The Music Of Mark Lanegan

For those of you who like Tom Waits, Mark Lanegan, the former lead singer of the Screaming Trees, is not only influenced by the man, he is the heir apparent to the Waits legacy.

With a similair cigarette stained and whiskey soaked voice, he sings about late night benders and weird visions that come from a world weary and drugged out mind. All this is put to a grungy blues.

Although, he never has achieved alot of commercial success, like Tom Waits, he has a strong cult following.

My favorite albums are these: The Winding Sheet, Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and Bubble Gum. I hope he has another album in the works.
