Zevon has a 30 year music career and was awarded two Grammys posthumously for his album The Wind. For me the music is one thing and don’t get me wrong the music itself is great but it’s his lyrics that really pull me in. Most of his songs tell stories. They might be about Werewolves, psychopathic killers, or hockey players. If you listen close you can see the entire story play out in your head, it becomes more than just music.
Zevon passed away in 2003 after fighting cancer far longer than his doctors said he would be able to. He was an amazing artist. Enjoy “Werewolves of London” this month, but check out more of his work; you won’t be disappointed.
