Permission to Come Aboard?
A very mysterious press release from Tom Waits landed in inboxes this morning at exactly 10 a.m. The subject line read: “Tom Waits: Permission to Come Aboard,” and attached is a photo of the songwriter dressed as a pirate, complete with an eyepatch and a sword. The only words are “Coming August 7th.”
Waits could actually be announcing a Tom Waits cruise next week?

Joining Waits on stage to perform were his son Casey on drums, long time bassist Larry Taylor, guitarist David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), keyboardist Augie Myers and guitarist Big Bill Morganfield (son of Muddy Waters). Amazing players and another genius Tom Waits performance.
