That's SIR Tom Jones to you, bub!

The Strib has the goods via the AP:

"LONDON — It's not unusual for Tom Jones to meet Queen Elizabeth but the knighthood was something special.

The 65-year-old Welsh singer became Sir Tom today, receiving the honor from the queen at Buckingham Palace.

The big-voiced singer was accompanied by his son, daughter and granddaughter at today's ceremony. He says receiving the knighthood is "just tremendous."

The son of a coal miner, he was born Thomas Jones Woodward. His string of hits started with "It's Not Unusual" in 1963, and includes "What's New Pussycat," "Green Green Grass of Home" and "She's a Lady," among others."
