on Tom Waits

Today's Guardian/Observer has a fine piece on Tom, one of my favorite musicians, by Sean O'Hagan. Two inducements to read its entirety:

'I didn't just marry a beautiful woman,' he says, 'I married a record collection.'

'It was like, "Am I genuinely eccentric? Or am I just wearing a funny hat?" All the big questions come up when you get sober. "What am I made of? What's left when you drain the pool?"'
