London: Veteran singer Tom Jones says he blames himself for his wife Linda’s death.
In an interview to the Daily Star Newspaper, the “Delilah” hitmaker admitted that he did not do much for Linda, who died of lung cancer in 2016, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
When asked if he blames himself for his wife’s death, he said “Yes. You do start to think, ‘What if I had forced her to go to the doctors? Because she didn’t go. You think, ‘S**t, maybe I should have said she had to’.
“After I lost my wife, lyrics to a Bob Dylan song reminded me of her. It’s called ‘What good am I?’ I was reading into the lyrics thinking , ‘Jesus Christ …was I partly to blame? Should I have woken up before?
“By the time we found out about her cancer it was too late. I thought, ‘What could I have done?’. It started to mean more. So that song is very touching,” added the 78-year-old.
