The more Ribot the better as far as I'm concerned.


I was talking about the album itself and its roots to Exile. If Anywhere I Lay My Head means nothing to you then shame on you.


It's almost impossible to exaggerate the impact of the Stones on post 1980-Waits. They're up there with people like Howlin' Wolf and James Brown in terms of how distinctly their impact shines through. It says enough that, when the record company asked Tom if there were any musicians he'd really like to see play on his new record (Rain Dogs), he immediately shot back "Keith Richards."

Ribot might well be my favorite guitar player of all time, but Tom's work with Keith has a distinctive slurring, bleary-eyed groan to it that is unique to those pieces and which I'm glad is a part of his palate.

McParadigm: accomplishing the impossible.

Keith Richards & Mick Jagger wrote all of Tom Waits's music & lyrics for him to record post 1980.

Is Blood Money the most abrasively beautiful records ever?

Possibly.

If it isn't, it's only because of Bone Machine. But, yeah, it is.

Does anyone remember that website with Tom Waits lyrics and lots of footnotes to explain what all the references mean? something like the lyrics database? Is that website gone?
