Have been a Warren Zevon fan since I first heard WEREWOLVES ON LONDON on the jukebox in Brophy’s Cafeteria at Jefferson College, Hillsboro, Missouri, many years ago.

I had this live album on cassette when it first came out and I believe I listened to it until the tape warped from overuse. 

Used to also have a videotape of one of Mr. Zevon’s live performances wherein after he is introduced, the MC has to unlock Warren’s handcuffs to let him perform.

As I would have expected, Warren kept up his sense of humor in his last days.  When he was diagnosed with the cancer that would kill him, he remarked that he would be happy if he could just stick around to see the newest James Bond film. 

He lived a longer time that most of us might have thought and even recorded his a “goodbye” album for us, which was called “The Wind”. 

God bless, Warren.  You were one of a kind, that’s for sure.
