"Well I'm sitting on a windowsill, blowing my horn"
Ahh ... Tom Waits. One of my favorites. Closing Time was one great song after another. I saw him open for Martin Mull and his Fabulous Furniture at the Troubadour in L.A. in '74 or '75. Halfway through the set Waits, sitting at the piano, reaches into the inside pocket of his sports coat and pulls out an open, half-filled bottle of beer, takes a slug, turns to the audience and says: "came with the coat".

Good old Tom Waits...
I still can remember the first time I heard him... Back in high school, my English teacher and I were to do a jam session, and we broke off with Ice Cream Man. I had never heard him before... It only took me a couple of days do buy his CDs. I still hear them, when the mood calls for some drunk-at-the-piano sort of tune!

Tom Waits may be the coolest person to have ever lived. I got to see him in St. Louis at the Fox Theatre on the Glitter and Doom tour. I didn't think I would ever get a chance, and it was like living a dream for me.

Bill, do you think a .45-1.05 set of strings will work on Woody? ;)

I don't know, but there's 16 feet of snow in the east, and it's colder than a well-digger's ass ... it's colder than a well-digger's ass.
Bill, "Ol' 55" (next year) tgo
P.S. Woody likes GHS Boomers, .10 on top. Big Irv likes the extra lights.

If you've never had the pleasure of seeing the Big Time video, I strongly recommend it.
