when johnny strikes up the band

I was a total a-hole, what can I say?

We read Warren Zevon‘s oral bio “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead” 8 or 9 months and are still reeling. A must read for any music fan period. Grab some pot roast and throw this log on the fire. Zevon in his prime — recorded July 1978 at the Record Plant in Sausalito. More Record Plant tapings to come. Stay tooned.

  1. First, thanks for everything. Petty, Springsteen, this. REM. Lyle Lovett, Counting Crows. You can see my tastes run to the mainstream, but I love-love-love all the live stuff.

    Secondly! Thanks for your recent propensity for zipping files! Since I am going to snag the entirety of these shows, zipping saves me a bit of the Carpal Tunnel.

  2. thanks, and yes dan, i zip because i relate. now if only we could get the gegg to do the same……… hhhhhhhhhhhhho hum.

  3. Can you believe I just discovered Warren today from a myspaz friend who had me go and check out his last appearance on David Letterman. Very funny guy and so talented…. I, of course, knew of Werewolves of London but thought it shit and so therefore never went looking for anything of his. A great loss I would say as I missed ever seeing this fine man who “enjoyed himself to the point of punishing others.”
