NOW... IT'S TOM JONES IN SLACKS: Mark Jones, the son of Tom Bloody, has banned his dad from wearing leather trousers and picking up knickers onstage. Jones Junior, who manages his pa, has scolded Tom for being a caricature of himself. Which is a bit like suggesting that Jimmy Sommerville is a bit camp. We're all for giving the family cushy jobs in the organisation, but a manager who thinks that Tom Jones without the gyrating and the slightly cheesey air of on-stage gusset bombardment surely has missed the point? Tom's going along with him, because he's afraid if he doesn't he won't get to work with young aritsts and producers, but it didn't seem to be a problem when he did the Reloaded album, did it?
