Tom Waits recorded an instrumental version of his well known song, “Innocent When you Dream” for the player piano in the lobby of artist Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel, which is located in the shadow of the wall separating Palestine from Israel.

Congrats from Tom and Kathleen to Bob Dylan on Winning the Nobel Prize:

It’s a great day for Literature and for Bob when a Master of its original form is celebrated. Before epic tales and poems were ever written down, they migrated on the winds of the human voice and no voice is greater than Dylan’s.
