Most excellent! He does look cool in person and he's very raspy too!
: Jimmy - I just got to my friend's house in Brooklyn
: after tonight's Tom Waits show at the Beacon -
: I had been predicting that Keith would show up,
: and he did (so did Elvis Costello & other celebs)
: but not to play. Both Elvis & Keith got applause when they
: sat down in the audience. Tom was TRANSCENDENT, words
: can't describe it - but during "Picture in a Frame"
: I thought "I should go to the bathroom. It's a long show.
: Now this is out of character for me, but I got up
: & went down to the restroom. As I was walking out I
: ALMOST RAN INTO KEITH RICHARDS."Hey Man -- um -- how are you?"
: I said. I shook his hand as he passed me. "Better now" he rasped,
: laughing, as he relieved himself. A young handler watched
: his back. I waited outside the bathroom and asked him to
: autograph my Tom Waits ticket. He paused. "I've seen you ten
: times in the last two years," I said. "Well. THAT's worth
: an autograph," he said.
: He looked, by the way, EXACTLY like Keith Richards.
: All in black, skinny, angular, way too cool, grey.
: Someone else approached. He handed my pen back.
: "Thank you," I said and returned to my seat. I'd
: been gone 5 minutes.
