you’d find in the supermarket today. “Johnny Appleseed” didn’t expect his
fruits to be eaten whole, but rather made into hard apple cider.

Born Arnold George Dorsey in Madras, India, on May 2, 1936, A self-described
dreamer and loner, Humperdinck dropped out of school at the age of 15. After
a stint doing National Service in Germany, he began singing in men's clubs,
but it was a hard way to make a living. Singing under the name Gerry Dorsey,
Humperdinck scraped by financially. His financial pressures increased when
he married his wife, Patricia. The couple eventually had four children
together.

In an attempt to reinvent himself, the performer followed the advice of his
new
manager, who also oversaw fellow singer Tom Jones. His manager changed his
name to Engelbert Humperdinck, the same name as the late 19th century German
composer and creator of the opera Hansel and Gretel
