The Late Warren Zevon

Hard to believe he's been gone already a dozen years.

Even though Zevon penned the title tune to Linda Ronstadt's best album ever, it probably wasn't until this century that I actually listened to his version.

I've had her version on my phone playlist, but it's low recording level/EQ doesn't reproduce well through my Bluetooth stereo speaker on bike rides, so I recently added this version, which I've found I like quite a bit:

Another trivia bit - Perhaps I knew this before but had forgotten, but the other musical personnel on Zevon's Werewolves of London were none other than Waddy Wachtel (guitar), and Messrs. Fleetwood and McVie on drums and bass. Wachtel also played guitar on Linda's version of Hasten, and has been lead guitarist on all of Stevie Nick's solo albums.
