Monday YouTube Fix: Tom Waits

Andrew Hitz

Style. Tom Waits simply oozes style out of every pour.  I don't know a single musician with more style than him.  Style is of course a difficult thing to qualify let alone quantify.  But he has it in spades.   In fact, he has so much that he is a very polarizing artist.   I think he's a genius and should thank Rex Martin for introducing me to his music back in the mid-90s.

As a side note, there is only one country in the world where I have heard Tom Waits being playing in a convenience store: +1 for Japan.

This is a live performance from the BBC program The Grey Whistle Test in 1977.

Enjoy!
