Description

Warren Zevon BAND CAMP
This Fall with Mike Rasimas

The only son of a professional gambler (his Russian-Jewish father), Warren Zevon was as gifted, haunted, and destructive as any musician from his generation.
 
Zevon’s talent made him one of the most admired musicians and songwriters in Los Angeles—Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, and members of the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and the Beach Boys all lined up to back him on his classic self-titled 1976 breakthrough. But in time, Zevon would burn nearly all of those bridges, eventually retreating to Philadelphia in the early ’80s for an extended lost weekend that dragged on for several years.
 
But in death, Warren Zevon was ennobled as a brave battler of the great existential void, a tough guy with a heart of gold who “kicked death right in the balls,” to quote Zevon’s friend, the humorist Dave Barry. A few days after his visit to Thornton’s house, Zevon flew to New York City to appear as the only guest on a historic episode of the Late Show With David Letterman, wryly bantering about his impending demise with his most famous fan. (Zevon referred to Letterman, who booked him numerous times over two decades, as “the best friend my music has ever had.”) The stand-out sound bite from the Letterman appearance—“Enjoy every sandwich”—became Zevon’s epitaph.

Meanwhile, his genius songs include: Werewolves of London, My Shit's Fucked Up, Accidentally Like A Martyr, Johnny Strikes up The Band, Tenderness on The Block, I Was In The House When The House Burned Down ... and so on...
