Never mind Tom Jones, Mr. Cohen should sing at the wedding..

Post by Born With The Gift Of A G » Thu Nov 18, 2010 3:15 am

The BBC website is reporting that Sir Tom Jones has already offered to sing at next year's wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Well, seeing as the groom's father is an avowed fan of Leonard Cohen, surely it's only a matter of time before we learn that our Canadian hero has been invited to perform at this event?

Any suggestions as to which song LC should perform?

Surely Jazz Police is long overdue a public airing....?
