The wisdom of Tom Waits

"A gentleman is someone who can play the accordion, but doesn't."
Thomas Alan Waits (b. 1949)
Singer-songwriter, composer

OK, up front, apologies to accordion players everywhere, but let's face it, some accordion music isn't really music…..

Tom Waits takes a bite out of everything he touches. Listening to him sing is a jolting experience, really, you feel like you should feel sorry for him but you know it's the other way around…

He has a heart, and a soul. He refuses to allow his music to be used in commercials.

Listen to Waits in this rendition of "Waltzing Matilda".....
