Here’s a great song Tom Waits did with Keith Richards. They actually first worked together on the Rain Dogs album several years earlier. Which is cool, but I’d worry about what might happen when you leave those two in a room together with a bottle of whiskey. Anyhow, here’s Tom Waits on working with Keith Richards:
There was something in there that I thought he would understand. I picked out a couple of songs that I thought he would understand and he did. He’s got a great voice and he’s just a great spirit in the studio. He’s very spontaneous, he moves like some kind of animal. I was trying to explain “Big Black Mariah” and finally I started to move in a certain way and he said, “Oh, why didn’t you do that to begin with? Now I know what you’re talking about.” It’s like animal instinct.
