Tom Waits’ Straight To The Top Journey, Now Gets a Institutional Recognition

Tom Waits
I’m not sure what it means, to be sculptured in the Rock’N’Roll Hall Of Fame wall of eternity, after all – if you made it there, that means you are already known to 3-4 people.
But whatever makes Tom Waits happy, makes me happy (minus the 5AM hookers, not my thing) – or at least this wonderful news – Tom Waits will be introduced to the RNRHOF by no other then Neil Young, according to Tom Waits’ website.

Except for Waits, the 2011 ceremony will welcome Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Leon Russel and Jac Holtzman (Elektra Records). The ceremony will take place on March 14th at 8:30pm EST at the famed Waldorf-Astoria and be broadcast exclusively on Fuse TV Sunday, March 20 at 9pm ET

I think this song sums it all.
