So I've been listening to Excitable Boy the last few days, it's fucking amazing.
Discuss him here please:
Werewolves of London is a modern masterpiece!
the lyrics to this song are the greatest lyrics i have heard in my lifetime.
i love you all :D
WASNT SUPOSED TO BE HERE!!!
And it was the track that got me listening to more of his stuff, suppose that goes for a lot of folk. I went out and bought excitable boy after getting hooked on werewolves, great fucking album.
Saw him interviewed on letterman a few months before he died, it was very sad but also kinda brilliant, i remember thinking 'that's how you fucking deal with it, just get on with it'
Yeah Warren Zevon - legend.
werewolves of london is probably my favourite track (especially the bbc live version.
some of the eighties albums are a bit hit and miss but early and late albums equally splendid, especially "the wind" which is the bravest thing i have ever heard.
lyrics of "my ride's here" gives me goosebumps everytime.
off to listen to some warren now!
are two of my favorite tunes.... werewolves is a classic as well
but Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner is my current favourite song at the moment. I've only just started listening to him though, which other albums should I listen to?
and by "all", I mean "all".
roland the headless thompson gunner are both classics.
He's one of the sharpest cats ever.
what a sad, hopeless, beautiful album closer. Been meaning to start a thread on this fella after FINALLY buying the remasters of Warren Zevon and Excitable Boy, both of which are stonkers.
Decided by the second track in that I was gonna buy everything he's ever done, in order. Can't wait.
go to the nuggets set, Lyme & Cybelle "Follow Me" - right outta today's playlist. That's him.
