Tom Waits on Heartattack and Vine
Stephen K. Peeples, Elektra-Asylum Records, Spring 1980
NOTE: With the appointment made to conduct a Tom Waits interview on the Zoetrope Studios lot in Hollywood on Sept. 4, 1980, I listened to my advance pressing of Waits' Heartattack and Vine a few times at my Elektra/Asylum office on La Cienega, and focused my questions. Ironically, I had left Capitol Records at Hollywood and Vine just a couple months before, and now at my new gig as E/A's editorial director, the title of one of my first albums to create a press kit for was Heartattack and Vine.
