I have been listening to the Glitter & Doom live album a lot lately, and I'm reminded of how much I adore that crazy motherfucker.

I really respect him. He is a truly experimental artist, in every way. Ever since Swordfishtrombones he's been pushing the envelope and doing his own thing. I love artists who have a totally unique sound (hence my love of SY, who despite being as influential as a band can be, have never truly been successfully imitated. I guess that makes them inimitable, like Charles Dickens... Eh?); Tom Waits is similarly without peer. He will always rank among my top artists of all time. Also, he's just an awesome fucking dude.

Who better to play the Devil?

I agree fully. Of course heīs got influences from Beefheart, Harry Partch & Howlin Wolf, but heīs anyway make the mixture of his own. I really love Waits, Beefeheart, Nick Cave & Dr. John, hard to say which of them is best. Also have to mentioned Jon Spencer with this blues based, personal musicmaking mengroup.

I was going to mention Beefheart, but it didn't seem necessary. Yeah, Captain Beefheart was a stylistic influence for Waits, and both artists were experimentalists (an understatement, that) but I think Waits became his own sound long ago. He's managed to pretty much sever all ties with his peers and influences, which is a good thing, and something Beefrheart did as well. In doing so he seems to have become a truly a unique voice in music, and that's why I love him.

When Lou Reed died, I pulled out a shit ton of old albums & CD's and listened to his voice fight the very notion of "evolution" for 50 years, maintaining the same gritty, ironic, off-key timbre, whether he was talking, singing, reciting, attempting to croon (god I love his cover of "This Magic Moment") or screaming... I listened until I cried. Then I listened until I couldn't cry. Then I listened some more. Lou Reed's my favorite solo artist in the history of rock. I can't say that anyone will ever have a shot at taking that spot from him, but if anyone can it's Tom Waits.

(I had an odd premonition that he was going to die in 2013... Glad to see I was wrong, but the man can't live forever. If I outlive him, and get a chance to sit down with all my LP's, CD's, playlists and make my way through them like a crucible, sobbing and laughing-- cause y'know, it's Tom Waits, and he is hilarious at times-- I may find myself with a difficult decision to make.)

Just sayin', the man's importance to me is of Lou Reed level magnitude. My favorite albums are Swordfishtrombones, Real Gone, Alice/Blood Money, Rain Dogs, pretty much every album, because that's how much I love him... Like, even Heart of Saturday Night is a gem in my opinion, and I've been hearing that fucker since I was in diapers.

Long story short: Tom Waits is the genuine article. I have never seen the man perform live, and yes I'm ashamed about it and yes I have definitely lied about it in the past.... I've probably lied about it on this very board, because of the circumstances that surrounded my missing his first UK show in ten years, back when he was touring in support of Real Gone... (It's complicated- I had every intention of going, and I heard a few songs, but I spent that night drinking and being far too rowdy to have been allowed in anyway )

But yeah. Waits is the shite.

To me Waits is more important than Reed, although Lou has been important to me specially in his Velvet albums and now become even more important when I have just listened all his solos. I think it was 1989 when I bought Swordfishtrombones and after that I have been really big fan. My fav albums are Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, Franks, Bone Machine, Black Rider (I think this is his best), Alice/Blood, Real Gone and also the last Bad as Me. But also I love all his albums, even the seventies production.

Havenīt also never seen him (he was nineties in Stockholm, I think after that heīs never been in Europe). I really wish he come someday even some near country to me!

Tom Waits, Nov 2004 Setlist

This was the one unless I fucked the link up. After reading the comments, I kinda want to remove my eyeballs with spoons.
