Warren Zevon

He was an underrated genius.

The first concert I saw was X opening for Warren on the "Sentimental Hygiene" tour. I was sad when he died and glad he faced it with humor, saying he was waiting for his ride to get here, they finally did.

My favorite singer-songwriter. His first album on Asylum, WARREN ZEVON, is something everyone should know.

As he said, "Enjoy every sandwich."

I loved Excitable Boy. His voice was more sexy than Elvis' to me.

He's another one I know next to nothing about. I only know the name through R.E.M.

Great songwriter. Came form a Mormon-Jewish background like Chelsea Handler.Werewolves of London still holds up after all these years.Lawyers, Guns and Money was another one of his other highlights.

"Werewolves of London" is alright, but he has so many better songs on his first two or three albums on Asylum. The entire first album is better than "Werewolves," so if you liked "Werewolves," you're in for a treat.

Love Warren Zevon. Sentimental Hygiene is one of the best albums of all time.

"Send lawyers, guns and money, the shit has hit the fan". One of my favorite lyrics of all time.

Lawyers, Guns and Money is one of my favorite songs.

He picked me up and he threw me down, and he said, "Please don't hurt me mama".

Talented, but an absolute jerk, like so many rock stars are. He was bi-polar; maybe that had something to do with it.

Was he a jerk after he got sober? Some people stop drinking, take stock of their lives, and change. He always came across as being pretty frank about his problems post-recovery.

Personally, my favourite song of Warren Zevon is 'Looking For The Next Best Thing'

It's so comforting, sincere and refreshing after receiving a big frustration.

I've gotta go, my ride is here.

Probably his best song, R15. It or "Carmelita."

The whole album is a winner from first note to the last "Look away down Gower Avenue."

And if California falls in to the ocean

Like the Mystics and statistics say it will

I predict my hotel will be standing

Until I pay my bill...

Reminds me I recently found a bunch of old CDs packed in a box in my garage, including Warren Zevon's eponymous first album. Ripping it into iTunes this very moment.

Thank you DL for keeping Warren in your hearts.

Played Mohammad's Radio on a sub rosa pirate station once. Sort of like launching a good spirit into the aether. Felt very good.

"I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" is a good bio, I really liked "Excitable Boy" - Jennifer Warnes & Linda Ronstadt sing the back-ups.

by Anonymousreply 2503/04/2013

Now on iTunes: "For My Next Trick, I'll Need a Volunteer"

I can't believe he's dead. I know his death wasn't tragic like John Lennon's murder, but really, John Lennon meant nothing to me after "How Do You Sleep?"

"Mohammed's Radio" just popped up for a listen.

I loved him, but I liked Lowell George's songs even better!

by Anonymousreply 2803/05/2013

My favorite Lowell George songs are "Willing" by Linda Ronstadt and the song about Lowell George that Jackson Browne wrote for his (George's) daughter after George died, "For Missing Persons."

ooh, I'd like to meet his tailor.

by Anonymousreply 3003/05/2013

That's "OF Missing Persons."

Now playing: Keep Me in Your Heart, by Jorge Calderon and Jennifer Warnes, from the tribute album ENJOY EVERY SANDWICH.
