The legendary blues-rocker that is Tom Waits first appeared on the scene in the early 1970s. Waits' debut album came in the form of 1973's 'Closing Time', when he was a scant 24 years old. His unmistakable gravely voice has won him hits with songs like 'Downtown Train' and 'Martha', and continues to draw fans.
