I can’t believe I did not have more exposure to Warren Zevon in the nineties.

Now, all these years later, I’m finding a whole body of work that is just amazing.

I just listened to “Don’t let us get sick” - which led me to explore a bunch of other songs.

Lastly, here’s tribute to the sound of Warren’s “Keep Me In Your Heart
