    Werewolves Of London

    I've noticed that whenever I hear the intro to Werewolves of London on the radio I've been praying that that's what it is, and not that godawful Kid Rock song that sampled it... even the original Sweet Home Alabama would be an improvement. Come to think of it, I could say the...

    Zevon At Hilton Head, Sc

    I saw Warren play in a very small bar in Hilton Head, SC when he had just come out of rehab and was playing in a few small venues to start performing again. We sat at a table right next to his piano while he played all night....a truly memorable experience. It was sometime...

    In Concert

    It must have been 25 years ago that I saw Warren Zevon in concert at Mississippi Nights in St. Louis. It was a great venue. Small, intimate. I sat perhaps 25 feet from the stage (such as it was). It is a concert I will always remember. He had so many wonderful songs: Roland the...
