Happy Birthday Tom Waits

Tom Waits

Tom Waits is fifty-nine years young today. But that doesn’t matter a whit: the man is immortal and you and I both know it. If you’re looking for choice Waitsian vids, I might point you to the two-part Waitsapalooza we did when he was first touring again. Part 1 is here, Part 2 is here.

Thanks to David Gallaher for the reminder.
