VIDEO: Tom Waits rocks Letterman

Tom Waits made a rare television appearance Monday night on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Waits joined the host for a chat before delivering the first live performance of material from his latest recording, “Bad As Me.”

Joining Waits on stage to perform “Chicago” were his son Casey on drums, long time bassist Larry Taylor, guitarist David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), keyboardist Augie Myers and guitarist Big Bill Morganfield.

Last year, Waits was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame with an intro speech by Neil Young; Tom joined the class of 2011 with Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Darlene Love and Leon Russell.

Tom will appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday.
