The most badass artist in the world, none other than Tom Waits. Started off as a late night piano crooner, went into jazzy beatnik style for awhile, then turned into a whacked out experimentalist in the 80s. Known as Tommy the Cat because of his hobo-like style and his guest vocal appearance on the Primus song "Tommy the Cat".
Tommy the Cat has got a helluva scratchy voice.
