Check after the jump for some non-werewolf music.
I had started to write about his career, the ups and downs, the alcohol and drug problems, etc. You can find all of that on Wikipedia. Instead I’ll let the music speak for itself. Below are a few of my favorite non-werewolf songs. One notable one is missing, but we’ll talk about that next week.
“Mr. Bad Example”
“Keep Me in Your Heart”
He was diagnosed with Cancer (mesothelioma) in 2002. A frequent guest and sometimes guest bandleader for David Letterman, Zevon appeared as the only guest on October 30, 2002. During the time of that show, it was already known that his illness was expected to be terminal. To Letterman he offered the advice, "Enjoy every sandwich." The below video is the last song from that episode.
“Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner”
Come back tomorrow for something more upbeat. I just made myself sad.
