9. Tom Waits – Small Change (1976)
Tom Waits taught me the importance of lyrics; being a drummer I’d always listen to the instruments and rarely notice the voice. His ability to tell a story and really pull you in to his world was revolutionary to me. This album has it all and will have you laughing, crying and reaching for the nearest bottle of whiskey.
