Great Drinking Songs (8)

And another Unsuitable Role Model - I've somehow never particularly become a fan of Keef; but it's hard not to admire his cool, his dedicated hedonism, his unashamed ravagedness..... and the enormous respect he inspires in fellow musicians everywhere.

This YouTube video is a great montage of photos of The Great Man and my all-time No. 1 musical hero, Tom Waits, accompanying the song That Feel, which they composed and sang jointly on Tom's fabulous Bone Machine album - a fine singalong affair, slightly maudlin yet rousingly triumphant. [Well, the original video I posted had pictures of the pair of them; but that, of course, got deleted. This replacement just has pictures of Tom.]
