A Tom Waits visual tribute in honor of the release of Bad As Me
Tom Waits' twentieth album, Bad As Me, was released today on Anti- records to almost epidemically feverish anticipation from fans. (Gimme Noise's collective thermometer reads 106!) So what better way to pay tribute to everyone's favorite growling crooner than with some choice YouTube clips to visually span his career? Nothing, that's what.
Back in August, Waits and friends released this "Tom Waits Private Listening Party," video. It's a clever little vignette that teases the album drop and ends with Waits ushering people into an old jalopy one-by-one so they can get a real private listen to the record.
