1. 25 years ago people I knew laughed at him, now they realize he was brilliant
and it's too late for him.


Enjoy every sandwich.

5. Thank you for reminding me that there are still people who remember this man....
no one I know does, and it makes me sad.

He is (in my opinion) the Greatest singer/songwriter of the 20'th century (Sorry to Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, and Johny Cash)

Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner(live on Letterman)

Desperadoes Under the Eves (w/Jackson Brown)
This is still my favorite Zevon song,(though not my favorite version)

6. Cool thread Lefty! Here's one of my favorite WZ tunes.
Edited on Mon Aug-24-09 01:43 AM by bluesbassman
Not a bad drum cover. Only Detox Mansion cut on YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BNVPi77NmE

Well, I'm gone to Detox Mansion
Way down on Last Breath Farm
I've been rakin' leaves with Liza
Me and Liz clean up the yard

Left my home in Music City
In the back of a limousine
Now I'm doin' my own laundry
And I'm getting those clothes clean

Growin' fond of Detox Mansion
And this quiet life I lead
But I'm dying to tell my story
For all my friends to read

Well, it's tough to be somebody
And it's hard not to fall apart
Up here on Rehab Mountain
We gonna learn these things by heart

Well, I'm gone to Detox Mansion
Way down on Last Breath Farm
I've been rakin' leaves with Liza
Me and Liz clean up the yard

What goes on in Detox Mansion
Outside the rubber room
We get therapy and lectures
We play golf in the afternoon

Well, it's tough to be somebody
And it's hard not to fall apart
Up here on Rehab Mountain
We gonna learn these things by heart

9. "Lawyers, Guns and Money" is my ringtone.
Also, if you ever feel like sobbing for no good reason, there's this tune he recorded after being diagnosed with terminal cancer:
