Happy Birthday Tom awaits

I call my Best Of list Interesting Air, based on a Tom Waits quote. Dude is just a cool cat. Even the stuff he puts out I don’t love, I appreciate.

Well, Mr. Waits is 70 today. Born Dec. 7, 1949, Waits pairs an eclectic folk-blues van guarded with his gravel voice. And incredible song writing.

I still say the best example of just how outside-the-box he is, is his 1978 performance on Austin City Limits. Yeah, the same year i was born. It is still one of my favorites, and i don’t need much of an excuse to watch it. Tom turning 70 is good enough for me.
