This is the paperback edition of the critically acclaimed biography. In a career spanning 30 years, Tom Waits has recorded over 20 albums including "Small Change" and "Blue Valentine" and has had his songs covered by a vast array of artists including Bruce Springsteen, Meatloaf and Johnny Cash. His voice was once described as 'like Ethel Merman and Louis Armstrong meeting in hell.' This is a critical overview of Waits' 30 year career including discography and filmography. Patrick Humphries spent an afternoon with Tom Waits when he was composing his Oscar nominated score "One From The Heart".
