His career began with a string of top-ten hits in the mid-1960s.

He has toured regularly, with appearances in Las Vegas (1967–2011), and has had several career comebacks, such as his high-profile coaching role on the television talent show The Voice UK.

His powerful voice has been described as a "full-throated, robust baritone".
