I really should pick up some Tom Waits. Anyone have a good suggestion for a starting point?

That was awesome to read. So glad he didn't leave Bruce off because of the constant comparisons. Loved his write-ups on each artist.

kinda tough to point out a single tom waits album as a starting point since he has soo many and all of em are different.

songs by him I recommend are: Cold Cold Ground, Singapore, Goin' Out West, Make it Rain, Chocolate Jesus

If someone's interested, I made a playlist on Spotify based on his recommended songs: http://open.spotify.com/user/fuckedforever/playlist/32WGBGFxGRffVWeolaaGTw

Since there are no Dylan songs on Spotify I left it out.

Maybe it's a language thingy, I say not ok to stuff that can be out of line but I still think it's funny and laugh about it. I didn't mean to say "you can't say that" I just thought it was funny but kinda awkward (or something). I hope you understand what I mean, sorry for my english..

Understood. By the way, your English is actually very good. I always found it funny that many Europeans are self-conscious about their English-speaking skills considering most Americans (like myself) can barely speak one language.

Yeah, but I couldn't find the one (well, I found covers) Brian recommended.

That was a really awesome list. Like, that is truly, truly awesome. I wish I could think of better adjectives but that's all I'm coming up with. As a Bruce fan and someone who probably wouldn't have gotten into the band without the Bruce connection, it's cool to read him talk straight about the comparisons and all.

I'm so glad Brian listed The Afghan Whigs / Greg Dulli / Twilight Singers. I've been telling anyone who will listen that I think The Whigs / Greg Dulli is one of most underrated bands / singers in the last 15-20 years. Every CD they put out is a musical journey...and as I posted on Brian's blog---They are in my Top 3 bands to take on a deserted island..hands down. Love them.

Brian said to check out Twilight Singers, and that's cool...but the Black Love CD or Gentlemen CD from The Afghan Whigs just kill it.
