>Well today is the 60th birthday of one of my idol’s, Tom Waits.  I became a fan about eight years ago, and he’s regularly been on my playlist since.  What an amazing artist –  (singer/songwriter/instrument inventor/actor/photographer/story-teller).  
I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Waits perform twice, and I’m hoping to see him atleast once more before he packs up his performance career.  
Here’s an old shot of Tom, and a photograph he took from his “Oil Stains” series.
