Love That Album Bonus episode - Interview with Barney Hoskyns about Tom Waits

I present to you a bonus episode of Love That Album, a sort of companion piece to the forthcoming episode 46 of the podcast.

Episode 46 proper will feature a discussion between Alex Ladd (aka Loaf) of the Silva and Gold podcast and myself about two great albums by Tom Waits – “The Heart of Saturday Night” and “Rain Dogs”.

This bonus episode however, features an interview I had with acclaimed rock biographer and journalist Barney Hoskyns. Barney has written a superb biography of Tom Waits called “Low Side of the Road”, and we discuss these albums and Waits’ career in general. He was absolutely fascinating to speak to, and I hope you enjoy our chat. I’d urge any fans of Waits to get hold of his book.

The two discussions together would have made the show length a bit daunting. I hope you enjoy this chat with Barney Hoskyns and the forthcoming one with Loaf.
