"Real Gone" is the unpredictable follow-up to the atmospheric and conceptual "Alice "and "Blood Money," two albums that TOM WAITS released simultaneously in the spring of 2002.
In an exciting departure from the critically acclaimed Alice and Blood Money, Waits? fevered imagination has spawned a new musical hybrid, grafting together worlds both sonic and ethnic from musical traditions both old and new. The 15 track CD features: primal blues, Jamaican rock-steady grooves, rhythms and melodies both African and Latin, what Waits calls ?cubist funk.?
In that sonic cubism, Waits ingeniously finds common ground with hip hop?s cut and paste aesthetic and incorporates some of its elements into his approach. Many of the tracks on Real Gone were built on Waits? ?human beatboxing? on a cassette recorder in his bathroom and bringing those tapes into the studio to have the band play over them. As a result, there are no drums on many of the most driving tracks as his voice provides all of the necessary propulsions. And for the first time, there is no piano.

Chicago had its cows. Toronto had its moose. New York had its taxis. San Francisco had its hearts. And...Phoenix has its guitars. It's GuitarMania, and it's a fund-raiser for Big Brothers and Big Sisters in "the valley." My wifer and I toured the largest central collection of them in Phoenix, that being in front of America West Arena and by Chase Field (formerly Bank One Ballpark). The fiberglass guitars are all very cool and some are even made to honor celebrities such as Stevie Nicks, Alice Cooper and Wayne Gretzky . All are done in themes that range from the straightforward to the abstract. The video speaks for itself.
