RETRO: Tom Waits “Frank’s Wild Years” on Late Night with David Letterman

Posted February 2nd, 2009 by eric

Rolling Stone’s Rock&Roll Daily posted links to two Tom Waits appearances on David Letterman from the early/mid 80’s. Their point was how similar Letterman’s interviews were only a year apart, but even more astounding is Waits’ performance of “Frank’s Wild Years” off Swordfishtrombones, which has always been a highlight for me from that record. And Waits’ suit is bad ass.
