Last night, Tom Waits made his way over to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform a cut off of his latest album, Bad As Me. But we got an extra treat when the classic songwriter sat down on the couch next to Fallon and chatted.
They talk about New York, Waits’s former home, and Fallon is noticeably nervous throughout most of the interview. But Waits takes it all in stride, joking with Fallon about the Village People and his cramped hotel room. Waits is oddly charming, like some weird uncle content to tell stories after living a full life . After the interview, he performed the song “Raised Right Men” with a full band in two. Watch the interview and performance below.
