Warren Zevon Tonight with Dave

Personal friend-o-Warren Brian Linse reminds us that tonight is Warren Zevon night on David Letterman, in fact the show is devoted to him.

You can see a preview clip from the show here.


Dave – “Do you now know something I don’t know?”

Warren – “I know how much you are supposed to enjoy every sandwich.”

I will quote myself (not unusual) from last week:

    As thirty-year fans of Warren Zevon, we have been following sadly but proudly as he has risen to a personal level of nobility matching that of his exemplary song catalog since the announcement of his terminal cancer.

    As Shakespeare noted, all’s well that ends well, and Warren is going out in style with mordant humor intact and head held high after a decidedly up and down career as a person. Let’s look forward to his appearance with David Letterman on October 30 as a time to celebrate and appreciate what Warren has given us over the years, and not a time to get weird and maudlin.

    If you want to get a sense of Warren’s perspective on things, check out the cover of his new Genius collection, which every sentient being should own by the way. For our several reports and discussions of Warren, see here, here, here, and here.

I was right about all that.
