Detroit Lewis DOC review; Tom Waits: Tales From A Cracked Jukebox

My favorite songwriter of all time.

Using rare archive, audio recordings and interviews viewers are taken on a trip through the surreal, moonlit world of Tom Waits – a portrait of one of modern music’s most enigmatic and influential artists.

Only three musicians make me cry almost instantly, Hank Sr., Lucinda Williams and Tom Waits. I have about 90% of his stuff, and some rare European live crap. I did an art exhibit a few years ago that were paintings based on his music. The only show I sold completely out of. If you are not a fan, I suggest you watch this DOC done by BBC, and learn a little about this fantastic artist.

Interesting connection between Joker & Tom Waits (H/T- JR)

This is so crazy, I watched this vid  couple of days ago, and JR sent it to me yesterday.

If you don’t know, I am a HUGE Tom Waits fan, probably the greatest American songwriter to ever live (and still living) besides Hank Sr.

He has been so ripped off by actors and musicians for the past 40 years, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Joker character by Heath was based on him.

Just when I lost hope . . .

Mr. Waits comes out with another great recording . . .
