Tom Waits: Sound Circus, London
Paul Rambali, NME, 14 May 1977
APTLY ENOUGH, since he lives in hotels for ten months of every year, Tom Waits was born in the back of a taxi. His description of the event goes like this: "I was born in 1949, in the back seat of Yellow Cab in a hospital loading zone and with the meter still running. I emerged needing a shaving and shouted, 'Times Square, and step on it!' "
