Tom Waits indlemmet i Rock N Roll Hall of Fame

16. marts 2011

“Thanks, everybody, this is very encouraging. Songs are really just interesting things to do with the air. I was fifteen when I snuck in to a club to see Lightning Hopkins. I wore an overcoat, put white-out in my hair, drew on a mustache and said in a deep voice, “One ticket please.” I saw Lightning walk through a door in the back room that said, ‘Keep Out!! This Room for ENTERTAINERS ONLY.’ At the moment, I realized I wanted to get into show business as soon as possible.” (fra Waits takketale i mandags)

Efter Waits optræden replicerede Elton John: “Hvis Jackson Pollack kunne synge, sÃ¥ ville han lyde som Tom Waits”. SÃ¥ kan man jo fundere over, om det er en kompliment eller mÃ¥ske det modsatte…

Også Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Darlene Love, Leon Russell og Dr. John blev udødeliggjort.
