Warren Zevon

Time was running out for Warren Zevon as these songs were written and recorded. Sadly, Zevon was mostly a musician's musician, typically escaping the glare of the media, until shortly before his death. David Lindley (lap steel guitar) may have gained a bit more recognition for his formidable performance o­n Zevon's swan song CD. Bruce Springsteen came into Zevon's studio roughly around mid December 2002 to perhaps bring a bit of Christmas cheer to his ailing friend and to lay down a few vocal and guitar tracks for "Disorder In the House."  Bob Dylan's "Knockin' o­n Heaven's Door," an almost obvious, yet depressing choice for this album; includes a couple of beautifully melodic instrumental parts. Several top-notch musicians contributed to Zevon's last gasp musical bravado. Tom Petty and Mike Campbell, Emmylou Harris, Joe Walsh and Ry Cooder are o­nly a few the famous folks contributing o­n this heartfelt album.  The final song o­n the CD, "Keep Me in Your Heart" is a modest song that will stay with you; as will the genius of Warren Zevon.
