An Interview With The Coolest Man In The World

Having just listened to Tom Waits's excellent new album I thought I'd supply this link to an interview with Waits who, for me, is coolest man in the world. Much of the album gets played here and if you like Waits then you'll probably like this a lot. Unfortunately the interview is on NPR with Terry Gross who very much speaks with that awful, contrived, NPR voice but Waits is his usual charming self: when Gross tries to throw him with an obscure Dada reference he quotes an entire Dada poem back at her. Check and mate.
