The time Kelly Jones was told off for loud Tom Jones records but it was actually Tom Jones

Stereophonics singer Kelly Jones has been talking to Zoe Ball on Radio 2 (I guess they’re a Radio 2 band now), and he’s got a great anecdote about Tom Jones:

“I’ve known him since ’97… I played a few gigs with him last weekend actually with Far From Saints down at Cardiff Castle… He came back to my flat once after doing a Jools Holland show with Stuart. We were having a drink in the house and it was going on a bit… the guy above came down – and we were singing and stuff – and the guy knocked on the door and he said ‘Look, I’ve got a really early appointment in the morning. Can you turn the Tom Jones records down a bit?’

“Stuart comes to the door and he goes” ‘What’s the problem over here then, bud?’ And he goes ‘Look, I’ve got to get to sleep [and get up] in the morning. Can you just turn down the Tom Jones records?’… We said, ‘We’re not playing Tom Jones records… Tom Jones is in my kitchen singing!… ‘Look. Come and have a look’. And he sees Tom in the kitchen and he goes ‘Ah right, fair enough. Have a good night’.”
