Tom Jones had his first hit in 1965 with "It's Not Unusual". His flamboyance and knock -'em - dead sex appeal helped make him a major star. By the end of 1970 Tom had sold over thirty million discs, in all categories around the world.
In 1967 he performed for the first time in Las Vegas at the Flamingo. In 1968, starting at New York's Copacabana night club, women would swoon and scream, and some would throw their panties on stage. Soon after, he began to play Las Vegas and began recording less, choosing to concentrate on his lucrative club performances.
At Caesars Palace his shows were traditionally a pantie-hurling frenzy of raw sexual tension and good-time entertainment. There, they started throwing hotel room keys. Jones and his idol Elvis Presley, met in 1965 at the Paramount stage, when Elvis was filming Paradise, Hawaiian Style; after that, they became good friends, spending more and more time together in Las Vegas.
