Tom Jones waves at you from a pub

Singer and alpha male Tom Jones waves after performing a surprise gig at The Brazen Head Pub, the oldest pub in Ireland, on September 24, 2009. (The draped sweat towel is the tip-off that this is a post-concert moment.) The event in Dublin was part of the Guinness Brewery's 250th anniversary. Tom Jones was born in 1940, so he wasn't the oldest *singer* in Ireland at that moment. Indeed, he turned a robust 69 years old the year this photo was taken.
