Nice of Tom to allow this to happen - if he had a part, which I can't imagine how he didn't.

Thanks for keeping this blog going. I know there's not a lot of Waits news these days - would be great to get another studio album as it's almost been a decade, but as they say any news is good news. Well, hopefully.

Take care!
