Tom Waits

December 13, 2006

There was a great article on Tom Waits as an American icon in the Guardian a couple of days ago.

My favorite part is when we are told that Waits has “turned American music into the speech-song of ordinary men and women caught in that murky bad-smelling alleyway between the juvenile rhetoric of the ‘American dream’ and the unforgiving adult reality of contemporary life.”

Well, obviously.

    Hey buddy,

    Thanks for the Christmas note. It’s good to know what’s happening with you and the family, and I’ve bookmarked the Blog. 😉

    Yeah, Waits… what more is there to say?

    Stay warm,

    David
