T om Waits: One of a kind

By BILL STIEG
"HE'S AN ORIGINAL," Bon-
nie Raitt once said of Tom
Waits, who went out of his way
to stay in flophouses when on
tour with her last year.
No one who saw the raspy-
voiced singer-poet Friday night
at the Michigan Theatre will
argue with that statement.
Waits, an enigmatic spokesman
for the seedy side of America,
lived up to his burnt-out image'
for an hour and a half, includ-
ing three encores, before stumb-
ling off stage for good.
During that hour and a half,
he growled out more than a doz-
en of his bluesy songs, backed
by a very tight sax, bass and
drum combo. Waits played pi-
ano on about half the selections,
and on. the others he simply
stood- at the mike, writhing
spastically and fishing for cig-
arettes in an old, dirty sport
coat.
HE LOOKED LIKE a half-
drunk, half-storied bum who had
just caught a couple of hours
sleep, probably in a hotel lobby
or train station. Which is just
the image he wanted to project.
Contrary to present appear-
