    Good morning folks. A Gannon Wanderer (blue beaver felt and charcoal trimmings) was my hat during the dog soirée. Morning temps are the highest of the day at 43'f (6'c).

  5. They are obviously buying it for the celebrity connection because that is not a very nice hat. I’ll also confess that I don’t have any idea who Tom Waits is.

    I agree about the first part, Brent. I'm in shock, though, that you don't know who Tom Waits is. However, you're forgiven as you know so much about hats.

    What I kinda remember about Tom Waits is that he is known for his low gravely singing voice and songs about folks with less than an ounce of hope left.. but they have that. He never had too much commercial success… but he has a strong following for his very recognizable voice. His biggest hit I believe was a success as sung by Rod Stewart - Downtown Train.

    On a side note I think I remember from my days in television production…. While he didn’t have too much “commercial success” … his very recognizable voice was highly sought after for “commercial purposes” advertising…. Which he adamantly opposed and had to litigate to keep his voice and music out of advertising campaigns

    and on the hat topic… he is wearing a Fedora in his video for Downtown Train.

    Apart from being a great singer/songwriter and musician, Tom Waits is also known for his acting in several movies and his theater productions with Robert Wilson.
    I can recommend, among others, the film Down by Law, and the sound track to the musical play Black Rider.
    His compilation 3 cd set "Bawlers, Brawlers and Bastards" is a good place to start if you want to hear more.
    Needless to say, I'm a great admirer of his work :)

    Tom Waits when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Neil Young: “They say that I have no hits and that I’m difficult to work with…and they say that like it’s a bad thing.”!
    He’s got loads of beautiful songs, which that gravely voice works perfectly for, think Martha or Grapefruit Moon, but Tom Traubert’s Blues may well be my favourite. I’ve never seen him without a hat of some description - usually a stingy brim, but also caps.

    Down by Law was fantastic! I love the song Jockey Full of Bourbon that he did for the movie, too.
    So I guess you’ll be picking up the hat then, Steve.;)

    I agree on the hat, but you gotta fix that Tom Waits hole in your life.

    The first time I ever saw Tom Waits was on a show with Martin Mull called Fernwood 2nite, a spin-off of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. He played "The Piano has been Drinking," then walked over and sat for an interview, whereupon ha pulled out a bottle of Harvey's Bristol Cream and sat it in front of him.

    Martin Mull watched this and said, "Well it's not every day one our guests has a bottle in front of them!"

    To which Waits of course replied, "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!"

    And a fan was born...
