Happy 63rd birthday to one of our musical heroes, Tom Waits. With so many rockers releasing memoirs these days (Rod Stewart, Pete Townshend, Gregg Allman, Neil Young, etc.), we can only hope that Waits will gift us with one soon. Can you imagine the yarns he’d spin?

But for today, Mr. Waits, we recommend you kick back, put down the whiskey and sandpaper you are allegedly always gargling with, and re-listen to one of your greatest songs, “Tango ‘Til They’re Sore,” off the incredible, mind-expanding Rain Dogs.
