mr tom waits and mr beck
in the interview they talk alot about LA, a city they both grew up in (Waits has since moved to Wine Country to be with his mules, etc). In this exchange they diss Frank Sinatra, X, and my boy Randy Newman (indirectly)
TW: “LA, You’re a Lady.” It was one of those lame, awful … Maybe it’s the rhyme or the rhythm of the name Los Angeles.
BH: Yeah I don’t think anyone has written a definitive LA song.
TW: Maybe it’s the rhyme or the rhythm of the name Los Angeles.
BH: Yeah, I don’t think you can…
TW: But Chicago or St Louis, such cool sounding names. New Orleans. So many songs about New Orleans.
