I've been a big fan of Warren Zevon since my early 20's, living in the East Village commune, working a corporate job during the day and being as countercultural as possible nights and weekends...
Warren is really, really ill, not expected to live much longer. This is indescribable.
I've been yearning to go back to singing and writing music, and don't have time now to actually do it. But if I did, I'd do a Warren Zevon tribute concert.
when I have time later, I'll figure out what a dream concert would be. For now, some essential songs:
Accidentally Like a Martyr
Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner
Hasten Down the Wind
Johnny Strikes Up the Band
Werewolves of London
Lawyers, Guns & Money
Play it all night long
Have to admit to knowing the early work better, and I'll need to get all of his albums very soon.
