Lowside of the Road: A Life of Tom Waits

Передня обкладинка
Faber & Faber, 2009 - 609 стор.
Spanning Tom Waits' extraordinary 40-year career, from Closing Time to Orphans, Lowside of the Road is Barney Hoskyns' unique take on one of rock's great enigmas. Like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Waits is a chameleonic survivor who has achieved long-term success while retaining cult credibility and outsider mystique. From his perilous 'jazzbo' years in '70s Los Angeles to the multiple-Grammy winner of recent years--by way of such shape-shifting '80s albums as Swordfishtrombones--this exhaustive biography charts Waits' life step-by-step and album-by-album.
