“When I was a kid, you mean?

Well, I remember singing ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky,’ which was a big hit for Vaughn Monroe back then.

I used to like to get up in front of the other kids in school and sing that song because I could accompany myself by banging away on the desk and pretend that I was playing the drums.”

The ever-soulful Tom Jones steps into the spotlight at the Pines Theater at Look Park in Florence, Mass. at 7pm Tuesday.
