What's the point of singing, if your voice doesn't have character?

I wish I had known his music ages ago. I've only been getting caught up in the last few years. So much to him - he's one of my new favourites.

The voice of everyman, if everyman where hanging out on the wharves singing to sailers, prostitutes, petty thieves and lowlife bar crawlers. A voice that only a one-eyed meth addicted street walker could love but one hell of a lyricist. There's a short list of voices that just suck but they're music is indespensable...Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, David Johansen, early David Byrne...there's a true difference between a great voice and a great rock 'n' roll voice. This is one example. Start with Rain Dogs, Swordfishtrombones, Big Time.

Maybe I do just want to hear the Cookie Monster sing. The Cookie Monster had a unique voice. whatever. Tom Waits is one of the most original voices of all time. Plus Marc Ribot is one hell of a guitar player.

The cookie monster thing is funny (and kinda true of his later stuff) but CM just doesnt have the talent and creativity of The Original Rain Dog! My favorite albums of his all came from the 70s (Small Change, Closing Time, Heart of Sat Night) but you cant deny the magic of Rain Dogs.
