    As of 2005, ok. Still an interesting list:

    Pretty diverse, but there is not one in there that I can say that I am suprised by.

    I went to see Zappa Plays Zappa about a month ago. Tom Waits was sitting in the third row.

    I was expecting to see more stuff from the olden days, like some Muddy Waters or Howlin' Wolf.

    I haven't heard most of the stuff on the list, so I can't really comment. I would like to point my ears at that Houndog album that he mentioned.

    That Marc Ribot album is pretty amazing, but of course he is all over Tom's albums(guitarist from Rain dogs, black rider and later stuff)
    John Lurie (lounge lizards) is amazing too.
    If you are interested in the 'don't go fishing with John' quote you should check out a series of videos called Fishing with John. Mr. Lurie takes celebs fishing and films it. In the Tom Waits' episode Tom gets sea sick and is very grumpy untill they go back to shore to gamble and drink with the locals.

    Does sound good ... The only total unknowns in the list for me are Les Claypool and the Tex-Czech outfit. The Gavin Bryars thing he mentions is super. But what really warmed my heart was his eulogy of The Pogues.

    Apart from the Prosthetic Cubans, I've been listening with joy to the Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog Party Intellectuals album -- and wishing, for the first time in my life, that I lived in New York.

    That Fishing with John series is legendary, I really must make the effort to track it down.

    Lounge Lizards by Lounge Lizards (EG) 1980

    I got into this at the sweet age of 16. Stuff like this sent me off on a tangent that has been lifelong. Too young. I was too young! Great album. And great to see live. They were the support for King Crimson (still playing under the name "Discipline" - which became the name of the 1st 'comeback' KC album) when I saw them in London in 1981.

    Lurie has done tons of interesting stuff since then - Knitting Factory stuff, films, collaborations with the likes of John Medeski, endless lists of fascinating buy-it-unseen stuff.

    the guy didn't have the beatles, nor led zep, nor elvis. At least he had the rolling stones, bob dylan, and sinatra.

    Some very good stuff in there, and a few I don't know. Should check those out.
