  1. Fame & Fortune: Engelbert Humperdinck, the Sixties singer, on dealing with money troubles after tuberculosis How did your childhood influence your work ethic and attitude towards money? I was brought up in India until I was about 10 years old. My father was in the British Army. We had a very comfortable lifestyle. We then returned to the UK, to Leicester. I left school at 15 and, at my father’s behest, undertook an apprenticeship as an engineer. My first pay packet was 28 shillings, the majority of which I gave to my mother for room and board, and so I lived on five shillings a week. Money was scarce. I then took other work in order to support my ambitions to become a musician – my mother had a powerful operatic voice and was a proficient violinist although she never sang professionally, and I’d started to play the saxophone when I was 11. My father was a very disciplined man and he taught me to work hard and to go and make something of my life. By my mid to late teens, I realised I wanted to sing rather than play an instrument and started working in little clubs at weekends. As I didn’t raise enough money in the week to buy myself clothes I got myself a better job. I was very determined to make my singing career happen.
