Waits as calendar boy

Tom Waits is one of the musical icons featured on the limited edition charity calendar issued by HMV.

His picture by Anton Corbijn brightens up November 2010 with a quote from Dylan Thomas' A visit to grandpa's:
You're a weak little pony Jim to pull big men like us
The 'My Inspiration' calendar can be found in HMV, Waterstones and on for £7.99 Proceeds of the 18-month 2009/10 calendar are going to CLIC Sargent, an organisation supporting for children and young people with cancer.

Talking about Corbijn, looks like the release date for his book with Waits pictures is postponed till April next year. No dates announced over at Amazon yet.

Well, being a huge Tom Waits fan, and a huge Anton Corbijn fan, and having lost a sweet wife because of cancer (Non-Hodgkin), I will surely buy this calendar.

Commenting on the picture of Mr Waits: He looks good! ;-) (Doesn't he?)

Hard to follow a post like that, Harry, but yes, he does indeed look good - regal, in his own way.
