We are immensely proud to announce that Tom Waits is now formally a 2011 inductee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Waits was selected amongst a group which includes songwriter and performer Neil Diamond, New Orleans legend Dr. John, Darlene Love, The Alice Cooper Band and more. As the Hall Of Fame writes about Waits: “Beginning with his first album in 1973, Tom Waits has carved out a unique place in rock & roll. His music mixes Chicago blues, parlor ballads, beat poetry, pulp fiction parlance and – when you least expected it – heart-breaking tenderness. His enormously influential live shows combine elements of German cabaret, vaudeville and roadhouse rock.”  You can read the rest of their description here. Read More
