Who is Tom Waits?

For real.

Thomas Alan Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. Waits has a distinctive voice, described by one critic as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months and then taken outside and run over with a car." With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock styles such as blues, jazz, and Vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music, Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona.

Thats about as good as can be said about Tom (thanks wiki). I'll try to come up with some representative tracks for you to check out since he has something like 30 albums. You generally either love or hate him.
