Tom Waits. Confesiones verdaderas

Con esta rueda de prensa falsa anunció Tom Waits su próxima gira (con dos citas en España y plan anti reventa). Es mucho menos falsa que esas ruedas de prensa sin preguntas o las que marca el guión de los organizadores y la nota de prensa.

Y puestos a olvidarse de entrevistas tópicas, mejor entrevistarse a sí mismo con ese gesto maileriano que tan bien le va a Waits.
I must admit, before meeting Tom, I had heard so many rumors and so much gossip that I was afraid... I was nervous to meet the real man himself.
Q: What’s heaven for you?
A: Me and my wife on Rte. 66 with a pot of coffee, a cheap guitar, pawnshop tape recorder in a Motel 6, and a car that runs good parked right by the door.
Q: What’s wrong with the world?
A: We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.
Q: Favorite scenes in movies?
A: R. De Niro in the ring in Raging Bull.
