Fucking Tom Waits. How is this thing ever going to get reviewed and not have the name Tom Waits dropped? The vocals are a dead on for Mr. Waits. Many people don’t realize that Tom Waits played the role of Buck Merrill in the 1983 film, The Outsiders (which also featured a number of young, up-and-coming actors including Patrick Swayze, Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez, and more). Interestingly enough, in 1990, a fourteen-episode TV series that served as a follow-up to the film had the role of Buck Merrill being played by one Billy Bob Thornton.
