Life’ll Kill Ya

September 13th, 2002

Zevon “I was gambling in Havana;
I took a little risk.
Send lawyers, guns and money;
Dad, get me out of this.”

– Warren Zevon, “Lawyers, Guns and Money”

Too late for that. Zevon’s dying of lung cancer.

He avoided the corporate music cheese machine and his sardonic tunes remain unique and true. His zealous fan base includes Bob Dylan, Carl Hiaasen, David Letterman, poet Paul Muldoon, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, the Eagles, R.E.M, Fleetwood Mac and Hunter S. Thompson. If you’ve never heard of Zevon, see this excellent L.A. Times article.

So long Warren. Thanks for the music.
