Mr Bad Example
The announcement came last year, and the last album followed, but while I believed the album, I didn't believe the announcement: somehow, some way, Warren Zevon would pull through.
He didn't, of course I'd like to think that he was actually beating the Reaper when suddenly that son of a bitch Van Owen, angry over Zevon's narrative, burst in and gave him the Roland treatment but everyone from Flo and Eddie to Ken Layne owes him big time, and they know it.
Now he sleeps. I'll drink a piña colada in his memory; his songs were perfect.
