Thanks to everyone who has contributed - there's plenty of you. Buy yourself a drink as well.

Take a drink yourself. Best weblog I've come across, and it's about TOM. A very exciting mix of cultures and opinions. Personally, I'm having a glass of orange juice, because as everybody knows......frazzled Geordies do not drink anything stronger!

I can't help feeling involved... I feel shy, and so great! I'll have myself a Singapore Sling, raise once more (done already) and maybe have myself a (censored) with pasties and G-string - It's only three shots for a doller, and the doll is alive!!!

Congratulations from me too, but no wonder really; I'm not surprised to see everyone's coming here for news. I've been in and out of here several times every day since Real Gone was released and I was trying to find a concert for which I could get a ticket. But I'll keep coming back.
See you guys (those who'll be there on Saturday) in the Carré. I'm really impressed by Invitation to the Blues on the Berlin 2 list... I wish he reverted to that on Saturday.

Eyeball Kid

I only disovered your site at the weekend, searching for news of the tour, as I am going to the London gig next Tuesday. I was there 17 years ago, and am SO looking forward to this!

Sorry, getting off the point. Your site is superb, and I have looked a number of times a day all week, and will continue to do so.

Keep up the good work. I will certainly drink to your success.

Indeed, Eyeball Kid, you have become a most essential source for all things Waitsian....Thanks for all your energy and effort, and just open a window, and you'll hear...the rain sounds like a round of applause...

Hail Hail "The Eyeball Kid"

Thanks to The Eyball Kid for such a great site. Its thanks to this site that after a casual but rightly timed visit that Miffypops Jeff Gail and Vince are going to see Tom Waits on Tuesday in London. Also we have copies of the Antwerp and one of the Berlin shows already so we can get used to Toms style ahead of the action. Thank and Hail Hail to "The Eyball Kid" A wizard and a true star
