Yes he is from Pontypridd, where his father worked the coal mines of the Rhondda Valley! And he is 80 years old now...what a talent, what tonsils! I watched him in duets with Cher, with Janis Joplin, and with Wilson Pickett so far. He seems to adapt to whatever singing style of his guests and make them look good.
Do you think he speaks Welsh?
Here he is with Janis, where you see a sexy little booty-bump that I am surprised got through the censors of the Sixties...
And here is a June 2020 program celebrating his birthday, you don't have to watch the whole 53 minutes if you don't want, but if you go in a ways you WILL see one of those Welsh trains Sir Furry has been showing us!
