Tom Waits - devil's huckster, rumble'n'clanker, ringmaster extraordinaire. Demiurgic lyricist and endlessly quotable - "Oh, I'm not a percussionist, I just like to hit things.", "I hate Disneyland. It primes our kids for Las Vegas.", "I like beautiful melodies telling me terrible things.", "A gentleman is someone who can play the accordion, but doesn't."
