when johnny strikes up the band

Posted by selene on Thursday, July 24th, 2008

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.

    great post!! thanks!

  2. Dan says:

    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.

  3. smangs says:

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

  4. gregor says:

    umm, if i had unlimited space i would zip, but unfortunately i dont live in a never ending fairytale.

  5. smangs says:

  6. gregor says:

    oh i’m sorry whatd you say? cause i have not idea what the fuck it is that you speak of. sorry bout ending the sentence in a preposition.

    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.”
