Beck launches interview series with Tom Waits

Singers discuss hot dogs, Richard Nixon, LA lore

Beck has launched a new interview series on his website, which will feature regular conversations between musicians, artists and writers.

The singer’s first interview subject is legendary crooner Tom Waits, with whom Beck discusses various topics including the colourful history of Los Angeles (where they both grew up) as well as their gigs that were derailed by natural disasters.

According to Beck, the series – titled Irrelevant Topics – was created to give artists a forum to discuss “various subjects, without promotional pretext or editorial direction”.
