Video Post: Tom Waits inducted into Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame

Tom Waits was inducted into the 2011 Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame and for those of you who missed it (I did) here are some great videos. Neil Young did an amazing job of describing Waits – the persona and his music. Of course, Waits’ speech was the highlight and he delivers some killer lines. This first video includes clips of Waits and his band playing  “Make It Rain” from 2004’s Real Gone and the title track from 1985’s Rain Dogs.

One more video here features Neil Young and Waits playing “Get Behind The Mule” from the classic 1999 comeback album Mule Variations. The visual is a bit messed up, but, that’s how Waits rolls.
