RIP Ruby. Whosa good dog?
Waits played Renfield in Coppola's version of Dracula. Tom is a frequent collaborator with Coppola. Just listen to the outstanding soundtrack he did for One From the Heart... one of the few times in history that a soundtrack is light-years better than the movie.This update is because of their questions. 'Ray' wanted to know if Tom Waits played "Mr. Renfield" in 1979 version of 'Dracula'... I and IMDB don't know..
BTW, if you're a Waits and Burroughs fan, you should try The Black Rider, in which Burroughs co-writes three songs and "sings" on one of them.
