Re: Tom Waits to be Special Guest...gotta be honest

If David Bowie came out to guest, which I agree he won't, it would be a dream come true to see them play Let's Spend The Night Together together. Bowie probably can't move like that anymore, but I consider that cover one of the best covers ever done by anyone. I feel if he were to guest, to let that opportunity go to waste would be ridiculous. We already know him and Jagger know how to work with each other (even if it is to disastrous results, and David couldn't love the Stones more. Covered them when that really wasn't being done, had so many songs that he did in the vein of the Stones. The guys a huge fan and those are the ones I want to see guesting.

Is Tom Waits always that animated in performance? What's with all the Jaggeresque pointing? He looked like he was doing an impression of Mick having an epileptic meltdown.

Yeah, he is very animated when playing live. Always did have a chicken dance, except when he is behind the piano. He is also a great front man, very charismatic and strange.

That's not a Jagger impression - he was channelling Howlin Wolf
And even with the mistakes, that sounded freakin great

Just clocked it on youtube, and I would have to say that Tom Waits and Florence Welch were the best guests the Stones have had on with this tour. I'd rank them as good as Malcolm and Angus from AC/DC, if not better.

You forgot "Blind Love" also with Keith, and on the same album.

There's finally a real singer on stage - Tom Waits.

Best ever guest: though, I wonder why they mixed him so far down on Harlem Shuffle and Sleep Tonight on Dirty Work ?

Keith could have done Shenandoah, That Feel, and Blind Love as duet spots too. You cannot beat Tom Waits.

AWESOME. Well done. Get rid of the pop junk singers (GaGa, GS) and bring up some real talent.

I love Ronnie but on this track he's not even close to Brian's slide guitar.

I've never gotten the appeal either. Is it because it's so bad that it's good? Is there an inside joke?

Honestly, Tom Waits is the only other artist in the world I would pay hundreds of bucks to see him. Even more than for the Stones because he appears quite rarely. His last tour in 2008 had less than 20 dates in theatres.

Tom Waits has his own kind of charm...have seen him several times.
But it's difficult for me to view him as "a great blues singer". He is not on a par with the REAL blues singers who so influenced the early Rolling Stones.

I love Tom Waits. I saw him in concert a few years ago and he was amazing. If he had decided to skip the music last minute that night and just tell stories while noodling on the piano for 90 minutes I still would have been satisfied. There aren't that many people that can do that. Actually, he might be the only one.

No - he just happens to have more gravel, dirt and gutso than Howling Wolf.

I'm serious - Tom Waits is the best white blues singer alive !!!
( sorry, eric burden)
The only one I can compare or comes close to the power of Tom Waits was howling wolf. - and he was black. When Tom Waits was on stage with The Stones - he made Mick Jagger look like Mickey Mouse.

What about Captain Beefheart? Apparently Tom Waits changed his vocal style after his wife introduced him to the music of Captain Beefheart.

That's exactly who I thought of in comparison to Tom Waits. Both are hard to listen to, acquired tastes.

Sorry to disagree Seitan but I can't quite believe that you have seen many white or black blues singers live in concert.

If Eric Burdon and Tom Waits were on the same concert bill, Burdon would blow Waits away.

Vocally, his last great albums were Alice/Blood Money, in my opinion. Tom's voice has gotten a little rougher lately but that only shows when he sings with an aggressive attack. For his ballads, he can sing in a more subtle way which can be very endearing. But even those have gotten a little rougher lately, for some reason. So I don't know. Maybe old age is catching up to him?

my general impression at the show was that they had not rehearsed the track that much, possibly not at all with tom, and were kind of winging it. it made it much more fun to watch and i wouldn't have changed a thing, but safe to say technical excellence was not a goal on this track.
