I related to nothuman (on another forum) that I had seen Tom Waites live at a club on the Sunset Strip. I was hammered on Black Beauties and whatever alcohol was passing in front of me. It happened that Bette Midler was in the audience and got on stage for a couple songs.
I also shared that I had been in the dressing room at the Whiskey A Go Go and actually touched Jim Morrisons' signature on the dressing room wall. I was invited there by the guy on the very left of the record cover, Louis. (Louis and I sat together to watch Tom Waites).
The Zippers were friends from the South bay and I was there in the audiance, supporting them. This selection isn't the best song they did...not by a long shot. But it's what I've got. the zippers - he's a rebel - YouTube
