Tom Waits

3.54  ·  Rating details ·  65 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
While his gravel-voiced, bohemian cataloging of America's underbelly has won him a dedicated following, Tom Waits's restless, idiosyncratic experimentation has led to comparisons with Ledbelly and Kurt Weill. Terry Staunton offers an authoritative overview of Waits's influence on his contemporaries, detailed biographical information, and an extensive discography.
Paperback, 152 pages
Published January 8th 2001 by Da Capo Press (first published January 7th 2000)

Good intro to Waits, but hardly essential. Nice examination of his effect on modern rock music in the final chapter.
