Warren Zevon

Discussion in 'rec.music.percussion' started by Randal Walker, Aug 25, 2003.

  1. Anyone catch this special on VH1 lastnight on the making of Warren's new cd?
    Many how very sad but very kewl it was to watch the behind the scenes. had
    me in tears for the same illness that is taking Warren took my father a few
    years ago, very tough to sit and watch it all over again.
    Some very kewl studio footage of Keltner recording his parts, plus the
    countless others whom have come to pay respects to such a fine musician.
    VH1 did a good job with the special..............

    Hats off to Warren for letting the cameras roll in such a dark and tough
    time in his life.

    I was looking forward to seeing that, too. I thought they did a
    great job, and Warren really opened up quite a bit.

    The Keltner footage was great. I live seeing him play, because he's
    so unorthodox in everything-- approach, technique, set-up. And of
    course, there's no denying that killer groove and feel he has.

    Back to Zevon..... I loved when he was on Letterman. I commend
    David for doing what he did. It is *unheard of* for an entire show
    to be on one guy-- one guest on a night time talk show. That's to
    TV producers what white noise is to Radio. Americas attention span
    just can't take it, and the commercial sponsors won't accept it.

    Especially to have a guy like Zevon do four songs, none of which
    grab the attention of most of their demographic. I would
    speculate that it was all Dave's decision and he didn't care about
    all the flack he would get from the network, and probably ate the
    loss, himself. Who knows, though? It might've been their highest
    ranked show. I didn't see the numbers.

    Anyway, kudos to Letterman for going against the grain and doing
    such a great tribute. You could tell David was very sincere and
    Warren was very touched.

    And kudos to the producers of that documentary. I'm sure it will
    win an Emmy, not that their motivation was for such.

    Yes, very good stuff. Thank God for the smoking bans being put into place by
    progressive states and cities so we musicians don't have to end up like Warren
    just because we enjoy gigging.

    it made me think a lot about all the smoking i've done, and the potential
    damage i've done to myself (i quit almost 2 years ago).
