Tom Waits rolled out of Los Angeles' dirty streets with the look of a tramp, the voice of a broken angel and a sound that combined blues, vaudeville, cheap whiskey and jazz. In 1977, he met photographer Anton Corbijn; it was early in both their careers, and it has led to 35 years of Corbijn shooting portraits of the iconoclastic private musician, showcased in the coffee-table book "Waits/Corbijn '77-'11" (Schirmer/Mosel: 272 pp., $200).
