Is it too late to get in my wishlist for 2011?

He never plays outdoors.

He played Bridge School outdoor in 2007, as well as in 99.

He has played outdoors, but he only seems to play outdoors if its a benefit. Does anyone know the reason? I thought he once said outdoors lacked intimacy for his music.

That's too bad he doesn't like playing outside. Tom Waits on the Outdoor after dark would be incredible.

Weird. I don't like indoor shows; one of my main attractions for Coachella is the lack of wall reverb (with 0 chance of rain).

i would second this in a heartbeat.

The only problem with this is the likelihood of sound bleeding in from the other stages while Waits does his thing. That would be a nightmare.

I would only want Waits there as a headliner, and I don't really care about the dipshits that say he can't headline

If Leonard Cohen can play Coachella then Tom Waits can do it.
This not-playing-outside bullshit ain't flying with me.

i would love this, but i'm not sure how his music would do in an outdoor setting. especially on the main. can anyone give an example of a night set on the main stage that pulled off an intimacy?

Didn't someone post an interview last year where Waits stated he hates palm trees too?

No that's the dude from Magnetic Fields

I wouldnt be surprised if Tom hated palm trees too though.

I need to see this man. He doesn't even have to play Coachella, just go on tour again. I now live in a city that good artists actually visit and Tom at his own show is what I crave.

Yeah, I would pretty much kill for this. Tom Waits on the outdoor would be absolutely incredible.

Don't think he's ever played a festival, though I'd love to see him. I think he prefers the "anonymity" of theaters. Plus it may be more a Bonnaroo thing.

Saw him in 2004 and it was stunning.

I'm surprised you like Tom Waits and dislike Leonard Cohen. Their voices are somewhat similar.

he doesnt give a shit about playing in logical towns.

i was flat broke that year and couldnt book it to phoenix. if he ever tours again i will be there.

I'm surprised he played two shows in Phoenix.

I'm surprised he played two shows in Phoenix.

His 2004 North American tour for Real Real Gone consisted of 2 shows in Vancouver and one in Seattle. Then off to Europe.

Uhhhh. What? I don't find this at all. I am not a fan of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits is one of my favorite artists of all time.

Gribbz
12-05-2010, 01:59 PM
Both have low, raspy voices. Different perceptions I guess.

Drinkey McDrinkerstein
12-05-2010, 02:07 PM
Wha hahahaha. Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen sound nothing alike. I would never even dream of describing Cohen's voice as "raspy." It's far too rich and layered to be raspy.

rage patton
12-05-2010, 02:08 PM
Leonard Cohen has a low, bassy, raspy voice. Tom Waits sounds like he ate gravel and washed it down with whiskey.

I dont think I ever specifically said I disliked Leonard. I would just have much rather camped out and get a good spot for Morrissey

Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits do not sound alike, but are both awesome.

Ohhhh. My bad.

I said "somewhat similar." Oh well. Perhaps I'm alone on this.

Genre-wise, they do remind me of each other.

Josh is acting like we're comparing happy hardcore to black metal.

I find small similarities in their music... that's all. Not saying Tom Waits is a carbon copy of Leonard Cohen.

We kind of are.

What musical similarities do you find? Because I honestly can't find any.

daxton
12-05-2010, 05:36 PM
I was thinking more early Waits to Cohen. Cohen has kept same style, Waits has gotten more obscure and raspy. Later Tom Waits does not remind me of anything but Tom Waits.

rage patton
12-05-2010, 05:41 PM
Fair enough. I guess I could see some songs off of The Heart of Saurday Night and Closing Time as similar to Leonard Cohen... but nothing later than that.

daxton
12-05-2010, 05:46 PM
That's what I'm sayin! Agreed.

*SURREAL*
12-05-2010, 05:48 PM
just my opinion . if we are going to compare artists voice . i would compare Cohen with ....maybe Nick Cave . Tom Waits.....with a child born by a mother with Caves and Cohen's seed !

rage patton
12-05-2010, 05:49 PM
That's what I'm sayin! Agreed.

Indeed. I would love to hear Leonard Cohen cover "Goin' Out West" or "Big in Japan" though.

*SURREAL*
12-05-2010, 05:52 PM
in my mind . they are all so different . i love them all . i never even thought about comparing 1 to the other until i read this thread .

*SURREAL*
12-05-2010, 05:53 PM
Why wasn't Nick Cave played Coachella yet ? maybe i need to ask this on the appropriate thread ?

Gribbz
12-05-2010, 05:56 PM
For me, every time I would listen to Leonard Cohen on Pandora or last.fm Tom Waits would pop up in the similar artists tab. I started listening to Tom Waits more frequently and found some similarities in their style of story telling... and their voices sound similar in certain songs... in my opinion anyway.

*SURREAL*
12-05-2010, 06:00 PM
i dont think i ever heard anything as twisted as Waits singing " take off your skin and dance around in your bones " . Has Cohen ever sang anything like that ? If so , please tell me , cuz i eat up lyrics like that !

Gribbz
12-05-2010, 06:03 PM
Tom's lyrics are definitely more twisted/seedy. I want to dive into this further... gonna have to wait a few days though.

daxton
12-05-2010, 06:04 PM
I feel like "Dress Rehearsal Rag" has some haunting qualities.

daxton
12-05-2010, 06:06 PM
I know this is the Tom Waits thread, but any of you own any of Cohen's poetry books?

I see what you are talking about in terms of story telling. I guess there are more similiarities than I earlier thought... but like *SURREAL* here, I had never thought about comparing the two before.

my Aunt who is a big fan is suppose to be sending me some of his poetry . Shes read some of it to me , and it has made me even a bigger fan of his . Looking forward to reading more .

Yeah, it's amazing. I've got his 1st, 2nd, and latest books. Haven't read it all. I fucking love that guy.
