 I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, an oral history of Warren's life edited by his ex-wife, Crystal Zevon, will be published tomorrow. If you were a fan, you'll find it riveting, and sometimes shocking. Here's the NY Times review.

"...Mr. Zevon remained stuck in a commercial vacuum."

Should we even ask what he was doing that prompted him to get stuck in a vacuum?

I'd like to edit my ex-husband. But I am afraid of prison.

So, he's been "Hoovered"?

I, for one, miss Warren Zevon.


'mad genius', yeah. miss ya, warren.

I always wanted to meet his tailor.

"among his obsessive-compulsive tics was buying the same kind of gray T-shirt over and over again."

Hmmm...Dave buys the same type of blue shirt over and over again...

*Seconds Mr. C and Queensbee.*

"I'll sleep when I'm dead" - Zevon

Sleep well, pal. Miss you.

Dear God,
When I die, please don't let my oral history be edited by my ex wife...

*snork* @ casey!

Tell me you don't have the piano hook for "Werewolves of London" playing in your head right now.

Who's that guy over there at the Trader Vic's bar? His hair is *perfect*. I'd like to meet his tailor.

Dear Warren Zevon,

Thank you such much for writting Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner. It is one of my all time favorite songs. I am just sad that I didnt find it until after you had passed away.


Send lawyers, guns and money...

One of my favourite song excerpts.

His first 5 or so albums were each just gems...
"Big gorilla at the LA Zoo
Snatched the glasses right off my face
Took the keys to my BMW
Left me here to take his place.

I wish the ape a lot of success
I'm sorry my apartment's a mess
Most of all I'm sorry if I made you blue
...I'm bettin' the gorilla will too..."

"Keep Me In Your Heart" - saddest damn song I ever heard.

I'm only 23, but I remember hearing Zevon since I was a tot. Hearing "Mr. Bad Example" bellowing from the garage when my dad would work on the cars, singing "Down at the Mall" anytime we'd go to the big mall (up on the escalator, darlin' we will ride), and any family gathering to this day(as is Irish custom) we belt out "Send Lawyers, Guns and Money....HUH!!!!!" at the top of our lungs...

We miss him, and I still have all his albums on my iPod. Zevon lives on in the next generation.
