From the Publisher :

A look at the music and legend of Tom Waits, the poet laureate of the American night. Wild Years: The Music and Myth of Tom Waits retraces the long road that Waits has travelled and explores the music that made him a legend. Jay S. Jacobs looks at the towering myth that Waits has created for himself, a larger-than-life persona of neon bar lights and desperate dreams. It reveals a complex, brilliant, and fascinating man comfortable portraying the role of off-beat music legend and yet resolutely protective of his private life. Poet laureate of the common man, Waits is the lifeline between the great Beat poets and today's rock & roll heroes. He's old enough to be your dad and cool enough to be your hero. Waits is one of the few truly original musicians recording today. He's also the rare singer who can actually act, and he has put together a respectable body of work in movies. He's a modern Renaissance man. From his early years when he embraced the beatniks and the grimy realities of life on the streets, to more recent tonal experiments, Waits stubbornly followed his own path and vision. His 1999 album, Mule Variations, was the best selling of his thirty-year career.

From the Author :

Description du livre ECW Press,Canada, Canada, 2006. Paperback. État : New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Newly updated to include his critically acclaimed post-millennial work, this look at Tom Waits?both the reality and the myriad myths?reveals the man behind the curtain. A tale of how a self-taught, drunken hipster in roach-killers and a dirty beret has influenced a generation of musicians with his sound, warmth, and willingness to take chances, this biography shows how he has moved between sideshow barker and evocative troubadour with ease, recording almost 20 albums that range from cabaret to movie soundtracks. Waits encapsulates the wink-and-nudge of a Vaudevillian and the rhythm and heart of a beatnik, and his fans span a similarly wide spectrum, drawn in by his candor and humor. But off stage, he has resolutely protected his private life even as he and his wife-collaborator, Kathleen Brennan, publicly experiment with innovative recording techniques and instrumentation. A complete discography, as well as a look at Waits film and theater careers, rounds out this exploration of a great, self-styled, genre-hopping enigma?the poet laureate of the streetlit American night.
