Even more recent than dying last night? Man, I knew Zevon was a talented guy, but sheesh! That's downright scary.

Warren, the Lifeless Singer-Songwriter is his name, LA's bravest son, You can still see his lifeless body pounding out the songs, And the muzzle flash of Warren's dark black wit...

His last album, THE WIND, isn't his best, but man, who can ever hear Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" again, and not think of Zevon laying down that track while walking up the steps? I'll be keeping Zevon in my heart for a long while.
