
People have often asked me about my FB profile pic.
Where was it taken? What was I singing? What's in my hand?
Well, this pic was actually taken in the back yard of my childhood home on Montpellier Street in Laval, Que. My mom used to play a lot of Tom Jones records before I started school and I loved the music. So, as a young child I started singing and doing a Tom Jones impersonation. Isn't that ironic??
So, in this picture I'm performing as Tom Jones, likely for several neighbours and family, using my grandfather's unplugged microphone (yes, that huge thing is an actual mic!!!) and probably wailing some ballad like Without Love or Delilah!!
I'll be using a real mic on April 3 with The Freakin' Band and Virgil Scott at The Beacon in Wasaga Beach and April 12 at Ernie's Roadhouse in Cambridge with the dynamite Sil Simone!!
I may be even throw in some Tom Jones!
Happy Spring, ya'll!!
