Post Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert (June 4, 2012)
I always wondered what Katherine Hepburn would have sounded like, if she had marched up on stage, in front of a world audience, and tried to sing.

Turned out that she would have sounded exactly like Paul McCartney!

He could not hold a note. Nor could he harmonize with the other members of his band.

They all just sounded like a bunch of old men singing.


There was one song which they butchered so much that I couldn't even remember its name. It was that shocking!

Along a similar vein, I've said it before and I'll say it, again: "Elton John's singing - despite once sounding good - now reminds me of how I imagined my grandfather would have sounded, if he had a microphone while bailing hay, feeding pigs, and milking cows."

Surprisingly, Stevie Wonder also sounded like he needed to be in the "I should have retired before the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert" club!

He, too, was having trouble holding notes.

Clearly, however, the best performer was Tom Jones!

He looked great!

He sounded great!

And his smile was so infectious that, when he did smile, I found myself smiling, too!


At one point, it even sounded like he had taken a request from an audience member. I could have sworn I heard him say, between songs: "We'll do that!"

Talk about a powerful performer!

What a showman!

What a pleasure!

Too bad that the Queen arrived right after his bit was over. (She was probably stuck in a line, for "The Little Queen's Room"!)

Sad, because she had just missed the highlight of the show!
