His Reality Needs Imagination Like a Bulb Needs a Socket: Waits on Waits

Chris Klimek

Having had the opportunity in recent months to interview (with varying degrees of success) more and more musicians, artists, and other persons of note (some of whom are world-class interviewers in their own right), I find myself increasingly appreciative of the interviewer's art. Getting people to relax and talk about themselves is not as easy as Terry Gross makes it sound, people! That's why today I am particularly in awe of one journalist's uncanny ability to get inside the mind of his subject in a way that uncovers something of the man's creative instinct while leaving his mystique undimmed.

Ladies and germs, I give you Tom Waits's interview with Tom Waits.

I only wish he would have asked himself why his Glitter and Doom Tour is currently scheduled to come no closer to Our Nation's Capitol than Atlanta. Boo! Hiss!
