Like Buddy Rich having a seizure

 On the subject of drummers: No singer/songwriter/producer has made more creative use of unconventional percussion over a 44-year career than Tom Waits — probably because (as he put it in a 1983 interview, “I've always been afraid of percussion for some reason. I was afraid of things sounding like a train wreck, like Buddy Rich having a seizure.”

Curious readers might want to check this site that describes all the percussion instruments used by Waits, with interview excerpts that explain the whys and the hows. Consistently interesting.
