Just a heads up on Tom Waits. Over on the Rain Dogs list, his road manager has personally said that he won't be there. He's always been good on debunking rumours for the hardcore followers on that site. As much as I wanted to see him at Bonnaroo, sadly it doesn't appear to be on the table.
what's so hard to understand about that? there was a time in my life where i liked that music, but the scene has gotten stale, and my taste has changed. luckily, bonnaroo seems to be getting less jam heavy every year. that's why i prefer it over, say, a festival like wakarusa. it's just different tastes.
11 string* I have sunrise over sea and it lists him as playing 11 string guitar. I don't know exactly what that means, but I like his playing. The songs...not as much. However, I'll probably check him out, cuz he can pick like crazy.
