The French Inhaler

Poor Warren Zevon. One of the most unique and talented songwriters of the 70′s doomed to be forever associated with that goddamn song about werewolves. But he was a hero, albeit a flawed one, and one of my personal Dad Rock favorites. People like Jim Morrison died with their pants around their ankles thinking they were lizard kings but Warren faced his many demons and his music was the better for it. The man can hollow you out with his lyrics and The French Inhaler has some of his best. He passed away in 2003 after a battle with an untreatable form of cancer but made a final television appearance on David Letterman’s show prior to his death. The two were close friends. When Letterman asked if he now had any insight on life and death Warren responded only with “enjoy every sandwich.” What a dude. – Dan
