Engelbert Humperdinck, born Arnold George Dorsey, has been performing love ballads for decades. The British pop singer found success in North America in the 1970s with big hits “After the Lovin'” (1976) and “This Moment in Time” (1979). He had a resurgence in the 1990s, oddly enough for recording the song “Lesbian Seagull” for the soundtrack of Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996). After over 50 years of performing, he isn’t done yet! The 88-year-old has a lot to be excited about this year. He released his most recent album, All About Love, about a year ago. The self-proclaimed hopeless romantic is also the subject of a new documentary called Engelbert Humperdinck: The Legend Continues and is heading out on his farewell tour this spring.

He shared about being able to create new music and continue to tour, “When people go to a concert, they want to hear the old songs they can relate to. I’m grateful that the songs I recorded over 50 years ago are still as precious as when I recorded them.” Humperdinck also teased new music coming next year! He added, “Next year, I will step out of my comfort zone and do something a little bit different. It’s a rather unusual concept album. Hopefully, people will enjoy this new music. I am very excited about it.”

Engelbert Humperdinck talks about meeting Elvis Presley & Dean Martin plus feud with Tom Jones

In addition to sharing updates with fans, he recently spoke about some of his famous friends, including Dean Martin and Elvis Presley. He said about meeting Presley, “One of the most gracious people I’ve ever met in my life. You know when you first meet somebody, they usually shake hands? Well, this guy didn’t. He embraced me. We got on well together. He would come see my show, and I would go see his show in Vegas.”

Humperdinck also spoke highly of Dean Martin after appearing on his show. He said, “He was such a character. He never ever called me ‘Engelbert.’ He always called me ‘Humpty Bumpy Lumpty Dumpty.’ He was the most incredible person I’ve ever met in my life. A wonderful, wonderful man.”

While he spoke highly of Martin and Presley, one fellow singer he doesn’t like is Tom Jones. The two have bashed each other for years and recently confirmed that they still don’t get along. Humperdinck said of Jones, “I think he’s lost his voice. I don’t think he’s got it anymore.

Engelbert Humperdinck opens up about losing the love of his life

Although there is so much to be excited and grateful for, Humperdinck is still mourning the loss of his wife Patricia after being together for almost 60 years. She passed away in 2021 and he recalled, “Without her, I don’t think I would have been where I am today. She was very, very supportive of me, and she put up with a lot. She raised the children because I was on the road all the time. She was the backbone to my life. When I lost her, I lost part of my life. There’s a song that I dedicate to her in my show. It’s a song I wrote 30 years ago, and now the lyrics are even more poignant. It touches me every time I sing it.”
