Gravel-voiced singer joins rockers onstage at Oakland show

By |

The Rolling Stones had hinted at the possibility of a few surprises on their "50 and Counting" tour, and they produced one last night when Tom Waits joined them onstage to sing "Little Red Rooster" at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The rockers dug into the blues classic, which appeared on their 1965 album The Rolling Stones, Now! A minute into the song, Waits emerged from the background, taking control of the mic and adding his unmistakable gritty growl.
