  • The part you throw away
  • God’s away on business
  • The day after tomorrow
  • What keeps mankind alive
  • (a story about the guy in a speakeasy who’s only job is to swallow the dice in the event of a raid)
  • Diamond in your mind


  • James Hetfield (Metallica) introduced Tom Waits
    Larry Taylor joined the band for some songs

    The line-up as it was announced:

  • Neil Young
  • Metallica
