    Saw him several times. Waddy Wachtel's solo on "Johnny Strikes Up the Band" on Excitable Boy is one of the all time note-perfect, succinct guitar solos.

    I haven't heard mariachi static on my radio yet...but I'm still listening.

    Great writer.

    Saw him open for the Grateful Dead back in the late 80's - early 90's, at the old Legend City Amusement Park's outdoor amphitheater. Just a wonderful performer.

    Warren Zevon was definitely a great, and sorely missed, songwriter

    A crime that he's not in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

    In college me and a bud drove from central Texas to LA and back in a 240Z on a 4 day weekend to bring back a a Dodge Ram.
    His sister arranged for us to catch him at the Whiskey that night and we headed back just afterward.

    I'd bought one of his cassettes at the show and listened to it for the next many hours driving.
    Got back in time for Monday morning finals.

    Sorry, but Warren still brings that nightmare back to me before I can even listen to the music.

    I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's. His hair was perfect.

    The days slide by
    Should have done, should have done, we all sigh
    Never thought I'd ever be so lonely
    After such a long, long time
    Time out of mind

    We made mad love
    Shadow love
    Random love
    And abandoned love
    Accidentally like a martyr
    The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder
