October 15, 2009 - If Jack Kerouac was alive today, he might be found hanging out with Tom Waits. The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, composer and actor seems to channel the vibe of the beat era--in fact he even recorded the song "On the Road" with lyrics taken from Kerouac's novel, for his 2006 set "Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards."
October 13, 2009 - Tom Waits plans to release a collection of live tracks recorded during his 2008 sold-out US and European tour on Nov. 24. The two-disc album, "Glitter and Doom Live," contains 17 cuts recorded during 10 different tour stops in cities including Birmingham, Edinburgh, Atlanta, Paris, Milan, Jacksonville and Dublin, according to a press release.
