,,The book collects Waits interviews from Interview, Playboy and other sources, and includes snippets from his adventures in Fishing With John (where he put a damn fish down his pants), as well as TV appearances with David Letterman. The collection features a foreward by Frank Black'', CJM writes.
An excerpt from the blurb, as posted earlier on this blog:
Here is Tom Waits in all his mischievous splendor. From a New Yorker “Talk of the Town” in 1976 to an interview by Terry Gilliam in 1999; from album reviews by Luc Sante and David Fricke to conversations with Elvis Costello and Roberto Benigni; from a recent profile in GQ to “20 Questions” in Playboy and reviews of Waits’s acclaimed new album, Real Gone, this is the must-have book for every fan of the artist Beck has described as a “luminary,” and for music fans everywhere.
